'HFCS is high fructose corn syrup, a very concentrated synthetic extraction from corn, which is usually GMO, and is commonly processed with mercury, a rather toxic heavy metal. It happens to be sweeter per volume than cane sugar, and it’s cheaper.
Despite HFCS manufacturers attempts to soften their product’s toxicity by claiming it’s natural and in fruit, the fact is this concentrated form of fructose is a disaster that competes with refined sugar as a poison.
Fructose from fruit without added sugar is no big deal. It’s combined with the fruit’s natural compensating compounds and fiber, it’s without mercury, non-GMO (so far), and more it’s not concentrated to be more than one’s liver can handle.'
