High Fructose Corn Syrup Causing the Poor to Become Obese? A new study from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville traces a disturbing correlation. Before 1990, there was no noticeable correlation between obesity and poverty.

HFCS existed as a benign and essentially non-controversial product for over 35 years until 2004 when Bray, Nielsen and Popkin published a commentary suggesting a potential link between HFCS consumption and obesity. 1 These authors buttressed their argument by charting the consumption of high fructose corn syrup along with the prevalence of obesity in. Doctors have concluded that high fructose corn syrup doesn’t appear to contribute to obesity any more than other sweeteners.” But this new finding is. HFCS is particularly linked with obesity among the poor. As study coauthor Alex Bentley, who heads the UT Department of Anthropology, notes, We found that the relationship between low income and.

But in pointing a special finger of blame at high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), the authors conflate correlation with causation. Soft drinks most likely would have contributed just as much to overweight and obesity even if they were still sweetened with sucrose. Find out whether high fructose corn syrup is really to blame for the obesity crisis.

Here’s the straight talk on the sweet stuff Donate to help vulnerable communities cope with COVID-19 DONATE. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is getting a lot of blame for American weight gain. But, as one recent study points out, this blame may be unjust.

HFCS is similar in chemical makeup, nutritional value, and sweetness to other common sweeteners, including table sugar. The problem is the increase in sugar consumption. Sugar both drives fat storage and makes the brain think it is hungry, setting up a “vicious cycle,” according to Lustig.

Robert Lustig, MD. More specifically, it is fructose that is harmful, according to Lustig. Fructose is a component of the two most popular sugars.

The findings might be interpreted as confirmation that high-fructose corn syrup the much maligned sweetener added to many processed foods really does cause more weight gain than the other. The increased consumption of high fructose corn syrup, primarily in the form of soft-drinks, is linked with complications of the insulin resistance syndrome. Furthermore, the hepatic metabolism of fructose favors de novolipogenesis and ATP depletion.

We hypothesize that increased fructose consumption contributes to the development of NAFLD.

List of related literature:

“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,” says Dr Bart Hoebel, who specializes in the neuroscience of appetite, weight, and sugar addiction at Princeton.

Behind the scenes, food and beverage companies, who widely introduced high-fructose corn syrup in their products (soft drinks in particular), fueled this misconception by funding studies that confounded the impact of fructose with a larger set of dietary factors that correlate with obesity and sickness.

At the same time, over consumption of food additives (such as dyes and chemical preservatives), food with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), sugar, and trans-fats is costing the nation billions of dollars in preventable health care costs (Strauss, 2011).

Consumption of HFCS has increased over the past 30 years, but so have other factors that may also be implicated in obesity and diabetes, such as increased consumption of fats (including trans fats), decrease in exercise, and an overall increase in the total number of calories consumed due to larger portion sizes.

For example, Americans’ per capita consumption of caloric sweeteners—primarily sucrose derived from cane, beets, and corn (notably high fructose corn syrup)—increased by 43 pounds, or 39 percent, between 1950-1959 and 2000 (USDA, 2003b).

Coincident with the obesity epidemic has been a substantial increase in the use of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) (containing up to 70% fructose) as a replacement for sucrose.

  • HFCS is even in cough syrup and cold medicine. If you have a cold, fever, sour throat, or bad cough or if your kid does, try this. Not to mention, cough syrup and cold medicine may cause inflammation, harm the liver, make your sickness worse, and contains trans fats. To help ease a cold, soar throat, cough, or fever, take some fish oil either in a pill or drink it. The omega 3 in it is anti inflammatory. Olive oil has anti inflammatory omega 9 monounsaturated fats too. Just make sure to buy the extra virgin kind. light flavored olive oil is a joke. Avocado and sunflower oils also have omega 9 and walnut oil has omega 3 in it. That is one tip. The next tip is to make a tea of mint, ginger, turmeric, green, and/or chamomile. All of those have anti inflammatory properties and will help with sour throat, coughs, fevers, and colds. add a teaspoon of honey in it too. Honey has natural anti microbial properties and helps sooth a sour throat. Just one to two teaspoons is enough though. Eat citrus fruit. These have vitamin c to help your immune system and have potassium to replenish your electrolytes. Finally, consider a zinc supplement. Zinc is needed for your immune system. All of these are great tips and better than the crap found in cough syrup or cold medicine. If you do want to take a medicine, consider tylenol or advil. Not the chewable kinds though. The kinds you swallow in water are ok. Keep in mind that advil may cause an upset stomach.

