The Bitter taste of High Fructose Corn Syrup
September 17, 2011

Surprise, surprise

The World Health Organization finally came clean with a blockbuster announcement. This organization recently said that most disseases can be attributed to poor nutrition and lack of exercises.

What a revelation!

I bet you are not surprised.


Because you are subscribed to this newsletter.

This newsletter, and my website are dedicated to natural health and wellness options. In all my postings and this newsletter, I, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, have always emphasized the fact that most diseases are lifestyle diseases.

This being so, we can also use our lifestyle to avoid, and even reverse the body's malfunctions.

The WHO finally agreed.

I wonder what the drug companies think about that.

Oh, HFCS, you know what that is, don't you?

High Fructose Corn Syrup. This product is in almost all foods, especially if they are canned foods. But all is not well with hfcs. It turns out people are becoming aware of this product's negative effects on their health.

A lot of people are avoiding products that contain this exotic sweetener. This gets the manufacturer obviously worried about its bottom line. You don't think they would just sit down and take it in the face of this bad PR, do you?

No, sir.

Switch to plan B.

Plan B on the part of the manufacturer involves a name change. The manufacturer of High Fructose Corn Syrup, will now like to call this poison-drum roll, please-Corn Sugar.

See the power of word magic? Orwellian-speak at its best. Call it any name other than what it actually is-as long as it is deceptive enough to keep people buying. Isn't capitalism something?

Change the name of an unhealthy product, and presto, it is transformed into a super-healthy hero!

I'm trying to see if I can use this kind of magic to convert the paper pieces in my shredder into dollars. After all, if it works for them, why will it not work for me. Magic is magic, right?

But being healthy is no magic. It, in most cases, is a choice, as the World Health Organization rightly pointed out.

Eat right, exercise, maintain a positive attitude, AND choose natural products any chance you get.

Good health to you.
