High Corn Fructose Syrup Is Not Good For The Liver or The Heart


Do you drink lots of sugary drinks that are loaded with high fructose corn syrup? Have you checked lately to see if your drinks contain corn fructose syrup? The next time that you choose a tea or drink from the local store, check the ingredients. If the drink contains high corn fructose syrup, you may want to think about your heart and liver.

According to, Harvard Health Publications, "Give the liver enough fructose, and tiny fat droplets begin to accumulate in the organ. This buildup is called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. If it becomes severe enough, it can cause serious liver damage."

Also, two recent studies have linked higher intake of fructose with higher chances of developing or dying from heart disease.

For more details about the health effects of corn fructose syrup, read the article,Too much fructose a hazard for heart health, from the Harvard Heart Letter.
