Mercury from chlor-alkali plants: measured concentrations in food product sugar
We all have an idea that high fructose corn syrup is bad for us, despite what the commercials and the government tells us. It’s a caloric source with absolutely no nutrition whatsoever–the exact antithesis of what promotes longevity. So that’s bad enough. What if you knew this wonderful substance was also loaded with mercury? Yup. Many patients have asked me how it gets there. Well…HFCS is not actually a natural product, believe it or not. The process may involve corn, but that’s where the relationship ends. It requires a pretty elaborate process that involves an alkali procedure that uses mercury.
