Dangers of GMOs and High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)


Health Scandal of the Decade – Monsanto’s GMO Perversion of Food

In the 2010 growing season Monsanto plans to unleash its latest Frankenfood experiment on the American and Canadian public, a new version of mutated corn with eight abnormal gene traits (called Genuity SmartStax corn).



Monsanto’s Toxic and Mutated World – Is Sugar Safe to Eat?

It should come as no surprise when a Monsanto product poisons the earth and our food. Our planet has never recovered from the forty-year Monsanto-led PCB contamination that was banned in the U.S. in 1977.



Monsanto Frankenfoods Take Aim at Wheat

Monsanto is dusting off its wheat research and making a new effort to turn our wheat crop into one of its Frankenfoods – a serious cause for alarm for anyone who wants to eat normal food.



The Key Foods to Eat Organic

It remains a considerable challenge for the American public to find fresh food of adequate quality. We all know we should eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, but many of them are contaminated with pesticides, fungicides, and insecticides. See which foods have the highest pesticide loads and are the most important to eat organic.



Are Cargill’s Plant Sterols Dangerous?

By now you have certainly seen the ads – take plant sterols and lower your cholesterol. These wild cholesterol-lowering claims, which the FDA is ignoring because Cargill is pushing them, are associated with various health risks. Studies show they may be quite dangerous for your heart.



How High Fructose Corn Syrup Causes Obesity

I have repeatedly stated that high fructose corn syrup should be banned from the food supply. A new study confirms the diabolical nature of this substance to induce leptin resistance and consequent obesity – and future heart disease and diabetes. The study found that fructose consumption raised triglycerides in the blood, even though obesity and weight problems had not yet set in. This problem blocks leptin from getting into your brain, setting the stage for the first changes that lead to obesity. Then, when overeating occurred, the prior fructose consumption led directly to a handicapped metabolism and obesity.



AMA Condones High Fructose Corn Syrup

It was a pivotal moment that only comes around once in a while, as those wearing their vested interests on their sleeves are put on the hot seat and have to make a very public decision. Such was the case last week at the yearly policy meeting of the American Medical Association when a resolution was on the table to require the labeling of high fructose corn syrup products with an obesity warning. Embarrassingly, the AMA voted in defense of high fructose corn syrup, making its entire organization look like a ship of fools.



High Fructose Corn Syrup Makes You Stupid

We now know the real reason so many of our kids can’t finish high school. They have been fed too much high fructose corn syrup and they have become dumb. This is not a laughing matter. Coke and Pepsi are on the line for playing a significant role in wrecking the intelligence of several generations of children – as well as making them fat. Of course, birdbrains at the AMA want to give our kids statin drugs because they don’t have the guts to make a policy statement against high fructose corn syrup as a major cause of obesity.
