In this video, Dr. Berg talks about table sugar versus high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). If it is sucrose, table sugar or pure sugar, it means it is beet sugar and not cane sugar which is cheaper and also a GMO. 95% of all the beet sugar in the US is GMO and allow up to 15mg/kg of glyphosate. HCFS is also GMO and is made up of corn.

High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
• Creates liver damage
• Consuming HFCS creates a similar effect when you consume alcohol
• Kids have the highest consumption of HFCS – 72g/day

Consuming a refined sugar, it pulls out the vitamins and nutrients could deplete you of the nutrients especially B vitamins to metabolize and breakdown to use that sugar and it also gives you a lot of oxidative stress. One of the symptoms you can develop from consuming too much refined sugar is a buildup of lactic acid and is called lactic acidosis.