  • Sugar is sucrose, sucrose is 50/50 glucose / fructose. High Fructose Corn Syrup is usually 42 / 55 glucose / fructose with the remainder being higher saccharides. There’s a slight difference in how healthy they are for you but the truth is, sugar, HFCS, its all bad for you. Avoid all sugar sweetened products. Avoiding only HFCS and then eating the same amount of sugar sweetened stuff isn’t going to help.

  • sugar from a natural source like fruits is actually good for you because generally there’s fiber attached.
    sugar like the one you put in your coffee or in a candy bar is bad. HFCS is thee worst form of sugar there is.

  • What about increased convenience-cars, and elevators-reducing the amount of exercise we do on a day-to-day basis? It’s never just one thing.

  • @TheShubLub
    If you had said that in the first place, fine, but nine times out of ten anybody who joins a debate with ‘moron’ doesn’t typically have much to offer. I’m glad we can converse without name calling.
    There are many things that are chemically similar to water but I wouldn’t drink them.
    I came to the conclusion that HFCS is unfit for human consumption at least 5 years ago.
    Go to WebMD and look up the article ‘mercury-in-high-fructose-corn-syrup’.

  • Question is why has the USDA done nothing about this. People still love soda, processed meats, processed juice and all the junk food we know.

  • @KingFahtah Yeah…. HFCS is in almost all snack foods which are sweet in the USA. I had to search for 10 minutes to find 1 Ice cream brand which used actual sugar, Breyers. Every other one has HFCS as the main sweetener. Most fruit juice is mostly corn syrup here as well. It is quite sad.

  • Sucralose, Stevia, Monkfruit, and Sugar Alcohol, are the best.
    Raw/organic sugar, maple syrup, honey, agave, and mollases are ok.
    Refined sugar, hfcs, aspartame, Saccharin, Corn Syrup/Glucose syrup, maltitol, and Glucose-Fructose are not ok.

  • I like how you made me paused the player just to read very carefully each grocery from that rather fast list of products that rolled up at the speed of lighting, starting at 0:52!
    Since USA goverment just passed the bill for the Free Trade Agreement between USA and Peru (I live here in Lima) many of these “goodies” might end up in our supermarket racks!!


  • each time i eat/drink anything thats high in high fructose corn syrup. it makes me like super sleepy/sluggish/tired type feeling that i really hate!

  • @KripDrip
    If you’re talking soft drinks, there are few that don’t have hfcs, so we don’t buy soft drinks.
    There is one SIerra Mist, and we only get that when it’s on sale.
    Think of it as ice cream. It’s a treat, not a staple.

  • I have to do an assignment for school regarding food-like ingredients added to save money or shelf life. I keep seeing these authors dissing “high fructose corn syrup” in it, and I keep remembering a commercial growing up where there was a man and his daughter (or fake, commercial daughter) walking around a corn field saying it was alright. That commercial stuck and I was always like “meh”, but now I know, thanks to your video, what the actual underlying harms are. My grades and I thank you, as well as my body. I’ve been trying to be healthier lately and I will make sure to stay away from fructose!

  • @whattothewhonow
    You completely missed the point.
    Princeton University researchers have demonstrated that all sweeteners are not equal: Rats with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained significantly more weight than those with access to table sugar, even when their overall caloric intake was the same.

    Yes, avoiding hfcs IS going to help.

  • Soy el único que habla español aquí???
    Soy de Tucumán Argentina, capital mundial del limón y un masivo productor de azúcar de caña.
    Últimamente ningún alimento en Argentina usa azúcar, todos los alimentos usan jmaf o hfcs, el problema llegó a Argentina ya que siempre usamos azúcar y ahora desde hace unos cinco años jmaf que cuesta 60% del precio del azúcar. Tengo entendido que si consumo azúcar llama a la insulina y se abre la célula para ingresar perooooo….si consumo jmaf, no llama a la insulina, no se abren las células y pasa derecho como glucógeno hepático o sea grasa abdominal……solo se trata de dinero, el capital en contubernio con los delincuentes de los organismos públicos que deben protegernos de alimentos nocivos, son los promotores de la muerte masiva de la población.

