Dois novos estudos têm acrescentado mais preocupações sobre o xarope de milho, frutose (High Fructose Corn Syrup), que prejudica o corpo humano muito mais do teor de açúcar simples pode sugerir.

Bebidas como Coca Cola, Pepsi, e produtos como bolachas e doces contem este ingrediente.

O xarope de milho de alta frutose contém 55 por cento de frutose e glicose 45 por cento. Ao contrário do açúcar de mesa, (aka sacarose) contém uma lista de 50-50.

Em primeiro estudo, publicado na revista Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Behavior, os investigadores da universidade de Princeton descobriram que ratos de xarope de milho de alta frutose consumir ganharam mais peso e desenvolver fatores de risco cardiovascular que mais consome ratos quantidades equivalentes de sacarose.

“Alguns argumentaram que o xarope de milho de alta frutose é diferente de outros edulcorantes, em relação ao ganho de peso e obesidade, mas os resultados deixam claro que isso não é verdade”, disse o pesquisador Bart Hoebel.

Hoebel e seus colegas deram dois grupos de ratos a mesma dieta suplementada com uma das duas bebidas açucaradas. Esteve a beber uma solução de sacarose, em concentrações semelhantes às encontradas em muitas bebidas açucaradas. A outra foi em uma solução de xarope de milho da frutose elevada em cerca de metade da concentração de uma bebida típica macio. Os pesquisadores descobriram que os ratos consumindo a solução de xarope de milho aumentou significativamente mais peso do que os ratos que consumiram a solução de sacarose.

Em uma experiência de seguimento, os investigadores compararam as alterações metabólicas em ratos alimentados com ração apenas em ratos alimentados com uma solução de xarope de milho rico em frutose. Todos os ratos consumiram a mesma quantidade de calorias.

Após seis meses, os ratos no grupo de xarope de milho ganhou 48 por cento mais peso. Também aumentou a quantidade de gordura (principalmente no abdômen) e houve uma diminuição de circulação de triglicérides. Estas alterações são consistentes com a síndrome metabólica, um conjunto de sintomas que predispõem o homem a doenças cardiovasculares e diabetes.

Cada rato consumido xarope de milho de alta frutose se tornaram obesos. Em contraste, os ratos alimentados com uma dieta rica em gordura não se tornou como obesos.

Outro estudo, realizado por pesquisadores da Duke University, uma vez envolve o xarope de milho de alta frutose em um risco maior de dano hepático.

Pesquisas anteriores já sugeriram que grandes quantidades de frutose no fígado da mesma forma que o consumo excessivo de álcool gera complicações de saúde. Um outro estudo relacionado com xarope de milho de alta frutose especificamente causou o aparecimento de lesões para a doença hepática conhecida como esteatose hepática não alcoólica (NASH).

O novo estudo, publicado no Journal of Hepatology, descobriu que o xarope de milho, frutose elevada agravou os efeitos da NASH.

“Nós descobrimos que o aumento do consumo de xarope de milho da frutose elevada está associada com feridas do fígado … entre pacientes com NASH”, disse Manal pesquisador Abdelmalek.

Os pesquisadores analisaram as dietas e os fígados de 427 adultos com NASH e descobriu que 19 por cento deles consumiram bebidas contendo frutose. 52 por cento dos indivíduos consumiram entre um e seis porções de bebidas contendo frutose por semana, enquanto outros 29 por cento consumiram pelo menos uma porção por dia. O consumo da maioria dos pacientes frutose piorou o número ea gravidade das lesões do fígado.

“Nós identificamos um fator de risco que podem contribuir para a síndrome metabólica de resistência à insulina e as complicações da síndrome metabólica, incluindo danos ao fígado”, disse Abdelmalek.

Abdelmalek notar que Nash é um problema grave que é tratável e, em alguns casos pode levar ao câncer de fígado, insuficiência hepática e da necessidade de um transplante de fígado.

Os investigadores ainda não têm certeza porque o xarope de milho de alta frutose danifica o corpo mais do que o seu conteúdo de 5 por cento de frutose pode sugerir. É a hipótese de que os efeitos negativos provenientes de enormes quantidades em que eles consomem – o xarope de milho de alta frutose é encontrada em quase todos os alimentos processados.

Outros pesquisadores descobriram que as bebidas feitas com xarope de milho de alta frutose, contendo altos níveis de carbonilas reativas que podem danificar as células. Outros sugeriram que a frutose xarope de milho de alta frutose é quimicamente modificados e, portanto, estende o corpo mais livremente do que a frutose no açúcar de mesa.

Jarábe de Maíz Alto en Fructosa causa Obesidad y daña el Hígado

Bebidas gaseosas y muchos productos procesados contienen este ingrediente.  Muchos ni siquiera los identifican es sus etiquetas.

