honey is fine, it is a natural product from bee's. It is more or less the processed sugars that are bad for you. It is all odd, I dunno I had to learn about it in my poisoning of the planet and other bio classes and the things the processed and man made stuff does after a while is just nasty. You preserve your own body and fat cells.
There's a few things to consider. First any fake or chemically treated or altered "sugar" such as HFCS is definitely going to be worse than regular sugar. But that doesn't mean regular sugar is better, you've got to consider that sugar makes the pancreas work overtime as well as creating glycation in the body which is also not good.
And yeah of all the sugars out there I definitely would choose honey but if I wanted to go the absolute low glycemic route I'd choose Stevia.
I stay away from: HFCS, Sucralose, Aspartame, Splenda or any other unnatural substance.
Also food for thought. People began to find out how bad MSG was for them (not the naturally occurring kind found in animal tissues but the kind that has been extracted and processed and hence made unsafe) that they then renamed MSG, hiding it in other "ingredients" including "natural ingredients", "natural flavor" and even "spices".
As mentioned in this thread, they are about to rename HFCS since it's been exposed for what it is.
If anyone's interested, the documentary "King Corn" is a good expose into the bizarre practices of the corn industry, the subsidizing of the corn farmers and why corn is the most prevalent ingredient in all of our food. The writers of the film at one point actually decide to try making HFCS in their kitchen. The process definitely made me never want to go near that stuff again.
I would be upset if they banned it. People need to be able to make their own decisions, and not have the man do it for them.
That and I mean come on, it's not the healthy prime examples of our species eating it, it's over weight dudes, like myself, who are addicted to it, and we aren't really benefiting anyone if we get rid of it, I'm just going to get upset, then people are gonna be all like "Man is that fat Dude getting upset over this?" at which point I'm going to get upset and flip into my "fat" rage (my brother named it that) and that's not good for people withholding my HFCS.
I need to lose some weight.
