A poison that may be lurking in processed food


Mercury in Processed Foods
The culprit: High Fructose Corn Syrup

How has mercury made its way into common packaged foods found in any grocery store?

"One in ten calories consumed by Americans comes from high fructose corn syrup."

This study did not look at the health impact of high fructose corn syrup itself, but at the levels of mercury in foods made with high fructose corn syrup.

One third of the products tested had detectable levels of mercury. In another study, one half of the high fructose corn syrup tested had detectable levels of mercury.

How have these processing practices been allowed to continue?
