       One of the best pleasures in life is eating whatever you desire. But what if those snacks or dressings can just completely ruin your health? One dangerous ingredient in food is high fructose corn syrup (or HFCS). Our digestive system has a hard time breaking down this artificial substance. Not only do they cause diabetes, they can also lead up to heart problems. Don’t risk it!


       Today, more and more companies are replacing sugar (a much healthier sweetener) with HFCS. They try to cut off on production expenses because HFCS is actually a cheaper replacement. By doing so, the manufacturers aren’t looking out for those they can be harming.


       Mark Hyman, a physician that graduated from Cornell University, is warning us about HFCS too. He is completely against it and has tried numerous ways to alert the public. Another specialist is Dr. Mehmet Oz. HFCS ended up on his list of “5 Ingredients You Should Stop Eating Right Now” when he has invited onto the Oprah Winfrey show in 2014.


       It can be possible that the HFCS used by the companies are harming our environment too. Studies show that the syrup composes of GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms). The seeds of GMOs can travel and taint other plants through their journey.


       What’s more? The country is at risk of a higher percentage of obese people. If we can spread the word out to hopefully ban HFCS, we will likely be able to see the numbers going down.