  • It’s not the calories, carbs don’t have that much. It’s the elevated insulin levels from the sugars. Other calorie dense foods don’t cause elevated blood glucose levels. Carbs make us want to keep eating.. Other foods satisfy and kill the interest in eating.

  • Healthy people must be aliens to you, but they’re just normal people who used to be sheep and woke up. And they come from all viewpoints and social strata. Sorry, no pigeonholing allowed.

    Again, I’m prepared to be wrong, but to be honest, I am not willing to take the chance.
    You may be happy to trust the mass-market food industry, most people don’t even care. I’m not that gullible.

  • My dad has been driving a truck damn near 3 decades. NAFTA is the first non-military acronym I learned as a kid.
    I don’t like NAFTA.

  • I wish I had known about fructose when I was younger. I was a complete fizzy drink addict. I peaked at a little over 300 lbs. I’m now on my way to getting rid of that junk but it’ll take a while. I don’t think I will ever fully recover though because no drink satisfies like a fizzy drink. The sweetness and the burn of the carbonation are the perfect combination. Sparkling water is just bitter and adding regular sugar doesn’t make it taste any better and regular sugar is 50% fructose so I can only lose doing that.

  • This is so true. I moved to the UK when I was 18 and gained weight so fast even though I was controlling my portions and eating normal food. Everything there has high fructose corn syrup. I got pcos in three months. it is irreversible. before that I was fine, never had any problems. can’t even eat bread coz u never know what is in it.

  • It’s not just fructose that affects the liver but purine as well. In fact purine is more damaging than fructose will ever be. Can you guess what foods are loaded with purine?

  • All i know is that americans seem to be the fattest people in the world. Europeans laugh at us.When i was a kid few people were fat now it seems most are.Just my opinion but i dont think it is because we are over eating…i do think it is the food.

  • poisoning us with food. read label if there put back upside down to let othersknow with out wasting time let it rot on shelf they will stop selling it. why is it in salad dressing, ketchup etc. just to poison us!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Fruit sugars are about 55% fructose and 45% glucose. That is the same proportion of high fructose corn syrup that is used in soft drinks.
    Table sugar, which you call regular sugar, is sucrose which is a disaccharide of fructose and glucose that are easily broke into their monosaccharide forms after ingestion and are 50/50 fructose/glucose.
    Maple syrup is 66% sucrose.
    There are no sugars that are more healthy. Stop lying to people.
    Does not matter what you eat. If you are eating sugar, you are eating fructose.
    BS that fruit fructose is different. It is the same exact thing.
    The problem is over consumption of sugars, not the type.

  • I had a visit with my gastroenterologist today. He doesnt really believe fructose is the problem with fatty liver. I don’t understand how you can doubt it. Children needing liver transplants!! What does my doc think it is, video games!?

  • I wish they wouldn’t just say fructose because some people think they’re talking about fruit sugar natural fruit sugar because fructose in its natural form does not require an insulin carrier. I looked it up. Now I don’t know about this doctor but some people are really afraid of fruit. Also I haven’t listened to the whole thing yet but fat does play a major contributor to diabetes and fatty liver. If you listen to Neal Barnard Dean ornish dr. McDougall and T Colin Campbell dr. Doctor Esselstyn you’ll see that high protein and fat can actually raise blood sugar and activate insulin and what’s more it clogs up the cells so that the sugar cannot go into then.

  • Short and cane sugar sweet video highlighting the insidious nature of high fructose corn syrup. Where is the so called FDA in regulating accurate descriptions on labels so consumers have complete and clear information. After you taste non gmo cane sugar, you will be amazed at the difference with the artifcial corn syrup. Thank you Cleveland Clinic for unmasking the lurking threat of hfcs. Time for the food industry to quit serving inferior ingredients or the consumer will shift brands in this growing awareness. Are you listening Coca Cola? Give us the real deal sugar not the fake gmo corn syrup that is causing so many health issues.

  • How you can explain diabetes increasing at 4 per cent and obesity at 1 per cent is easy.
    100000 obese people
    A 1 per cent increase is
    101000 obese people

    25000 diabetics a 4 per cent increase is 26000 diabetics

    The increase in both cases is
    1000. Thus 1000 obese people have diabetes now.

  • I understood it completely. Those fructose comments were my opinion. All calories are not the same, same can be said for sugars.
    His and Dr Lustig’s theories would only begin to work if this definition of ‘large portions’ hit at least 2000g of carbs alone a day minimum. Even an obese adult would struggle to hit that.

