Reduce High Fructose Corn Syrup in the Diet for Better Health
It probably won’t shock anyone to learn that America has the highest consumption of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) of any country in the world. The average American will consume 55 pounds of HFCS every year.
Residents in Hungary consume the second-highest amount of HFCS where each person ingests an average of 46 pounds of HFCS. Meanwhile, HFCS consumption was less than 0.5 kilograms each year, per person, in India, Slovenia, Ireland, Sweden, Austria and Denmark.
Researchers from the University of Oxford and the University of Southern California found, specifically, that prevalence of Type 2 diabetes was 20 percent higher in countries where the food supplies contained HFCS.
