As Addictive As Cocaine: HFCS – America’s Most Deadly Addiction?

Before It’s News – by Live Free or Die

A little over a year ago, I did what was once unthinkable, I gave up anything and everything containing high fructose corn syrup. I did it for a big reason: I had come to the conclusion that it was killing me. Those multiple energy drinks a day to go along with my Pepsi habit and 2 candy bar a day routine was rotting out my insides, and I knew it, so I gave them up cold turkey. I haven’t turned back and I have no regrets whatsoever.  
My suspicions were somewhat confirmed with both this release of a new study from the 2013 Canadian Neurosciences Meeting which proves that high fructose corn syrup is as addictive as cocaine as well as a new study on bee colony collapse. No wonder the elite keep pushing this stuff on America and our children, it’s part of the depopulation agenda. Give it up; you don’t need it.
When you throw Monsanto’s GMO corn into the HFCS death brew and their trackrecord of poisoning the masses, HFCS is a recipe for looming disaster. Now we learn that HFCS is also tied to bee colony collapse. Mother nature gives us plenty of wonderful options when we need a ‘sweet fix’ and besides, from nature it’s all natural if you find the right raw organic GMO-free sources. From Science2.0:
Is the obesity epidemic due to the addictive qualities in food or that a lot more food is cheap and plentiful than ever before in history?
A paper presented at the 2013 Canadian Neuroscience Meeting, the annual meeting of the Canadian Association for Neuroscience – Association Canadienne des Neurosciences (CAN-ACN), says the problem is addiction rather than food wealth – the authors claim that high-fructose corn syrup can cause behavioral reactions in rats similar to those produced by drugs of abuse such as cocaine.  It’s the “Food Addiction” hypothesis that has recently become popular, which posits that we could be addicted to food just like drugs.
More about America’s deadly addiction below this new video with Citizens for Health interviewing Rohan Marley, son of Bob, who speaks about the dangers of HFCS, GMO’s and the Marley Beverage Company.
Surveys of consumption of cocaine show that though many individuals try these drugs, only a small percentage of them become addicted. Francesco Leri set out to show that the same could be true of “addictive foods”. “We have evidence in laboratory animals of a shared vulnerability to develop preferences for sweet foods and for cocaine” says Leri. Specifically, Leri wants to prove that high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is worse for us than table sugar.
Leri used rats to examine the behavioral, chemical and neurobiological changes induced by consumption of “addictive foods” containing HFCS. “We are not rats, but our children do not think too much about the impact of sweets on their brain and behaviour. There is now convincing neurobiological and behavioural evidence indicating that addiction to food is possible. Our primary objective is to discover biological predictors of vulnerability to develop excessive consumption of high fructose corn syrup ,” says Leri.
We’ve also recently learned that HFCS is believed to be connected to bee colony collapse.