  • I’ve been a diabetic since 1998 and have followed the traditional treatment and they don’t work. Since listening and following Doctor’s like Dr. Lustig not only has may health improved but the weight has drop as well so my advice is listen with a open mind, you might learn something and help someone live longer and healthier.

  • Yup this is all true! I’m literally allergic to corn syrup and in the UK corn syrup is banned! America has it A LOT of products in the stores that have High Fructose corn syrup in them. Very surprising and gross. Mostly a lot of kids drinks and foods have it as well. My diet has been very limited but I’m feeling way better after cutting back on the corn syrup products. Lost weight, face cleared up, and got so much more energy! Eating healthier is the way to go. ��

  • It’s pronounced “Fruke-tose” not “Fruck-tose”.It also affects females way more than males (mice studies say so).Just go out in public. See how many fit males you see (same as always) versus fit females (almost zero now).Women are mostly obese slobs now and few are bright enough to see why or even care.

  • High fructose corn syrup is whats bad. Fructose in Whole fruits has fiber and nutrients that can make in beneficial with in reason.

    This doesn’t include though many fruit juices, which are processed, and can have devistating affects on your blood sugar.

  • It was 25 years ago when I first went to America, but I remember being disappointed because there were no beautiful people like Hollywood movies. Yes, I was surprised that many people were fat. Americans want to be thin, you look ugly.

  • Good presentation but…. I doubt its the fructose is the culprit alone or even at all, perhaps more to do with the excessive amounts of fat these kids are consuming every meal time.
    All the fat/cheese in that Taco Bell you were eating was making you fat not just the soda. My guess is if you where to swap for a diet soda there wouldn’t be much difference as kids don’t exercise/playout anymore to burn off the carbs/fructose/sucrose which is the bodies preffered fuel source.
    Fat makes you fat. Fat and sugar combined should have a warning sign. Donut anyone! Good presentation though, nice guy!

  • Good, except you didn’t differentiate between HFCS and fructose itself. Fructose does not cause the same problems as HFCS and is a very different molecule.

  • Special credit to Dr. Robert H. Lustig, Professor of Pediatrics at UCSF, for examples of how sugar (glucose, ethanol, and fructose) is broken down

  • @AshtonPhoto I am simply trying to point that a lot of people getting over excited of ONE study it seems. It was on rats and we don’t know how many and how they tested. I also find it hard to believe that corn syrup is bad for you when it is almost chemically Identical to sugar. So why are you jumping to conclusions?

    “Today, you are that person.” Thank you thank you!

  • @TheShubLub
    Now there’s a compelling argument from a vast intellect.
    In any debate some clown comes along with senseless drivel.
    Today, you are that person.

  • The attack against Fructose is misguided. Yes, high fructose corn syrup laced with mercury is horrible for you, but pure fructose from a clean source can be a very medicinal carbohydrate. It’s big advantage is that, unlike glucose, it’s use is not inhibited by elevated free fatty acids aka the randle cycle.

  • @AshtonPhoto Yea I know I should have said so. I’m sorry. But it’s usually expected that there are only “morons” in the comment section, they only want to yell insults.
    I had a feeling you would bring up how other things are chemical similar yet, very different. Good point.

    I will look that up as you told me. I have a source of my own but I can’t post it here. I can’t post links.

    Should we continue this in private message ( you can write more that way) or keep it here?

  • This stuff gives me really bad palpitations and I get shaky if I ingest it. It’s in everything now and I have to read labels carefully in order to avoid it.

  • @Vegasclaw I don’t know it was just one study, and we don’t know how many rats they tested. I don’t think I would jump to conclusions.

  • One is the manufacture going to the original ingredients to is it organic or the soil is organic three are they trying to cut back prices and this is why the corn syrup is not good for us and for if they take a certain intake let’s say every day of drinking something with corn syrup is it bad for them just like anything else too much of anything

  • @wannabetvchef Greetings from Germany *SIGH*
    This news is UGLY, it is sad.
    MONSANTO have dishonestly exploited biotechnology that it is principally PROMISING, and they have SPOILT it giving it an UGLY taste.

  • While I don’t discriminate against heavier people, I do support eating food made out of food. In the case of bread, I think the HFCS is used to feed the yeast, which turns it into delicious bubbles for the crumb. I don’t know if they add more to sweeten it, since adding too much sugar to the dough will make it rise really really slowly. It sounds like a reasonable cost cutting device in this one very specific case. I would also like to be shown otherwise if this isn’t the case!

