Fructose and Liver Disease in 10% of Teenagers

Scientific research shows high fructose corn syrup and table sugar are causing serious liver disease in 10% of our teenagers.

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and table sugar (sucrose) are both made of glucose and fructose. HFCS contains glucose and fructose as single sugars and sucrose contains them connected together (as a double sugar or disaccharide).

HFCS and ethanol are handled the same in the liver and lead to liver inflammation and eventually cirrhosis. One can of beer has an equally harmful effect on the liver as one can of soda with HFCS.

Watch this video to understand why you need to avoid HFCS.  Your liver has so many functions in the body relating to many organs and the immune system.
