Teens who consume diets high in fructose at increased cardiovascular risk – Yahoo! News.

Well, there’s a surprise, friends!


That cussed high fructose has insinuated itself into so many food groups, particularly carbos like bread and cereal, and I’m going to start reading the contents in pasta.  It’s also found in “Organic” products, where one would assume the highly concentrated sugar is not GM.

Or is that assumption fair to the consumer?

Mention high fructose to a lady in a weight reduction program and she’ll start berating herself for eating too much.

Keep convincing the “peoples” (pips) it’s their  fault while pumping garbage into basic, essential foods.  Note, concentrated high fructose corn syrup can run a car.

Our metabolisms don’t run at 30,000 revs per minute.  We’re kind of slower, and it’s taken millennia for the human body to adapt to present conditions, along with the foods that have shared the various insults and delights of climatic adjustment, etc.  Not only has natural fructose been corrupted by “intensifying care,” it is now genetically unfamiliar.  Our bodies cannot recognise it.

So what happens to the corn syrup; the high fructose; the whatever chemobabble experts describe it?  Where does it go?

That’s rhetorical, friends, and if you can’t answer it yourself,  here’s a hint – Google “percentage increase in obesity levels.”  Now you’ve got it!

While our food is being stretched with unassimilable junk, our bodies are simultaneously deprived of the nutritive elements displaced by the high fructose.


The tongue tastes the wheat, the sweet, the milk, the processed meat, etc., and gives a great sigh of relief and satisfaction…”not too long now and the good stuff will be reaching the bloodstream, brain and bones.”

But the “good stuff” AIN’T THERE!

The “good stuff” has been replaced by the concentrated fat generators.

Light bulb gone on yet?

An hour later, the cellular intelligence feels thwarted, cheated – it hasn’t been fed!

The sudden sugar high leads to the rebound effect – and the body feels woozy, hungry, and even desperate for more food.

And the celery stick isn’t doing it.  Celery sticks are mostly cellulose and water.

All around are food images – newspapers, TV, internet ads, the chap at the next desk over, ploughing into a BBQ onion smothered burger, the chocolate eclairs parked next to the bread aisle – in fact, less dangerous than most commercially prepared breads.

Monsanto stocks must be through the roof!

But not on my conscience. First do no harm applies to all therapeutic protocols.

Plain, simple foods are more expensive than processed junk.  Cheaper in the long run, tastier and more satisfying.

From what I’ve read of Government farm subsidy policies, smacks of genocide to me, genocide of the poorer populations, or at least a dumbing down, transformation of the immense human potential into a thuggish, self serving entity.

Foods plain and simple.  And as organic as you can afford – but still read the labels.  If you can’t understand the terminology, don’t buy it.  High fructose corn syrup has more aliases than a CIA operative in witness protection!

Caveat – there will be an additional expense – a new wardrobe a few sizes down.  Eating Healthy brings weight down gradually, without trauma to organ or tissue, no foul body odor, and with no risk of  flip flops.

Now for a dish of brown rice, finely chopped broccoli, organic chicken and fresh fruit.

To your Good Health.
