First I’d like to say a few words on High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Originally developed by the Japanese to supplement the sugar industry by making a cheaper sweetener (1) …”over time, and in large quantities, HFCS and other manipulated fructose sugars can undermine your metabolism, leading to weight gain, high triglyceride levels, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and obesity. Research continues to show that over consumption of these altered sugars is a growing health hazard — at the same time food manufacturers make it increasingly hard to avoid them!
Relative Sweetness ScaleSucrose=100
High-fructose corn syrup 120–160
When I refer to HFCS, I mean commercially produced high-fructose corn syrup. HFCS starts as corn syrup, a liquid sweetener extracted from corn, which is then manipulated into a more practical form. The corn syrup is chemically altered by enzymatic processes to yield a different balance of monosaccharides (simple sugars) than that found in ordinary corn syrup”
…fructose doesn’t trip our sense of satiety as sugar would, we are, perhaps, eating more sugars to compensate, and upping overall caloric intake in the process. Further, they extrapolate that because HFCS is usually higher in fructose than table sugar, HFCS can be correlated with parallel increases in obesity.”
So you can easily see how dangerous it is, we eat some and just want more and more until we burst at the seams so to speak! This is just dandy for the food industry, you eat some and just want more, More, MORE!
It is in most prepared foods, even in Ketchup, can you believe how badly we are treated by the prepared food industries, and then we find out that, honeybees are fed that nasty HFCS too, so even so-called natural foods are tainted with it.
I want to interject a note of warning here about sugar in general.
CANCER CELLS HAVE MORE INSULIN RECEPTORS THAN ORDINARY CELLS. This means sugar feeds cancer. Remember this the next time the doctor wants to give you a glucose drip.!!!!!
White sugar is not a natural product it also is highly refined and not recognized by the body as a real food. While many foods contain sucrose it is changed to make white sugar.
I AM JUST GIVING YOU THE OVERVIEW HERE, INVESTIGATETHIS STUFF FOR YOURSELF!
ASPARTAME (NutraSweet) number of people with ………………………………………………………………………………………………….Aspartame reactions
(2) “- Decreased vision and/or other eye problems (25%)
(blurring, "bright flashes," tunnel vision)
- Pain (or or both eyes) (9%)
- Decreased tears, trouble with contact lens, (8%)
- Blindness (one or both eyes) (3%)
This product has some highly toxic reactions in the human visual pathway, and we are beginning to observe the tragic damage to the optic nerve, such as blindness, partial to total optic nerve atrophy.
Once this destructive process has developed there is no return of visual restoration. We are beginning to see and observe another toxic reaction which affects the central nervous system which is
related to phenylalanine levels in the central nervous system. These
observations are more vague, however, it stimulates the damaging to
the brain and the central nervous system, having the manifestations
as PKU Neuro Damage. Over 3,000 cases have been reported, and the
FDA to date has ignored this existence.”
FORMALDEHYDE POISONING FROM ASPARTAME
“In 1997 there was an increase in aspartame users reporting severe toxicity reactions and damage such as seizures, eye damage and vision loss, confusion, severe migraines, tremors, depression, anxiety attacks, insomnia, etc. In the same years, Ralph Walton, MD, Chairman, The Center for Behavioral Medicine showed that the only studies which didn't find problems with aspartame where those funded by the manufacturer (Monsanto). Given the agreement amongst independent scientists about the toxicity of aspartame, the only question was whether the formaldehyde exposure from aspartame caused the toxicity. That question has now been largely answered because of research in the late 1990s.”
I also know some honest doctors will advise patients with colon problems not to eat anything with NutraSweet in it. I know from researching that aspartame has been implicated as one of the causes of Lupus and MS.
I am lucky, I have instant reactions to it by getting mouth sores even from a piece of gum.
READING OF LABELS IS ESSENTIAL! Anytime you see 'no sugar', or something like that on the front of a package suspect NutraSweet is in it. They are no longer required to put the NutraSweet trademark on the fronts, check the list of ingredients!
Please read the originals on the links I have in the sources section, what you see will convince you even if I didn’t.
(3) …Stevia is a plant bearing green leaves that have the particularity of tasting very sweet, without containing any sugar. I’ve had the occasion to try fresh stevia leaves and they certainly can be a nice addition to salads, smoothies, and fun to eat plain too.
Stevia extract, on the other hand, is a refined product that comes in two forms: One is a green powder that is made basically from the dried leaves of the stevia plants, another extract is even more refined and is sold as a white powder. Stevia extract is also sold in the form of a clear liquid.”
The problem is you are exchanging one addiction for another, and see where it says it is also a refined product, that means it is another non-food.
(2)…tests indicate that the additive causes cancer in animals, which means it may increase cancer risk in humans. ‘Nuff said?
CYCLAMATES AND SACCHARIN
Either completely taken off the market or their use is limited. Both ‘proven’ cancer threats.
Remember that sugar feeds cancer, so maybe it’s better not to eat any sweeteners except for Honey, and definitely unpasteurized is best, get it at a local Farmer’s Market and ask if it’s real honey. Or eat whole fruits, it’s best to eat them with the peel if it’s edible, certainly pineapples/bananas for instance are not edible peels. Apples remain the best fruit for your health.
See: An apple peel a day might keep cancer at bay, Cornell food science study finds
The healthiest part of an apple might be the peel
School lunches are not generally popular with those that have to eat them, and sometimes with good reason.
"What kind of pie do you call this ?" asked one schoolboy indignantly.
"What's it taste of ?" asked the cook.
"Then it's apple pie, the plum pie tastes of soap."
What can a whole apple do that half an apple can't do?
It can look round.
After a minor mathematical error on a routine report, a worker's boss tried to belittle him in front of his peers. Angrily she asked, "If you had 4 apples and I asked for one, how many would you have left?" Quickly he replied, "If it was you who asked, I'd still have 4 apples."
MOUSE JOKE Since I hate mice I love this one
A group of young children were siting in a circle with their teacher. She was going around in turn asking them all questions.
"Davy, what noise does a cow make?"
"It goes moo."
"Alice, what noise does a cat make?"
"It goes meow."
"Jamie, what sound does a lamb make?"
"It goes baaa."
"Jennifer, what sound does a mouse make?"
"Errr.., it goes.. click!"
“A grizzled old man was eating in a truck stop when three bikers walked in. The first walked up to the old man, pushed his cigarette into the old man's pie and then took a seat at the counter. The second walked up to the old man, spat into the old man's milk and then he too took a seat at the counter. The third walked up to the old man, turned over the old man's plate, and then he took a seat at the counter.
Without a word of protest, the old man quietly left the diner. Shortly thereafter, one of the bikers said to the waitress,
"Humph, not much of a man, was he?"
The waitress replied, "Not much of a truck driver either, he just backed his big-rig over three motorcycles."
