food choices look so tempting and delicious, but some of them can contain hidden factors that
contribute to the development of diabetes, a blood sugar handling problem that's a downstream result of pancreatic
dysfunction. In fact diabetes been declared an epidemic in the United States by the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC). [i]
In 2010, nearly 26 million people had
diabetes in the United States, with about 5-10% being Type 1 and the rest Type 2 (adult onset). The National
Diabetes Information Clearinghouse estimates diabetes costs $132 billion in the United States alone every
In fact it is so pervasive in the population that
diabetes can now 'boast' that it has its own day - National Diabetes Day. If you don't want to contribute to that
unhappy scenario, check your holiday menu for certain ingredients.
The most significant of these is one the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.)
has decided to overlook. They have known since 1930 that corn syrup (high fructose corn syrup) literally
kills the beta cells of the pancreas, the insulin-producing cells. They have refused to regulate corn syrup out of
the food supply.
Instead of protecting consumers,they have
succumbed to pressure from the food industry, which wants to add corn syrup to everything, because it causes anyone
ingesting it to crave the food to which it’s been added, and those cravings result in greater sales. In that
respect, the huge rise in corn syrup as a food additive and the corresponding rise in the incidence of diabetes
could be said to be caused by government regulations.
What this means is that the responsiblity falls to
consumers to ferret out and remove any sources of corn syrup from their menus. The importance of this
removing this one factor cannot be overstressed. Remove corn syrup and you've removed a major contributor to
the death of those precious insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells.
The food industry has recently undertaken a campain to
rename corn syrup, making it more difficult to discover through label-reading. According to the Health
Sciences Institite, some other names now used include:
* Tapioca syrup
* Crystalline fructose
In Canada, they call it “glucose-fructose.” And in
Europe, it’s “isoglucose.” And I’m sure there are more.
If the label doesn’t say “sugar” or “cane sugar,” you
can be pretty sure it’s some form of HFCS.

consider, there's a simple way: just don't buy or eat any processed
