Why HFCS not healthy: The body handles this sugar differently than regular sugar, preferring to funnel it into fat stores and tricking our brains into thinking we need more food. HFCS is on the hot seat for raising colorectal cancer risk.
To avoid HFCS: Buy 100% fruit juice without HFCS, choose fresh fruit over fruit juice, and eliminate soft drinks. It isn't realistic to completly eliminate HFCS but you definitly can lower your intake.
Have a healthy, happy week.
