Jack's Fitness Is Raising Awareness Of The Dangers Of High Fructose Corn Syrup
Work on your body, keep it fit, but watch what you put IN your body too.
Jack's Fitness strongly believes that when people have better knowledge about food products and their effects on the body, they will probably make healthier choices to support optimal health.
Company director Ms. Carr points out that very few people know about the health issues associated with high fructose corn syrup: "We all know that too much sugar is bad for our health, but many people don't give a second thought to corn syrup. This product has been rapidly replacing sugar in our foods since the late 1980s. The problem is that it's worse than sugar and can contribute to a wide range of health issues."
High fructose corn syrup is a genetically modified sugar substitute. It's much cheaper than sugar in the United States, plus only a small quantity is needed in food production because it's so much sweeter than natural sugar. For these reasons, it's widely utilized in products such as breads, yogurts, soups, breakfast bars, cereals, lunch meats, and soft drinks; among other commonly consumed foods.
Ms. Carr explains some of the potential health risks associated with consuming high fructose corn syrup: "There's been a lot of research confirming that high fructose corn syrup increases the risk of weight gain, obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and liver damage. Plus, it has been known to contain alarmingly high concentrations of mercury."
For Ms. Carr, education is the key: "Our Jack’s Jump Rope is designed to keep our customers fit and healthy, but unless people watch what they eat they are still at risk of developing health problems. Jack's Fitness encourages people to pay closer attention to the ingredients in their foods and avoid high fructose corn syrup altogether, if possible."
Although high fructose corn syrup continues to be widely utilized, even the United State Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also recommends that people should limit their consumption of this ingredient. Jack's Fitness sincerely hopes that consumers heed these warnings.
