HFCS

High Fructose Corn Syrup is something to steer clear of and here's a link to an article I was guided to that you might find interesting. I think I've mentioned that the only sweetener I can consume right now is honey, but I've used Agave Syrup for my girls since not using sugar (because I think using them was increasing illness). As a result of the article, I'm dumping the Agave today.

I've been worried about our food supply for a while now. The more I read and learn I come to KNOW ever more clearly how the commandment from our Prophets to have a garden is truly inspired! I'm so glad Jessie is all for gardening and supporting my efforts at tight record keeping of our gardens (which takes a lot more time than just placing seeds in the ground wherever. I want to know what produce we like best so we can plant and consume that which we prefer.

I wonder less (after reading this article) why I was gaining weight so rapidly! MAN, I had no IDEA about fructose and it's implications to weight loss/gain. I didn't even read every word of the article and learned a LOT.

Did you read it? What did you learn that you didn't know before?

Thanks for the link. I avoid HFCS, but was unaware of the dangers of Agave Nectar.

Hi,
My google alert picked up your article. Thank you so much for the link to the article on HFCS. I've always wondered why Fructose metabolism favor lipogenesis, now
having learned about naturally occuring L-Fructose vs. the D-Fructose found in HFCS, I understand. I am writing a book; I think it will be called "Killing us Sweetly".
Try StopHFCS.com for an extensive list of HFCS-free foods and beverages.
To your health.
