I have been watching a lot of television the past couple days. More than I care to admit. I have come to the conclusion that it’s basically all trash. Especially, this one particular set of commercials. The one’s that talk about how high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is made of corn, so it’s okay. It makes my blood boil everytime I see one of them. Then I go on a tirade informing anyone who’s near me, that the commercials are all lying liars.
If you haven’t seen it, here’s one of them:
My favorite part is the part that says, “It’s just like sugar and okay in moderation.” Well, that’s the frickin’ problem! HFCS pushers are making us think we have easy control to keep our intake in moderation. Have you looked at all your food labels? HFCS is in many of our “healthy” foods (yogurt, cereals, whole grain breads & crackers, etc.). It’s in almost any of your sauces and condiments. Of course, you will find it listed in any type of “snacky type” of junk food. It is so pervasive. How can we eat this lovely highly processed corn product in moderation if we buy anything that comes in a package?
Nice try, you health destructors! I will not be fooled by your propaganda! Sadly, I fear that many Americans may be swayed slightly by their commercial hoopla. Keep up your guard, people and continue to read those labels to save yourself from the highly unnutritious, severely processed HFCS. There are options, you just have to be vigilant.
