A recent article in Natural News gives research evidence showing that High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) has been contaminated with the highly toxic compound Mercury. HCFS is prevalent in most convenience foods (and more) such as cookies, candy, soda, fruit juice, salad dressings, and much much more.
"The highest level of contamination found in the study (http://www.ehjournal.net/content/8/1/2) was 0.57 micrograms of mercury per gram of HFCS. The EPA says that an average-sized woman should consume no more than 5.5 micrograms per day of mercury, meaning that the average American consumer may be eating five times the upper safety limit of mercury every day due to high-fructose corn syrup consumption if they consume the foods tested in the study."
