According to Dr. Mark Hyman MD 2013, “The current media debate about the benefits (or lack of harm) of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in our diet misses the obvious. The average American increased their consumption of HFCS (mostly from sugar sweetened drinks and processed food) from zero to over 60 pounds per person per year.
During that time period, obesity rates have more than tripled and diabetes incidence has increased more than seven fold. Not perhaps the only cause, but a fact that cannot be ignored.” Read More > http://drhyman.com/blog/2011/05/13/5-reasons-high-fructose-corn-syrup-will-kill-you/#close
God willing I still have no major or minor health issues at my age, 48. None. So while I continue to workout walk miles per week, and drink protein with branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s), take my assortment of vitamins and minerals and tremendously cut out cooking oils and definitely no pork. I decided to start to remove the highly poisonous high fructose corn syrup from my diet too. Now, I do have a soda or two each week but nothing like I used to drink. I’m drinking more green tea, black tea, filtered water, coconut water (See: “The Truth About Coconut Water” by Kathleen M. Zelman a WebMD Expert Contributor http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/truth-about-coconut-water) and eating Halal meats, loads of veggies (peppers, chili, green, yellow, red and orange along with Italian sweet red onions and green onions), and cooking lots of hot and spicy curry and biryani dishes. I love all types of beans too. I need to buy and eat more fruits and expand my diet to a variety of mushrooms. I feel great. Full of energy. I am sleeping better. Keep in mind I pray a lot, daily and practice transcendental meditation (TM) weekly. It’s a very good feeling.
