People Who Eat Ketchup Are Being Warned By Doctors – Here’s What You Need To Know
In almost every household, there is ketchup in the fridge. This popular product is used in many meals. Some people put it in nearly everything they eat to spice up their food.
Have you ever wondered about the side effects of eating a lot of ketchup? If you read the label and its ingredients, most ketchup bottles have these listed:
- Tomato concentrates from red ripe tomatoes
- Distilled vinegar
- High-fructose corn syrup
- Corn syrup
- Onion powder
- Natural flavouring
If you read carefully, number 3 and 4 are the same thing – sugar!
Yes, both high-fructose corn syrup and corn syrup are just a different name for sugar.
The ingredients are listed from the highest amount to least amount that the product contains. So, the two sugars combined would make number 2 on the list. Mr. Eastcoastman did an experiment where he filled up an empty bottle of ketchup with the amount of sugar in it, and surprisingly he counted 33 tbsp. of sugar.
It’s recommended that women take no more than 6 teaspoons of sugar per day by the American Heart Association. Two tbsp. of Heinz ketchup have 2 teaspoons of sugar, meaning that ketchup alone would take up 1/3 of your daily recommended dose. Also, its sugar is made of GMO corn, which is even more harmful. All of this can also be read on the official Heinz website.
There have been a lot of discussions about how GMO food affects our health, and it had been proven that it’s connected to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. This also has chemicals with carcinogenic effects, which in turn can cause a lot of autoimmune disorders, acute toxicity, leaky gut syndrome, autism and more.
Around a decade ago, when bees brought the chemical back from the GMO crops to their hive, they experienced Colony Collapse Disorder. They died off before the new hives were formed. Also, newborn babies had problems with their memory and behavior when in contact with it.
Companies who manufacture products with these ingredients usually hide the full list of ingredients claiming they do it in order to hide them from their competition.