  • the Chinese woman who said “you guys dress horribly” and “eat horribly” like WTH are you even aware of how the Chinese dressed and acted around the world? they have no basic common sense at all ��

  • @TheShubLub
    Well, sometimes it’s good to have the 500 limit on things!
    You’re quite welcome to PM me.

    Here’s my thing:
    I don’t want to watch the news in 15 years time and hear, “Oh dear me, we made an awful mistake. It turns out HFCS causes cancer and the FDA just reversed its approval of the stuff…”
    You know? I just don’t trust them.
    Maybe I’m wrong and it’s perfectly benign, but every person I know that’s into healthy living won’t touch it.

  • Great vid, all v true. Also people who suffer from overweight or obesity should stop trying to cut out their favorite foods. What they should do is just increase their consumption of vegetables and fruits, things like fresh unsweetened veg juices packed with vitamins, salads, stirfry vegetables, fruit salads etc. They will find their appetite naturally changes & they gain control, the problem is they are undernourished & body keeps craving food. Cravings stop when body has nutrition it needs.

  • Without looking at the interrelation between the food&drug corporations, academia and the beltway, you cant make any headway and this video is just poking. By the way, these are all dominated by progressives. (and, ofcourse, people who have gone to university:)

    The classic example is the falsefied Lipid Hypothesis, which played out from the 40s all the way into the 2000s. Along with the sugar, corn and soy industries.

  • hfcs is not the only thing that is consumed that is associated with obesity increases, don’t forget devitlized stuff (white menance carbs). so is it hfcs that caused it? or a combination of stuff that leads to chronic long term malnutrition? if you fill up on empty caloires your not hungry enough to eat the good stuff. this causes a vicious cycle of food cravings and more junk and malnutrition. then eventually disease.

  • Tons of misinformation. Blaming fatty liver disease and obesity on sugar instead of all the fried foods and fats that westerners eat. You’re hilarious. Go to Asia and tell that to all the fit and skinny Asians who eat tons of sugar. You’re a quack. Fat causes insulin resistance. Sugar makes insulin more sensative. Fat is the cause of diabetes. Excess dietary fat prevents insulin from being able to process sugar and therefore insulin levels rise and stay high, leading to diabetes. You are causing a lot of harm with your bad information spreading

  • When I ingest corny syrup, my appetite goes through the roof. I can tolerate it in small doses such as in breads but soda, popsicles, candy bars etc. and I not only get fat and hungry but I have horrific acne break out. Sugars breaks me out but corn syrup by far breaks me out the worst. And artificial sweeteners aren’t absorbed?
    If that were true, they wouldn’t cause me to break out with acne too!
    These people are greedy liars and should have to watch their children die of cancer!.

  • Calories and Fat consumed without care or exercise cause obesity, choosing to single out one ingredient and jump on the political bandwagon against it only shows your stupidity. You deserve to be fat if you listen to this idiot. And fat people are idiots if they aren’t trying to control their weight, and should be descriminated against. There is no such thing as uncontrolable fat, you’re avoiding blame with the help of people who want you on their side of the political fence cheering you on.

  • I will definately watch that thanks, knowledge is great., I also agree sugar is addictive. Refined sugar particulary aint good for you but natural sugars found in fruits, vegetables and complex carbs are perfectly fine.  Not sure how your going to quit sugar when its found as carbs in most foods.  Its the body’s main fuel source not to mention the brains ÓNLY fuel source. Reminds me of my fat workmate who said funnily yesterday he gets all his energy and calories just from protein. lol.

  • Bmajors0331, flagged all your comments as spam. Posting the same comment 27 times is spam.

    You didn’t even say anything. It’s nice when the speaker actually has a point.

  • Thank you so much for your video. Great info and great delivery. I understand that “liquid” fructose is much worse than solid. How much fruit would you recommend eating and how dangerous if fructose delivered from the fruit? I am suspecting I may have fructose intolerance of sensitivity. Even though I take care of myself and I am slim I spend 7-08% of my life with a big stomach caused by bloating after eating fruits and simply carbohydrates. I may have candida too. What would you suggest to people who react so badly to fruits. I can exclude from my diet cabbage and cauliflower as well as dry fruit and peanuts which also, for some reason, cause me a lot of problems but I would not want to exclude all the fruits and vegies like carrots. what would you recommend. would be so great to see a presentation like this on on these subjects. Thanks again

  • There are probably a shit ton of factors that go into obesity. Most likely, this is just one of many reasons why our collective asses are getting larger and larger.

