    HFCS was introduced in 1972 by Nixon to try and stabalize the food economy. They actually were poisening people and caused the obesity rate to skyrocket 25 years later.

    It's still processed like alcohol in the body. It's a toxin. Fiber will help and that is why there if fiber naturally with all natural form of fructose. However, if you read the labels at your local walmart, HFCS is in everything and there is no fiber included.

    Yeah I mean, if you eat corn and then take a shit, you will clearly notice that your body cannot fully process it.

    Has anyone wondered why we use high fructose corn syrup instead of cane sugar? It should seem strange to most of you that instead of extracting sugar from sugar cane, farmers instead grow corn for chemists to modify enzymatically. Shouldn't it be easier and cheaper to just grow sugar cane and eliminate the chemists? HFCS is so prevalent because of the economic subsidies the federal government gives to corn farmers. These subsidies lower the cost of corn and correspondingly HFCS. Without the subsidy, it would be cheaper to use regular sugar. The corn subsidy causes a cascade of effects in the agricultural industry. Cheap HFCS makes junk foods like donuts, cupcakes, and oreos cheaper to produce. Also, since most cows are fed corn, the cost of red meat is also reduced. It seems like the corn subsides make us less healthy overall.

    no, it's not cheaper. Everything comes down to money and efficiency and corn is much more efficient and accessible.

    well it comes from corn, i saw how they made it on history channel... the problem is hfcs strips away fiber in the process.... add metamucil or some fiber supp like phsyllum husks and its not as bad.... at that if you do a lot of cardio to burn it off. but if your a couch potato .... forget it

    im anti synthetic fat. (trans)
    im avoid-but-you-wont-die of animal saturated fat.
    im pro mct, long chain fats, and unprocessed unsat fats.

    Gotta love those bootstrappy farmers relying on government subsidies that stifle free market competition.
