It's that time of year again you know. Halloween and the downhill sugarslide over the next two months have many reeling with thoughts of sugar plum fairies. It might not be in your head, but on your bones, and thats the fat of it!

Boy was I surprised at the ingredients in my all time favorite holiday-time concoction, Egg Nog. Of course I can think back to when I was a kid, when egg nog was always home made and made from real milk and real eggs. Then it was either whiskey or rum to flavor it, whipped up egg whites and real cream. You know that healthy fat that used to be floating on top of milk before the homogenization craze hit the sidewalk running and its all been downhill since then.

You don't want to get mixed up with any of those artificial sweeteners, you know the names, or that new stuff coming out that is a flavor enhancer to tingle the sweet buds of taste on your tongue. Oh pitty for those forgotten buds of bitter and sour....

So did you know that fructose corn syrup blocks the assimilation of calcium?

And did you know that no cancer patient can find remission as long as they ingest HFCS?

What about the fact that HFCS is the only sweetener that has proven to cause diabetes in test animals? I am not discounting the fact that artificial sweeteners are know to cause cancer but these are in a different class than HFCS).
HFCS is a synthetic filler that bypasses the liver and pancreas, eventually causing the pancreas to shut down.

HFCS is directly linked to weight gain and Type II Diabetes.

Where is the FDA on this terrorist (to health) product?

Just for each day, read those labels and just say NO!
