WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT FRUCTOSE AND HFCS COULD KILL YOU

Cutting back on the fructose in your diet could save your life — and shrink your waistline. Table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) — the primary sources of fructose — are staples of our food supply, and are even found in foods that aren't necessarily sweet, like breads, soups, ketchup, and salad dressing. These sweeteners are linked to health problems such as obesity, diabetes, and joint and abdominal pain. They may also increase your risk for liver and kidney diseases, premature aging, and certain types of cancer.
