Eat High Fructose Corn Syrup? Don't forget to take your fish oil...

A bit of a dry article this one (it's from the journal of the American Diabetes association), so let's sum it up...

If you're eating a diet high in fructose - particularly high fructose corn syrup - which means pretty much everyone in the United States...

... take your fish oil.

It'll reduce your triglyceride levels. It's about the best you can do unless you entirely want to avoid processed foods, until the food companies stop using High Fructose Corn Syrup in their products.

I can highly recommend reading the article if you can skim through the scientific jargon. Or understand it ;-)

(from wikipedia: in the human body, high levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream have been linked to atherosclerosis, and, by extension, the risk of heart disease and stroke)
