A study by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy has found that nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products with HFCS as either the first or second ingredient contained mercury, which is toxic to human beings.
This comes on the heels of the revelation that the corn industry recently tried to rebrand, or as some might call it ‘rename’ high fructose corn syrup to just ‘fructose.’ It seems like they’ll do damn near anything to load us up with HFCF, doesn’t it?
“Mercury is toxic in all its forms. Given how much high-fructose corn syrup is consumed by children, it could be a significant additional source of mercury never before considered,” the study’s co-author, Dr. David Wallinga, warns. “We are calling for immediate changes by industry and U.S. Food and Drug Administration to help stop this avoidable mercury contamination of the food supply.”
But until those steps are taken, the only thing we can do is avoid products that contain fructose, or HFCF at all costs. The link below will help you identify which products contain it.
Otherwise, keep an eye out for the ingredients in soda, juice, chips, candies, breakfast bars, and baking ingredients.
