So the FDA this morning announced that they have found mercury in High Fructose Corn Syrup. One of the agents has said for years that they have been finding levels of mercury in the stuff. If you saw my post yesterday you know it has been years since I have purchased food with HFCS. This news also got me thinking.
Is there a connection with the high rates of Autism in this country and processed foods with HFCS?! Mercury is used as a perservative in innoculations. This is what every one is blamming for their kids getting autism. What if the introduction to processed foods combined with the innoculations increases the mercury enough in our childrens small bodies that it triggers autism? It is also strange that the rate of Autism has increased in the last 10-20 years. I know that there were not a lot of processed food in the 60 and 70's (at least not in my house) A little food for thought this evening.
