Mercury- Yet another reason to avoid high-fructose corn syrup!

In case you weren't already avoiding this harmful sugar in the foods that you serve your family, here's some great motivation to work towards doing so.

Small Notebook just put up an excellent post, detailing the mercury that has been discovered in quite a list of foods containing high-fructose corn syrup (such as granola bars, yogurt, ketchup, jelly and jam, juice and pops, canned soups and many more).

That's right, folks, more mercury!

For much more information on where the mercury comes from and some great links (including one to a detailed list of the foods found to contain mercury), make sure you read the full post.

Whole foods win again.

Are you or your family struggling with health challenges? Is it time to make some changes? Maybe you already know that you WANT to do things differently in your home -- use better products, buy real, wholesome foods, prepare more from-scratch meals, even use home remedies instead of medication when you're sick. But do you have all the tools you need to make it happen?

That's why we created the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle. We spent months searching for the very best, most practical healthy living resources we could find, like real food recipes (we have some for gluten & grain free, too), DIY tutorials for home and beauty, solid nutrition information, home remedies, essential oil courses and books, workouts for moms, meal planning help and more. The entire package is worth over $1000, but our whole goal is to make it totally affordable for anyone. At just $30, it's cheaper than a doctor's visit, filling a prescription, or even eating dinner as a family out at a restaurant!

To make it more of a no-brainer, we partnered up with 10 natural living sponsors who are offering you over $200 in free bonuses that you can redeem, just because you bought a bundle. And to say a special "thank you!" to my readers who buy through this site, I've got an extra special webinar that I want to invite you to.

The one catch? It's available for just a few more hours! It should have already ended, but since so many awesome readers tried to grab it yesterday and our site crashed for a little bit, we're extending it and giving you just until Tuesday at 12:00 noon PST (3pm EST), Sept.16th. So you don't to wait! Click here to learn more about what's in this year's phenomenal package and then pick one up for yourself. You'll be glad you did!

  1. Stephanie, thanks so much for sharing this link. I appreciate it!

  2. Wow! That was very interesting. Thanks for forwarding the article on to us. Thank heaven for whole foods!

  3. Yes, it has to have HFCS. It’s the process that some of the companies are using (but not all companies), so go through the link to the post at Small Notebook, where you can read the list of the actual foods and brands that were found to contain the mercury. It’s definitely not in every ketchup or every granola bar!

  4. Interesting. Does a food have to have HFCS in the ingredients to contain it? We still use ketchup occasionally that does not list that as an ingredient. I have yet to find a recipe/product for ketchup that my family likes so we just limit it for now.

  5. Check out this interesting article about High Fructose Corn Syrup and the misconceptions about the appearance of Mercury in it. You can read it here: as well as, this video that debunks the recent study released in the IATP report and Environmental Health article. You can view it here:
