It’s hard to see it sometimes, but the natural health community has achieved many important victories over the last few years in exposing the truth about dangerous chemicals and food ingredients. Here are some of the major victories we’ve collectively achieved:
High-Fructose Corn Syrup exposed
We’ve been victorious in spreading the word about the dangers of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which I call “liquid sugar crack.” The public has learned so much about the dangers of this refined ingredient that food manufacturers are now switching away from HFCS and using more natural refined ingredients (such as evaporated cane juice, which is far better for you than HFCS).
You can even buy Hunt’s Ketchup now, which declares right on the front label, “NO High Fructose Corn Syrup!”
Not surprisingly, the Corn Refiners Association has spent millions of dollars trying to obfuscate this issue by claiming HFCS is perfectly good for you. They’ve attacked virtually every news organization that writes about HFCS, and they run television ads that try to spin the issue in their direction, but they’ve failed!
