It is an ingredient of approximately 6,000 consumer foods and beverages sold worldwide such as gum and other sugar substitutes like Sweet'N Low and Equal. Previously mentioned research done by Robert Cohen is significant because the artificial sweetener is frequently used in beverages such as coffee and tea which are regularly drank with milk, thus increasing the health risk of phenylalanine absorption into the blood stream. With that being said, the FDA still denies that any part of aspartame is absorbed into the blood. It is no secret that the dangers of aspartame in the human body are numerous. However, is it also no secret that corporate America and the appeal of wealth is the driving force to many decisions.
You'll also find it in processed foods ranging from salad dressings and ketchup, to jams, jellies, ice cream and many others - even bread. HFCS contains 14-percent fructose, much more than regular corn syrup. I'm concerned that it has disruptive effects on metabolism, because the body doesn't utilize fructose well, and humans have never before consumed it in such quantity.Of course, HFCS isn't solely to blame for the obesity epidemic. The AMA correctly pointed out that as consumption of HFCS rose, Americans were also consuming more calories (of all kinds) and becoming less active. All told, however, consumption of HFCS in the United States increased by more than 1,000 percent between 1970 and 1990, and a study published in the April 2004 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, concluded that Americans over the age of two consume more than 300 calories daily from caloric sweeteners, one-sixth of their average daily calories.
High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) was introduced back in the 1970’s and quickly filled the demand within the soft drink industry. Sodas depended heavily on the sugar cane as a natural sweetener; unfortunately it was unstable and volatile. HFCS provided consistency and was easily accessible when it was introduced and financially made more sense when compared to the unsteady cost of sugar. Before you knew it, HFCS found its way into foods and was no longer just for the soft drink industry. Today, HFCS can be found in just about every food product that you can think of.
Taste Test: Splenda vs. Sugar Taste Test: Splenda vs. Sugar Introduction Americans are more health conscience now than they were decades ago which is why they are completely dedicated to finding ways to consistently reducing the caloric and sugar intake in their diets. As a result, many are focusing on the use of artificial sweeteners and sugar substitutes. Because of this health conscience era, the use of Splenda, in particular is used in just about every food, drink, candy etc. Splenda, along with other artificial sugar product, is popular because it does not add any calories, but what makes Splenda stand apart from other sugar substitutes is its claim that it is made from sugar and taste exactly like sugar. Although widely accepted, there are those that prefers the use and taste of nothing but regular sugar because they do not like the tast of the artificial sugars on the market, however, although Splenda’s claim of being made from sugar and taste exactly like sugar, there are those that swear that they could taste the difference between the two.
HFCS became an attractive substitute and is preferred over cane sugar by the vast majority of American food and beverage manufacturers. Soft drink makers such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi use sugar in other nations but switched to HFCS in the U.S. in 1984. Large corporations, such as Archer Daniels Midland, lobby for the continuation of government corn subsidies. Nothing is ever absolute, and everything has chance to be good or bad. HFCS could help soda companies rich so the employees may have better salary, or HFCS could make us sick, cause physical disorders if we have too much of it.
I do believe sugar can be addicting because I myself have never gone a day without having some kind of sugar. Lustig, Schmidt, and Brindis states how “[o]ver the 50 years consumption of sugar has tripled world wide.” Instead of fixing the problem we are just getting worse. Since sugar is “cheap” we should make it more make it more expensive and hope for a change. Also, even though petitions keep getting “denied” we shouldn’t give up until there is a change. My uncle has diabetes and every time he sees me eating chocolate or some sort of candy he tells me that I’m going to end up dying from diabetes also because that’s all he would eat, I wouldn’t really take him seriously I would just laugh about it.
Due to the lack of nutrients this diet provides and such low calorie intake, this diet can be used for no more than 6 weeks, with a 3 week break in between. Now that we have discussed where these two diets began, let’s discuss the diet plans. HCG and Slim-Fast have two very different diet plans. Slim-Fast offers shakes, snack packages, and meal bars while, The HCG diet consists of a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. This hormone is something that already exists in men and women, but it is increased in pregnant women and is said to speed up your metabolism.

The mix should have a sufficient initial impact and long term viability on sales so as to recover CSP initial investment of $400 million in 10 years. In 2005 the overweight U.S. population was about 209 million Americans. Competitors in the weight loss drugs included Alli, which was an over-the-counter drug with FDA approval, all other competitors were herbal or dietary supplements thus not regulated by any governing body. The legal and social climate at the time was not in favor of the drug industry. As a whole this industry was tagged with deceptive advertising because side effects where not known until after the product reached the market, thus this translated to low credibility from consumer’s and the professional medical community perspective.
But sometimes health related problems cannot be avoided, and medicine are not cheap. But there are always another side of the story, good news is that the use of herbal supplements for medicinal purposes has increased dramatically over the past years. If used correctly, many herbs are considered safer than conventional medications.
