High Fructose Corn Syrup Everywhere You Look August 7, 2010

Yesterday I wrote about the new study which confirmed what many of us have thought for a long time: high fructose corn syrup sucks.  Now, what do you do about it.  I’m sure you’ve all gone through your cabinets with a fine tooth comb to rid your home of this scourge.  There are two ways to avoid HFCS: don’t eat processed food, including most restaurant food, and/or shop the natural food section.  But remember, you always have to read those labels.  I really think HFCS and trans-fats have a lot to do with our countries weight and health issues.  Eat real food, eat organic food, shop your local farmers market, frequent stores that carry locally produced food and eat at restaurants that use local ingredients.  Changing habit is hard, but it can be done, and you’ll be glad you did.
