Is High-Fructose Corn Syrup Safe?

Monday, 12 July 2010 08:58 AM

Question: There are new ads touting the safety of high-fructose corn syrup. Is there some new research backing them?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Abundant scientific evidence exists to condemn high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). This toxic form of sugar is added to many foods and drinks and has become big business. When a product produces big business and big profits, the manufacturers push hard for even more profits. In this case, the product is poison to your good health.

As long as it isn't in the public's eye, the manufacturers ignore the research that warns about the product’s dangers. If it becomes well-known, then they go to their friends in the media to cover up the negative stories and to promote it as safe. If the heat is turned up too high, they pretend that they have some secret studies that not only show it is safe, but also that it can cure disease — it suddenly becomes wonderful.

If that doesn’t work, they put a lot of money into the hands of an unscrupulous scientist, and they will produce a phony “epidemiological” study to prove it is wonderful. Ignore their hype — HFCS is extremely dangerous to your health.
