This video open my eyes to high fructose corn syrup, however blaming the obesity epidemic to this ingredient is an exaggeration. I believe that high fructose corn syrup is a risk factor and contributes to obesity but, it is only one factor and should be regarded as that. Consuming too much fats, carbohydrates and living a sedimentary lifestyle are all contributing factors, and now new research shows that there may be a genetic link to obesity, we have another risk factor. The one thing that intrigue me was high fructose corn syrup suppresses the hormone leptin, the hormorne that surpresses appetite. I did observed with my own self since I came to the united states, I eat more processed food that contains high fructose corn syrup and after a meal I still feel hunger although I am full. I always think to myself why is the message not being sent to my brain that I am full. Could it be high fructose corn syrup?