  • high fructose corn syrup and fructose are both sugars.. but different types of sugars.
    You should avoid eating things containing large amounts of carbs, esp fast burning sugars, like fructose which is high in fruits at night. Unless you run at night:)

  • @wannabetvchef The sucrose molecule is actually 1 fructose and 1 glucose attached together with a small chemical bond that is instantly broken when digested. Sucrose is metabolized exactly like HFCS because its the same thing… and science shows exactly that.

  • HFCS is in foods that you would never even suspect such as ham steaks “corn syrup solids”! You need to educate yourselves on how to identify these poisons. For example; HFCS in Canada is labeled sugar, glucose/fructose! Corporations have many tricks and phrases to fool the unsuspecting public.
    Search this and educate yourselves:
    “hidden sources of msg” without the quotes.

  • The fructose in HFCS is NOT fructose, anymore. It is a dirty, chemical concoction, that’s been mixed with chemicals and bacteria to break it down! Did you know that the former Vice-president of ‘Monsanto’ (GMO, HFCS) is now working right along side Obama as the new food “safety” guru? We’re all fucked!

  • People are struggling to lose weight while I’m having trouble keeping weight with no conditions except for occasional anemia and stress

  • “Anybody familiar with Einstein’s theory of….”
    oooh this guy might be well educated outside his field
    Oh, never mind🙁

  • Slow but surely, more and more conspiracy ‘theories’ are becoming fact.

    1) Food industry in conjuction with Pharmaceuticals. (Research Monsanto and Bayer)
    2) Global Child Sex trafficking Ring between the rich and the famous celebrities/politicians/etc (Jeffrey Epstein/Harvey Weinsten/Ghislaine Maxwell)
    3) CIA MK Ultra Mind control using LSD on unsuspecting mentally ill patients
    4) (Not proven yet)…..9/11 was DEFINITELY an inside job. ($2.1 trillion missing from Pentagon on September 10th, 2001).
    5) (Not proven yet) Satan runs the world.

     I’m being serious.

     Wake up
    Accept Jesus Christ (Real name Yahusha) into your heart before its too late.
    He died for your sins
    This whole world is wicked to the core.

  • No problem!
    Stick to fruits and veggies during the day and then shift over to veggies during the night time… Unless you workout at night, then have a piece of fruit right after you workout.
    Vegetables are packed with nutrients and high in fiber so they fill you up, therefore you don’t have to have that desert to fill you up cause you’ll be full!

  • My diet consists of sandwiches made from Ezekiel bread and I use high quality lunch meats Boar’s head. Then I usually put some baby spinach on the sandwich and a few pickles and a piece of cheese. I eat spinach salads with grilled meats(chicken, pork, filet, etc.) and use a natural salad dressing with no HFCS.
    I also eat a lot of fruits & vegetables, which contain no HFCS obv… and most of my fruits and veggies are organic.
    And Eggs made with coconut oil. Also fish oil, and BCAAs.Lotsof H2O

  • Because high fructose corn syrup, soybean and canola oil is in EVERYTHING that pretty much leaves me with hardly any options for groceries. You can’t even buy gum without aspartame, a neurotoxin. It’s really sad. I’m sooo disappointed In this country we live in. Truly a conspiracy to make us sick and medicated or dead.

  • I was in my food science and technology class… and this came up. I thought this was one of the reasons why as a society we are fat. But, he brought up interesting statistics I think from 1970 and 2002, and it showed we were eating about 500cals more a day and much of that increase came from fat sources(and not omega 3’s:)
    So, while HFCS is bad, I think fast food(high in fast carbs and fat), and little exercise plays a much more significant role. That being said, I eat no HFCS:)

  • Molecularly, HFCS is nearly identical to regular table sugar, cane sugar, maple syrup & molasses. You should be telling people to avoid those, too. HFCS became rampant in the American diet when the federal government pushed low-fat foods on America & it was substituted for fats in so many foods. The low-fat diet has made Americans the sickest people on the planet!

    The only sugars that are healthy are fructose contained in whole fruits with fiber, & glucose starches found naturally in vegetables & whole grains. You should emphasize those, especially the importance of eating lots of fiber whenever you eat any sugars.