Dos nuevos estudios han añadido más motivos de preocupación sobre el jarabe de maíz alto en fructosa (High Fructose Corn Syrup) que perjudica mucho más al cuerpo humano de lo que su contenido en azúcar simple podría sugerir.

Bebidas como Coca Cola, Pepsi y productos como Galletas y dulces contienen Jarábe de Maíz alto en Fructosa.

Bebidas como Coca Cola, Pepsi y productos como Galletas y dulces contienen Jarábe de Maíz alto en Fructosa.

El jarabe de maíz alto en fructosa contiene 55 por ciento de fructuosa y 45 por ciento de glucosa. Por el contrario, el azúcar de mesa (también conocido como sacarosa) contiene una relación de 50-50.

En el primer estudio, publicado en la revista Farmacología, Bioquímica y Comportamiento, los investigadores de la Universidad de Princeton encontraron que las ratas que consumen jarabe de maíz de alta fructosa aumentaron más de peso y desarrollaron más factores de riesgo cardiovascular que las ratas que consumen cantidades equivalentes de sacarosa.

“Algunas personas han afirmado que el jarabe de maíz alto en fructosa no es diferente de otros edulcorantes en lo que respecta al aumento de peso y la obesidad, pero los resultados dejan claro que esto no es cierto”, dijo el investigador Bart Hoebel.

Hoebel y sus colegas dieron a dos grupos de ratas una dieta idéntica, complementada con una de dos bebidas azucaradas. Una bebida consistió en una solución de sacarosa en concentraciones similares a las que se encuentran en muchas bebidas azucaradas. La otra consistía en una solución de jarabe de maíz de alta fructosa en aproximadamente la mitad de la concentración de un refresco típico. Los investigadores encontraron que las ratas que consumen la solución de jarabe de maíz aumentaron de peso significativamente más que las ratas que consumieron la solución de sacarosa.

En un experimento de seguimiento, los investigadores compararon los cambios metabólicos en las ratas alimentadas con sólo rata chow con ratas alimentadas con una solución más jarabe de maíz alto en fructosa. Todas las ratas consumieron la misma cantidad de calorías.

Después de seis meses, las ratas en el grupo de jarabe de maíz habían ganado 48 por ciento más de peso. También aumentó la cantidad de grasa (especialmente en el abdomen) y hubo una disminución de los triglicéridos circulantes. Estos cambios son consistentes con el síndrome metabólico, un conjunto de síntomas que predisponen a los humanos a la enfermedad cardiovascular y la diabetes.

Cada ratón que consumió el jarabe de maíz alto en fructosa se volvió obeso. Por el contrario, las ratas alimentadas con una dieta alta en grasas no llegó a ser tan obesas.

Otro estudio, realizado por investigadores de la Universidad de Duke, una vez más implica el jarabe de maíz de alta fructosa en un mayor riesgo de daño hepático.
La investigación anterior ha sugerido que grandes cantidades de fructosa en el hígado del mismo modo que el consumo excesivo de alcohol crean complicaciones de salud. Otro estudio relacionado al jarabe de maíz alto en fructosa específicamente causó la aparición de heridas del hígado conocidas como enfermedad de hígado graso no alcohólico (EHNA).

El nuevo estudio, publicado en el Diario de Hepatología, encuentró que el jarabe de maíz alto en fructosa empeoró los efectos de la EHNA.

“Encontramos que el aumento del consumo de jarabe de maíz de alta fructosa se asocia con cicatrices en el hígado … entre los pacientes con EHNA,” dijo el investigador Abdelmalek Manal.

Los investigadores analizaron las dietas y los hígados de 427 adultos con EHNA, y encontraron que el 19 por ciento de ellos consumía bebidas que contenían fructuosa. El 52 por ciento de los participantes consumían entre una y seis porciones de bebidas que contenían fructosa por semana, mientras que otro 29 por ciento consumía al menos una porción al día. El consumo de los pacientes de mayor ‘fructosa, empeoraba el número y severidad de las heridas del hígado.

“Hemos identificado un factor de riesgo que puede contribuir al síndrome metabólico de resistencia a la insulina y las complicaciones del síndrome metabólico, incluidos los daños del hígado”, dijo Abdelmalek.

Abdelmalek señaló que EHNA es un problema grave que no se puede tratar y puede conducir en algunos casos a cáncer de hígado, insuficiencia hepática y la necesidad de un trasplante de hígado.

Los investigadores todavía no están seguros de por qué el jarabe de maíz alto en fructuosa daña el cuerpo más de lo que su contenido de 5 por ciento de fructuosa podría sugerir. Existe la hipótesis de que los efectos negativos provienen de las cantidades masivas en las que se consume – el jarabe de maíz alto en fructuosa se encuentra en casi todos los alimentos procesados.

