High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS): A Substance That Cause Autism, Diabetes, Cancer, Liver Failure, Heart Disease, Obesity & Dementia is Now Hidden Under New Name

Big Food is at it again, fooling us with false advertisements to make us buy food we don’t want to consume. Most of today’s consumers are increasingly health conscious and want to avoid products that contain health-damaging ingredients. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is one of the substances that has made a bad name for itself. What did the food companies do, did they take out the harmful ingredient? No, they just changed what they called in on the package to fool us.
HCFS is now being disguised under the names “fructose syrup” or, simply, “fructose”. It is a processed chemical sweetener that you will find in products such as bread, cakes, cookies, condiments and soft drinks. It is cheaper to use than sugar and extends the shelf life of products, so naturally the food companies are inclined to use it, but at the detriment of their customers’ health.
The food companies don’t want to change their money-making ways, so they found an ingenious way to get around the food labeling laws. HFCS is sub-categorized based on its fructose content. Normal HFCS – HFCS 42 or HFCS 55 – contains either 42 or 55 percent fructose. The term “fructose” is now being used when foods contain the ingredient previously called HFCS-90, which has 90 percent fructose. Identifying HFCS-90 as “fructose” makes it possible for them to label the product as ‘not containing HCFS’ when it actually does.
This questionable sweetener – which is much cheaper than regular sugar, and extends the shelf life of processed products – has been linked to many health problems such as aut Continue reading

Help Me Help Them: Diabetes Awareness Month

Help Me Help Them: Diabetes Awareness Month

I am the overly-emotional type. I really am and I am not afraid to admit it. Though it sometimes feels like a weakness, I have come to view it primarily as a strength. I am in touch with my emotions and I feel things deeply. So let me first admit that I am teary as I write this. Not from sadness so much as a deep feeling of connection and community with other people. And a desire to help that community out in some small way.
Donating my book sales
November is Diabetes Awareness Month and if you know anything about me, you know that I am extremely passionate about low carb and keto diets as the key to diabetes management. I feel strongly that for both insulin-dependent and non-insulin dependent diabetes, a low carb diet should be the first course of action. For Type 2 diabetics, going low carb can actually put the disease into remission. For Type 1, it often gives them so much more control over their glucose levels and allows them to reduce the amount of insulin they require.
As I feel moved to do something for my low carb diabetes community during Diabetes Awareness Month, I am donating $2 for every copy of The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen from now until the end of November. Admittedly, this is actually most of what I make on each book, but it just feels right to me. Both the Type 1 and the Type 2 Diabetes communities have embraced and supported me, and helped me make this cookbook a huge success. I want to give back.
So if you haven’t bought the book but were thinking about it, or if you wanted to purchase a copy for a friend or loved one, or if you happen to know that som Continue reading

Ken's Engineered Type 1 Diabetes Whole Food Plant Based Low Fat Lifestyle

Ken's Engineered Type 1 Diabetes Whole Food Plant Based Low Fat Lifestyle

Previous experiences with my doctors were extremely difficult because they wanted to control my Type 1 diabetes by prescribing specific medication doses and defining what I should eat. But, none of that was working. I felt extremely diseased and disabled. I was kind of terrified from all that and so decided to apply the techniques of my profession: fault analysis and electronic design. In addition to studying cellular level biology at the Midwestern State University library, I began an elimination diet to find out what foods did what. All the foods my doctors were telling me to eat were not working. In fact, those foods made things far worse. That was how I discovered that plant based foods, very low fat and low protein with no animal products were the best foods. I found starches and fruits made diabetic control and my life extremely easy.
Every time I would go to my doctor, however, I would end up in an argument. He would review my blood work and tell me that my blood work was the best he had ever seen. My A1c was 5.1 my total cholesterol was 100. Then his next sentence was that he wanted to put me on Lipitor. I asked him why and he told me it was because "All diabetics should be on Lipitor." He then proceeded to explain that my diet was all wrong because it was not a proper diabetic diet. He explained that my A1c was too low and should be in the diabetic range - since I am a diabetic. This went on until June of 2012.
2012 was the year I discovered Dr. McDougall during some casual Google surfing. I did not know before that time that there was such a thing as a plant based Continue reading
