Here. Another article about food. I particularly like how the article points out that HFCS is not bad but, it's the amount we consume that is. (might I add, DUH) Though, I have to disagree (only a little) with this portion of the article because I think HFCS is much more dangerous than sugar because it is put into more products than any other sweetener and it's products that we don't always associate with sugar either like Ketchup, dressings, spaghetti sauce, and canned soups. Even if you didn't consume one sweet in the day, you may very well have reached your max on sugar without even knowing it so I think that HFCS is a bad, sneaky little booger. Read the labels, I know I know but, how would you know when an ingredient is really a HFCS in disguise? I read that chicory, inulin, iso glucose, glucose-fructose syrup, and fruit fructose are all names that equal HFCS, go figure!
