Yet one more reason to avoid high-fructose corn syrup

HFCS, a common sweetener used in a zillion and one processed food products, has come under fire for its deleterious effects on body chemistry. Now a new study finds one more reason HFCS sucks: mercury.

After one set of scientists found mercury — yes, everyone’s favorite brain-impairing element — in almost half of commercial HFCS, another bunch of scientists decided to get specific and tested 55 common consumer products that use HFCS. And guess what? Almost a third of them contain mercury.


Just don’t eat this shit, people. EAT REAL FOOD, not factory-generated crap in cans and packages and boxes.
