I apologize in advance if this is the wrong venue to publish what I'm trying to achieve through several social networking resources.
My personal blog is www.iconveyawareness.com
where I talk about health, nutrition, wellness, green, holistic etc... as my family transitions from the life of of prepackaged, convenience items to a life of maker smarter food and product choices.
I've been following the latest and somewhat controversial topic of High Fructose Corn Syrup and my personal belief is that it is a contributor to many sicknesses and health factors specifically weight gain.
I have created a fan page on Facebook called "The HFCS-Free Challenge" and I would like to invite you to become a fan and join the challenge if you wish.
The challenge starts April 19th through May 31st, 2010 (6 weeks) of choosing consumables that do not have HFCS on the label. I encourage you to post pictures of foods that have HFCS that you've been used to eating and what products you are now eating that do not have HFCS in them.
Note: I am only asking you to control what it is your bring into your home. I know you cannot control what you eat at someone else's house or better yet, what you eat when you go to eat.
I would like to bring further awareness about this topic - HFCS. If anyone wants to jump on my band wagon, I welcome you.
All those wishing to become a fan of the page AND participate in the challenge, I am asking for your permission to document our findings on my personal blog. No personal identifiable information will be used. Your privacy is of utmost importance. Fake names will be used.
Please read the discussion board once you become a fan.
Again you do not have to participate in the challenge, you can just become a fan to be in the know about the latest findings.
