WTF !! OFFICIAL !! HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP IS AS ADDICTIVE AS COCAINE !!
[link to www.science20.com]

A paper presented at the 2013 Canadian Neuroscience Meeting, the annual meeting of the Canadian Association for Neuroscience - Association Canadienne des Neurosciences (CAN-ACN), says the problem is addiction rather than food wealth - the authors claim that high-fructose corn syrup can cause behavioral reactions in rats similar to those produced by drugs of abuse such as cocaine. It's the "Food Addiction" hypothesis that has recently become popular, which posits that we could be addicted to food just like drugs.

Addiction happens when drug use shifts from positive reinforcement to the negative kind; drugs are relied on to prevent or relieve negative states that otherwise result from abstinence (e.g., withdrawal) or from adverse environmental circumstances (e.g. stress).

HFCS is beyond terrible and probably the main reason for the obesity epidemic.

Sugar when eaten enough of will cue your brain, FULL ( for most people )

HFCS will not, it will say yum (even though its really not ) more more more bitch feed me.

Its in almost everything.

If you are over 40 and remember a real classic coke ( before new coke came out ) that had sugar in it, when they reintroduced Coke as Coke Classic, they changed over to HFCS. Anyway if you like Coke in the Mexican section of most grocery stores they have the Mexican Coke, it has sugar instead of HFCS and tastes like it use to. Plus a 12 oz bottle will be all you want (but taste great)

Im not saying sugar Coke is healthy but it is super vitamin food compared to its HFCS pretender.

My body literally cannot process HFCS any longer. I have intense knife like pain if I consume it.

Cool side effect from not eating it? Lost 70lbs and eliminated all weight related health problems. I am in near perfect health after being borderline half dead most of my adult life.

My mind is so much clearer too because I am not consuming the left over mercury used in the process to make the poison.

You can't eat fast food or most processed foods either because it is in everything.

Stop eating it and you may extend your life by decades.....

Soy messes with hormones, bad. But it is not nearly as bad as HFCS. It won't kill you nearly as fast. Causes different kinds of more treatable cancers.

I drink a glass of HFCS every morning. It does me a world of good and I've had no ill side effects except for the third nipple.

Definitely one of the causes of the diabetes epidemic. I have type 2, had it for years, undiagnosed and the butt head docs could not figure out what was wrong with me.
A pop with hfcs will elevate my blood sugar for 3 hours, a Pepsi throwback, made with sugar, elevates for only 30 minutes. Very telling I think!

Try gluten withdrawal from bread.

I have autism and wheat and diary products contain proteins my body can't fully digest. In the brain they cause a false-opiate like reaction.

Doubt it, pick up a box of processed "food" and read the label...we grow an absurd amount of corn here, so they had to come with ways to use it.

Studies (suppressed) also show that HFCS increases the number of fat cells around the chest and abdomen (versus the thighs and hips).

Just look around at all the little girls and tweens with big tummies and regular legs.