  • That’s fascinating! Since corn syrup turns off leptin, people eating and drinking corn syrup won’t feel full, so they’ll just keep ingesting more corn syrup! And get even fatter.

    Please tell me who did the study! I am keen to know this.

    I’ve been studying heart disease. Just guess what makes low density lipoprotein go bad and turn into foam cells (The ones that clog up arteries.) It’s not cholesterol or saturated fat. They’re healthy.

  • I have had fatty liver for Seven years and I honestly thought there was nothing I can do about this. I`m so happy I found this fatty liver treatment solution FattyLever.4HealthCare. Info (remove space before info and open the website) just before it was too late. My liver is now recovering and my health is enhancing generally, even if I didn`t shed weight.

  • FOR A VERY SOPHISTICATED bmi go here: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-weight/bmi-calculator/ It takes into consideration your sex, age, physical activity. This is much more useful.

  • Fat Overconsumption >>>>>>>>>> sugar overconsumption

    I would have liked for that fact to be considered:(
    Good journalism nevertheless

  • @wannabetvchef Table sugar is actually a disaccharide, I herewith confirm. Hydrolysis will produces 1 mol of Fructose and 1 mol of Glucose (=Dextrose) out of 1 mol SUCROSE (=Saccharose). BTW Sucrose is largely degraded in the same way in the “stomach” of the bee, to become processed in to honey w/ 70%(Fructose+Glucose)

  • fructose can be very dangerous especially if u eat allot of fruit. fruit nowadays is pure sugar and low in minerals. when i was mostly fruitarian for 15yrs i got fatty liver+pancreas and almost died from cardiovascular damage.
    remember Steve jobs died of pancreatic cancer and was fruitarian for many years.
    choose lower fructose fruits.

  • Nobody eats American food anymore, it’s pretty gross. We don’t import their meat and we can read the legally mandated labels on the back of all our packaging. It’s all gross but as for Coca Cola, we have some fat, diabetic slow learners out there so that part is true.

  • ignorance is blitz? you dont even know how to pronounce the fucking name?
    go back to school and get more then a 2 year nutrition degree at community college.

  • Its ultimately up to ppl what they put in their bodies…however it helps when the authorities step in to promote being healthy. In my country in the Caribbean they banned sugary drinks in all schools…starting with reducing the percentage each year….its currently under 20% limit. When it took place, we only had water or flavoured water available to us…also sugary snacks and sweets were also banned. Eventually the orange juice companies cut their sugar content to about 10% and were able to be sold in schools again. However you will see alot of students walk with their water bottles because the time can be extremely hot and water is better at keeping you hydrated.

  • Ramdev was right, coke = toilet cleaner. ��
    He literally convinced my parents generation in India that.
    And coke was not allowed, along with all soft drinks, at my home.

  • Are you a true fully qualified Doctor? You show very little empathy towards people here. You come over very arrogant and hardly show a caring nature.

  • The preponderance if evidence does not yet support any of the statements made in this video. Tooth decay has been pretty definitively linked to excess sugar consumption….That’s it so far. There is not yet enough evidence to definitively conclude it as the cause of these chronic health problems. Dietary fat has however been heavily associated with these problems

  • Obesity is definitely listed on death certificates.  I suppose Dr. Lustig doesn’t know that obesity causes cardiac hypertrophy independent of hypertension.  Or that Pickwickian syndrome and Obstructive Sleep Apnea cause pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular hypertrophy.  Or that pulmonary emboli can be the direct result of obesity.  All of these are complications of obesity that are independent of the other aspects of metabolic derangement.  Yes, obesity kills.

  • Kids aren’t going outside, moms aren’t home to watch them
    Years ago, you are at dinner table until late 70s
    People had no 2nds, and ate dessert on weekends only.
    Fast food, was for giving teens jobs in the 50s

  • Loved it. Just one thing 2:40 money is not going to big PHARMA kinda disagree, there is no money in healthy people just sick ones, that’s the reason we are stuck with the same old food pyramid that goes here in the first place.

  • Haven’t seen you hit the Power industry yet, Hasan. Can you look into how bad power companies are (fossils fuels, nuclear, wind and solar companies included)

  • Same thing happened in South Africa.

