Stay away from fructose!

According to, fructose is an "inexpensive sweetener used in many processed foods and drinks and is most frequently found in its super-charged form, high fructose corn syrup." Fructose has also been linked to many types of cancer.

Fructose is widely thought to be responsible for the dramatic rise in obesity over the past several decades. Aside from preventing cancer, cutting fructose out of your diet will help you maintain a healthy weight, as well as reduce your risk of diabetes.

The real challenge lies in avoiding fructose. It is added to nearly all soft drinks and processed foods. Label checking never hurts, but in general, the surest way to avoid fructose is to eat organic produce and other non-processed foods.
