The Corn Refiners are holding their position that corn syrup is the same as sugar with all sorts of pretty benefits like brown bread and brown soft drinks.  Of course this brown stuff is what keeps them ‘in the black’.  But one politician recently called high-fructose corn syrup, the “crack of sweetners”.

Dr. Barry Popkin, professor of nutrition at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill is quoted saying:

“We really should be studying it more. … They don’t like to study adverse effects.  If we thought HFCS had huge benefits, if it prevented cancer, then we’d be studying it.”