Otros investigadores han observado que las bebidas hechas con jarabe de maíz de alta fructuosa contienen altos niveles de carbonilos reactivos que pueden dañar las células. Otros han señalado que la fructuosa de la miel de maíz de alta fructuosa está químicamente modificada y por lo tanto se extiende por el cuerpo con más libertad que la fructuosa en azúcar de mesa.

High Fructose Corn Syrup poison promotes Obesity, Liver Damage

David Gutierrez

Two new studies have added more reason for concern that high-fructose corn syrup causes significantly more harm to the body than its mere sugar content would suggest.

All soft drinks, especially diet or light drinks contain this toxic ingredient.

High-fructose corn syrup contains 55 percent fructose and 45 percent glucose. In contrast, table sugar (also known as sucrose) contains a 50-50 split.

In the first study, published in the journal Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Behavior, researchers from Princeton University found that rats consuming high fructose corn syrup gained more weight and developed more cardiovascular risk factors than rats consuming equivalent amounts of sucrose.

“Some people have claimed that high-fructose corn syrup is no different than other sweeteners when it comes to weight gain and obesity, but our results make it clear that this just isn’t true, ” researcher Bart Hoebel said.

Hoebel and colleagues fed two groups of rats an identical diet, supplemented with one of two sweetened beverages. One beverage consisted of a sucrose solution in concentrations similar to those found in many sweetened beverages. The other consisted of a high-fructose corn syrup solution at roughly half the concentration of a typical soda. The researchers found that the rats consuming the corn syrup solution gained significantly more weight than the rats consuming the sucrose solution.

In a followup experiment, the researchers compared metabolic changes in rats fed only rat chow with rats fed chow plus a high-fructose corn syrup solution. All the rats consumed the same amount of calories.

After six months, the rats in the corn syrup group had gained 48 percent more weight. They also underwent an increase in fat deposition (especially in the abdomen) and a drop in circulating triglycerides. These changes are consistent with metabolic syndrome, a cluster of symptoms that predispose humans to cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Every rat consuming high-fructose corn syrup became obese. In contrast, rats fed a high-fat diet did not become obese in all cases.

Another study, conducted by Duke University researchers, once again implicates high-fructose corn syrup in a heightened risk of liver damage.

Previous research has suggested that large amounts of fructose liver in the same way as excessive alcohol consumption. Another study linked high-fructose corn syrup specifically with a form of liver scarring known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

The new study, published in the Journal of Hepatology, found that high-fructose corn syrup worsened the effects of NAFLD.

“We found that increased consumption of high fructose corn syrup was associated with scarring in the liver … among patients with NAFLD,” researcher Manal Abdelmalek said.

The researchers analyzed the diets and livers of 427 adults with NAFLD, and found that only 19 percent of them never consumed fructose-containing beverages. In contrast, 52 percent of participants had between one and six servings of a fructose-containing beverage per week, while another 29 percent had at least one serving per day. The higher patients’ fructose intake, the worse the scarring of their livers.

“We have identified an environmental risk factor that may contribute to the metabolic syndrome of insulin resistance and the complications of the metabolic syndrome, including liver injury,” Abdelmalek said.

Abdelmalek noted that NAFLD is a severe problem that cannot be treated and may lead in some cases to liver cancer, liver failure and a need for liver transplant.

Researchers are still unsure why high-fructose corn syrup appears to damage the body more than its extra 5 percent fructose content would suggest. Some have hypothesized that the negative effects come from the massive quantities in which it is consumed — high-fructose corn syrup is found in nearly all processed foods.

Other researchers have observed that beverages made with high-fructose corn syrup contain high levels of reactive carbonyls, which can damage cells. Still others have noted that the fructose in high-fructose corn syrup is chemically unbonded and thus spreads through the body more freely than the fructose in table sugar.

Choosing healthy foods now called a mental disorder

NaturalNews.com

In its never-ending attempt to fabricate “mental disorders” out of every human activity, the psychiatric industry is now pushing the

Eating healthy foods, pseudo-scientists say, is sign of a mental disorder.

most ridiculous disease they’ve invented yet: Healthy eating disorder.

This is no joke: If you focus on eating healthy foods, you’re “mentally diseased” and probably need some sort of chemical treatment involving powerful psychotropic drugs. The Guardiannewspaper reports, “Fixation with healthy eating can be sign of serious psychological disorder” and goes on to claim this “disease” is called orthorexia nervosa — which is basically just Latin for “nervous about correct eating.”

But they can’t just called it “nervous healthy eating disorder” because that doesn’t sound like they know what they’re talking about. So they translate it into Latin where it sounds smart (even though it isn’t). That’s where most disease names come from: Doctors just describe the symptoms they see with a name like osteoporosis (which means “bones with holes in them”).

Getting back to this fabricated “orthorexia” disease, the Guardian goes on to report, “Orthorexics commonly have rigid rules around eating. Refusing to touch sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soya, corn and dairy foods is just the start of their diet restrictions. Any foods that have come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or contain artificial additives are also out.”

