(NaturalNews) Metabolism is the process that your body uses to make (or get) energy from the food that you eat, including carbohydrates, proteins and fats. In turn, your body's "fuel" can be used right away or stored in your tissues like your muscles, liver or body fat. Metabolic disturbances and disorders occur when abnormal chemical reactions disrupt the process of converting food into sugars and acids. Diabetes is a good example of a metabolic disorder where certain organs do not function normally anymore. Because most corn in America is genetically modified to kill corn "pests," no human on Earth should be eating it, especially every day. This is now being proven by scientists who run tests on animals in laboratories and have concluded that high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and sucrose can impair an adolescent animal's ability to learn, and it can impair its ability to remember information. And that brings us to the rat genome.

Human DNA is closer to that of rat's than cat's

Research presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior, also known as SSIB, reveals a difference between adult animals that consume HFCS-sweetened beverages and adolescent animals that consume the same. The amounts of HFCS used in the research were very similar to the amounts of GMO sugar found in common soft drinks. The study was conducted over one month. The lead author of the study said it's no secret that soft drinks can lead to not only metabolic disturbances but interference with the brain's ability to function normally and remember "critical information" about one's environment.

The rats that consumed these soft drinks in excess may be directly compared to humans, because a comparison of human DNA to 12 other animals shows that we are more closely related to rats than to cats! Stretches of DNA we call genes are part of definitive evidence that we are indeed closer to rodents than we are to felines. The same genes occur in both humans and rodents but were not even observed until about a decade ago. In fact, humans also suffer similar inflammation of the brain that controls learning and memory functions.

Dr. Scott Kanoski from the University of Southern California explained, "The hippocampus is such a critical brain region for memory function. In many ways this region is a canary in the coal mine, as it is particularly sensitive to insult by various environmental factors, including eating foods that are high in saturated fat and processed sugar."

Is HFCS the "new tobacco" or the "sweet thief of life"?

Many bees cannot find their honeycomb and simply die because they consume pesticides. Scientists are concluding from recent research that animals not too unlike humans are forgetting critical information about their environment when they consume modified sweetener. Maybe that's why the Bush and Obama Administrations subsidize it, because politics are married to Big Pharma, which is partnered with Big Food, and it's all part of a sick, money-generating machine.

If your child is suffering from memory loss, poor grades at school, confusion, depression, ADHD, ADD or even autism, take the child to a Naturopathic Physician and start asking vital questions about genetically modified corn and HFCS. You might just find the answers that you've been looking for since the problems first presented.
