New evidence shows what many already suspected: high-fructose corn syrup is even worse for you than table sugar. According to a new study out of the University of Utah, female rats had higher levels of mortality and lower levels of pregnancy when 25 percent of their daily caloric intake came from fructose and glucose, the common ingredients in high-fructose corn syrup. This illustrates the danger of high-fructose corn syrup, especially to women. Right now, Americans on average get 15 percent of their daily caloric intake from sugar. One major reason for the high levels of high-fructose corn syrup in the average American’s diet is due to the USDA. The USDA prioritizes corn and beet farmers by providing them with greater subsidies than farmers growing healthier options. This makes high-fructose corn syrup and junk food cheaper and more available. This may make it hard to avoid junk food, but by replacing processed foods with whole foods, you can reduce your chances of getting Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer, and other life-threatening diseases.
- He’s turn out to be very notable lately to state that unreasonable measures of sugar in your eating regimen has harmful impacts.
- Presently, new research from the University of Utah affirms Dr. Lustig’s position, demonstrating that corn syrup is more harmful to female mice than table sugar.
- Producers have since quite a while ago asserted that HFCS contains at most 55 percent fructose .
“…processed fructose is far worse, from a metabolic standpoint, than refined sugar.”
