25. Corn Syrup Isn’t Good For You
Corn is an ingredient that is used so commonly in processed food that we simply don’t bat our eyelids anymore. It is used to thicken canned soups, is ground into a powder and used as a flavoring agent, and is even used to bind the meat together in a hamburger. Corn, minus the pesticides and other chemicals are of course really healthy but not in a processed form.
High fructose corn syrup is added to a number of products and gives you so many empty calories. Besides that, it spikes up blood sugar levels unnaturally and that’s unhealthy too.
