From ABC News comes the article: “Dr. Oz: Five Foods to Keep Off Your Grocery List.”
What’s number one? “Of the five foods I never want you to put in your food cart, the one I worry about the most is high fructose corn syrup,” said Dr. Oz.
I don’t need to go on a rant today. (To see where I stand on the issue, check out my post from last fall.) I just think it’s cool that one of the prominent voices from the medical community who is respected in mainstream media is on the same page as Michael Pollan–and anyone else who understands the problems with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
The other four foods Dr. Oz says we should avoid are:
- White foods containing simple carbohydrates, such as white rice, white pasta, and white bread
- Foods with artificial sweeteners
- High sodium foods (which are usually processed foods)
- Foods with ingredients on the label you don’t understand
