As if you needed any other reason to reduce sugar intake, a study found that the over-consumption of foods with fructose is linked to high blood pressure. Not surprisingly, giant groups who want you to eat more HFCS (the worst kind of sugar) have spoken out against this and other similar studies.
Foods with Fructose and the Link to High Blood Pressure
The study, found in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, says that people who consume more foods with fructose have a greater chance of developing high blood pressure.
Fructose is a natural sugar found in fruit and vegetables, as well as many processed foods containing high-fructose corn syrup. What’s unnatural about it all is the sheer volume of fructose we find in foods in the form of HFCS and just how much of this sweet syrup Americans are taking in.
In the 1950s and 1960s, sucrose was the main source of sugar for Americans. Sucrose is the sweet substance in table sugar made from sugarcane or beets. But with the development of cheap HFCS, that changed dramatically.
Research shows that Americans consume 35 pounds of high-fructose corn syrup each year, although according to Princeton University, the average American consumes 60 pounds of HFCS every single year.
This most recent study found that those participants who took in 74 grams of fructose (the equivalent of about 2.5 sweet drinks), were at a 28% greater risk of blood pressure levels 135/85 or higher and a 77% greater risk of extreme high blood pressure, with levels greater than 160/100.
Soon after the findings were published, the Corn Refiners Association spoke out saying that the researchers overestimated the amount of fructose in the drinks being studied. The researchers denied this.
The American Beverage Association also weighed in, saying the findings, “furthers the confusion and misunderstandings about high fructose corn syrup and sugar-sweetened beverages,” adding that no cause and effect relationship could be established through this particular research methodology.
The researchers agree, to a certain extent, and admit that further research is needed in order to say for certain that foods with fructose caused the high blood pressure and weren’t simply a contributor or linked.
With the addition of HFCS to the American food market, obesity has skyrocketed. And there is little doubt that the fructose in this cheap sugary syrup plays a large role in the growing waistline and declining health of society.

These studies are worthless. Showing a correlation between to things means NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Probably, 20% of those that had high blood pressure had more female than male children, or maybe they were mostly brunettes, and probably many other correlations could have been made. I don't have any problem understanding someone like Jimmy Holmes. The world is fairly ugly if you look around and see that you are surrounded and dominated by retards.
I went primal by following Mark Sissons "Primal Blueprint," and I have seen my blood pressure finally get under control due to cutting off HFC and grains.
So shill all you want Rick, we know you're poaid to share "your" opinion.
"The researchers agree, to a certain extent, and admit that further research is needed in order to say for certain that foods with fructose caused the high blood pressure …" Uh, Wally, I suppose the researchers are "shills" too, ha? Something must be done to shift procreation in favor of intelligence. The system favors the procreation of dull minds, and it isn't benefitting anyone.
Everyone knows GMO'd HFCS is cause health problems, there doesn't need to be a "study" there needs to be action. Get back to C&H sugar, the real deal. None of us were fat like this in the 70's!!!
Who cares about fat? That's just a product of media brainwashing. Men should be muscular, and woman SHOULD BE FAT. Nothing wrong with fats. Female fats attract, and provide many healthy benefits for women. Every medical study I have read on longevity shows fat women live longer (within reason, probably not if they are 500lbs or something).
Corporate greed, the reptilians and the new world order for global depopulation are all key factors for the evil world around us and the extra care needed in life.
There are a huge range of factors that need to be avoided and a large number of countermeasures involved so I've made a list to show how complicated this is all getting:
Good for health
Clean safe water, get Vitamin D3 test and corrected (25 hydroxy test is needed), organic fruit and veg, gluten free vegan diet, turmeric/curcumin, b17, apricot seeds (a few only a day), cayenne,vitamin C, nuts and seeds (brazil nuts, walnuts, macadamia nuts, almonds), hemp seed, sunflower seeds and oils cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil, coconuts and coconut oil, vitamin B12, folic acid, cinnamon, garlic, asparagus, egg plants, and sodium bicarbonate (bicarbonate of soda), chlorella, coriander leaf (cilantro), spirulina, kale, spinach, exercise regularly, sleep well, reduce stress, fruit and vegetables peeled and washed, steamed or boiled.
So people need to try and avoid the following or if not possible then at least reduce exposure to):
Bad for health
Milk/dairy, wheat/gluten, mercury (see iaomt.org if you have amalgam fillings), aluminium,MSG (under many names), aluminium, fluoride, chlorine, BPA (and bisphenols), PFOA, non stick cookware, endocrine disruptors (synthetic hormones), aspartame, artificial sweeteners, HFCS/glucose fructose syrup,,phosphoric acid, hydrogenated fats and oils (transfats), food or drinks heated by microwave ovens, acrylamides from burnt/baked foods, alcohol, tobacco, processed meat, nitrites, canola/rapeseed oil, GM/GE foods, vaccines, some prescription drugs (like anti depressants), carageean, pesticides (reduce exposure), contamination with petrochemicals residue), benzene, high voltage power lines (pylons/ high voltage cables ideally at least 200 metres away), near electricity substations, smart meters and radiation risks (though his very difficult from depleted uranium in the atmosphere and radiation from Fukushima) and of course barium, strontium, aluminium and nano engineered biological material from chemtrails responsible for morgellons. There are also suggestions of avoiding magnesium stearates in vitamin supplements from Dr Mercola. Watching TV (estimates vary but 22 minutes of lifespan reduced per for not to mention programming by the broadcasters.
I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant
for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