    South Africa had banned chicken breast imports from the United States after the bird flu outbreak in the U.S..
    Years later, the poultry corporations lobbied Obama to let South Africa import these chicken breasts -which apparently, weren’t getting bought in the U.S. so they wanted to dump them in South Africa.

    Obama then pushed South Africa to let these companies dump their products here, by threatening to kick South Africa out of something called “AGOA”,which stands for the “African Growth..whatever whatever Association?”, whatever. This is basically a policy by the U.S. government that handpicks African countries that it wants to help grow and trade with in Africa…it’s kinda like the “African NAFTA”, except all the African countries are Mexico.

    So because of this, South Africa caved, and had to rush it’s health and safety regulations to ensure that these chickens are healthy for consumption, but that was the least of the worries.
    The biggest worry was that because these things are being dumped, they were obviously going to be sold at extremely low prices, meaning more people were going to buy these potentially unhealthy foods, and that the local poultry industry would collapse.

    And lo and behold, when the all clear was given for the chickens, the local poultry industry was destroyed. With lay-offs across the board, increasing the unemployment rate of an already economically strained country.

    This adds onto what Hasan said about how free trade has become detrimental to smaller economy nations, in that they have absolutely no freedom in their trade.

  • Such a difference from the “common wisdom” (ironic term) that we receive from a myriad of sources. This explanation makes sense. Thank you for your dedication to getting your message to the public.

  • What’s the first thing that come to your mind when you think about Americans?
    “Big guns, big trucks, big asses… And everything in Texas are bigger”

  • You mean hippies?
    You do realize that more than half of the sugar in an apple is Fructose, right?
    Also, the HFCs that are most often used in soda and juice is HFC-55, which is 55% fructose and 45% glucose. That means that most HFCs are really just a cheaper substitute for sucrose, which contains one fructose and one glucose per molecule.

  • ‘Free Trade’ is the most bullshit lie phrase ever. It doesn’t exist. All trade is negotiated and as well pointed out here it usually means one party is free to take advantage and exploit another country. Wealthy countries have protection measures to protect and subsidies industries whilst bullying poorer countries to not implement the same protection measure that would benefit them.

  • Still doesn’t explain why lab mice are increasing in weight when their diets are completely controlled by scientists. This is on average compared to 2 decades ago of the same breed.

  • IMO-latin americans along with native american types process sugar differently.
    the native americans NEVER were raised with sugar like european ancestors.
    similar to native americans not being able to drink alcohol -its the SUGAR!!
    USE BRAGGS APPLE CIDER VINEGAR with some water. and then down 8 oz of water afterwards

  • I’m american and moved to Australia a year and a half ago. My first month living here, eating this food I was thinking “Damn Australian food is so bland??” Took me a minute to realize it was just that sweet sweet corn syrup America feeds us through our baby bottles:))

  • If you’re reading this, I encourage you to e-mail a food company about this matter. Let them know that you the consumer, the person who puts money in their pockets, care about what ingredients and chemicals are going into our foods. Just take 5 minutes of your day and make your voice heard by those who need to hear it. Please encourage companies who already do keep HFCS out of their products, and tactfully ask those who don’t to consider switching to more expensive but less detrimental sugar.

  • the study suggests…
    not proves.
    l2scientific method
    what does this video have to do with all grain wheat beer brewing? lolutube

  • @Lachy101 Exactly right. The science is currently inconclusive. All this hate for HFCS is just another panic spurred on by ignorance of basic science and fear mongering by the lamestreet media.

  • @CodeguruX Wow! which company do you work for and do you make a living
    connected to this product? Because there is no other reason you could be standing up for something that seems to be in everything we eat because it is cheaper to produce. Although now even big companies are seeing the light.
    Consumers always control the market, They have just become a little smarter.
    This is just the start of change so get used to it.

  • I also notice, many kids don’t have a decent bedtime.
    When kids are up past 9:30 pm, especially in the single digits, they could gain weight.
    Kids need to eat at the kitchen table during the week

  • hey. if one never eats HFCS but accidentally has a couple of bites of food with HFCS, will the fat accumulate to a large amount? or does fat only begin to show when consuming it daily? (hint this happened to me recently)

  • That’s funny asking in different countries what pops into their head in regards to the US. Ask people in the US what they think about those countries and grab a snack. I’d say grab popcorn but that’s all kinds of nasty

  • Actually, as I understand it, science indicates obesity is not a cause of diabetes, rather they are both symptoms of metabolic syndrome.
