Startling new research has found that the highly acidic, neurological toxin high fructose corn syrup also contains the toxic element mercury, potentially for many years. Nearly one-third of the HFCS-containing grocery products tested in the study were found to contain detectable levels of the neuro-toxin mercury.
Read about the clever denials of the Corn Refiners Association and the attempts by their Chicago P.R. firm to get Natural News to remove their stories about high fructose corn syrup. (outright censorship). Today's shocking story reveals the truth on all this, and it warns you to avoid consuming high fructose corn syrup altogether.

"High fructose corn syrup is an acidic toxic sugar which compromises the delicate alkaline pH balance of the blood and tissues which may lead to serious sickness and disease. Add the neurological toxin mercury and you have the perfect combination for causing dementia or acidic brain wasting," states Dr. Robert O. Young, Chief of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center.
Study: High-fructose corn syrup contains mercury
By Robert Preidt, HealthDay
Almost half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contained mercury, which was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products where HFCS is the first- or second-highest labeled ingredient, according to two new U.S. studies.
HFCS has replaced sugar as the sweetener in many beverages and foods such as breads, cereals, breakfast bars, lunch meats, yogurts, soups and condiments. On average, Americans consume about 12 teaspoons per day of HFCS, but teens and other high consumers can take in 80% more HFCS than average.
"Mercury is toxic in all its forms. Given how much high-fructose
corn syrup is consumed by children, it could be a significant
additional source of mercury never before considered. We are calling for immediate changes by industry and the [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] to help stop this avoidable mercury contamination of the food supply," the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy's Dr. David Wallinga, a co-author of both studies, said in a prepared statement.
In the first study, published in current issue of Environmental
Health, researchers found detectable levels of mercury in nine of 20 samples of commercial HFCS.
And in the second study, the Institute for Agriculture and Trade
Policy (IATP), a non-profit watchdog group, found that nearly one in three of 55 brand-name foods contained mercury. The chemical was found most commonly in HFCS-containing dairy products, dressings and condiments.