Wait a second. So attempting to avoid chemicals, dairy, soy and sugar now makes you a mental health patient? Yep. According to these experts. If you actually take special care to avoid pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified ingredients like soy and sugar, there’s something wrong with you.

But did you notice that eating junk food is assumed to be “normal?” If you eat processed junk foods laced with synthetic chemicals, that’s okay with them. The mental patients are the ones who choose organic, natural foods, apparently.

What is “normal” when it comes to foods?

I told you this was coming. Years ago, I warned NaturalNews readers that an attempt might soon be under way to outlaw broccoli because of its anti-cancer phytonutrients. This mental health assault on health-conscious consumers is part of that agenda. It’s an effort to marginalize healthy eaters by declaring them to be mentally unstable and therefore justify carting them off to mental institutions where they will be injected with psychiatric drugs and fed institutional food that’s all processed, dead and full of toxic chemicals.

The Guardian even goes to the ridiculous extreme of saying, “The obsession about which foods are “good” and which are “bad” means orthorexics can end up malnourished.”

Follow the non-logic on this, if you can: Eating “good” foods will cause malnutrition! Eating bad foods, I suppose, is assumed to provide all the nutrients you need. That’s about as crazy a statement on nutrition as I’ve ever read. No wonder people are so diseased today: The mainstream media is telling them that eating health food is a mental disorder that will cause malnutrition!
Shut up and swallow your Soylent Green

It’s just like I reported years ago: You’re not supposed to question your food, folks. Sit down, shut up, dig in and chow down. Stop thinking about what you’re eating and just do what you’re told by the mainstream media and its processed food advertisers. Questioning the health properties of your junk food is a mental disorder, didn’t you know? And if you “obsess” over foods (by doing such things as reading the ingredients labels, for example), then you’re weird. Maybe even sick.

That’s the message they’re broadcasting now. Junk food eaters are “normal” and “sane” and “nourished.” But health food eaters are diseased, abnormal and malnourished.

But why, you ask, would they attack healthy eaters? People like Dr. Gabriel Cousens can tell you why: Because increased mental and spiritual awareness is only possible while on a diet of living, natural foods.

Eating junk foods keeps you dumbed down and easy to control, you see. It literally messes with your mind, numbing your senses with MSG, aspartame and yeast extract. People who subsist on junk foods are docile and quickly lose the ability to think for themselves. They go along with whatever they’re told by the TV or those in apparent positions of authority, never questioning their actions or what’s really happening in the world around them.

In contrast to that, people who eat health-enhancing natural foods — with all the medicinal nutrients still intact — begin to awaken their minds and spirits. Over time, they begin to question the reality around them and they pursue more enlightened explorations of topics like community, nature, ethics, philosophy and the big picture of things that are happening in the world. They become “aware” and can start to see the very fabric of the Matrix, so to speak.

This, of course, is a huge danger to those who run our consumption-based society because consumption depends on ignorance combined with suggestibility. For people to keep blindly buying foods, medicines, health insurance and consumer goods, they need to have their higher brain functions switched off. Processed junk foods laced with toxic chemicals just happens to achieve that rather nicely. Why do you think dead, processed foods remain the default meals in public schools, hospitals and prisons? It’s because dead foods turn off higher levels of awareness and keep people focused on whatever distractions you can feed their brains: Television, violence, fear, sports, sex and so on.

But living as a zombie is, in one way quite “normal” in society today because so many people are doing it. But that doesn’t make it normal in my book: The real “normal” is an empowered, healthy, awakened person nourished with living foods and operating as a sovereign citizen in a free world. Eating living foods is like taking the red pill because over time it opens up a whole new perspective on the fabric of reality. It sets you free to think for yourself.

But eating processed junk foods is like taking the blue pill because it keeps you trapped in a fabricated reality where your life experiences are fabricated by consumer product companies who hijack your senses with designer chemicals (like MSG) that fool your brain into thinking you’re eating real food.

If you want to be alive, aware and in control of your own life, eat more healthy living foods. But don’t expect to be popular with mainstream mental health “experts” or dietitians — they’re all being programmed to consider you to be “crazy” because you don’t follow their mainstream diets of dead foods laced with synthetic chemicals.

But you and I know the truth here: We are the normal ones. The junk food eaters are the real mental patients, and the only way to wake them up to the real world is to start feeding them living foods.

Some people are ready to take the red pill, and others aren’t. All you can do is show them the door. They must open it themselves.

In the mean time, try to avoid the mental health agents who are trying to label you as having a mental disorder just because you pay attention to what you put in your body. There’s nothing wrong with avoiding sugar, soy, MSG, aspartame, HFCS and other toxic chemicals in the food supply. In fact, your very life depends on it.
