Score another one for the processed food industry. Recent studies have found that high fructose corn syrup, a major ingredient in sweetened beverages and snacks, also contains the deadly toxin mercury. So, in addition to the other problems associated with fructose – diabetes, weight gain, high blood pressure, and inflammation – we now have mercury poisoning.

Who consumes the most fructose? Kids. Who has developing nervous systems susceptible to mercury toxicity? Kids. What is to be done? Avoiding processed and especially sweetened foods. Lose the sweet tooth – it will make you smile.
