Pepsi Says High Fructose Corn Syrup is Safe

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is nutrient-less junk; previously linked to both obesity and diabetes. And yet, the CRAZY The Corn Refiners Association claims HFCS is the same as sugar and safe in moderation. Yeah, because fat America understands moderation!

And since when is sugar okay! Dr. Fuhrman associates ALL sweeteners—like refined sugar, honey, lactose, fruit juice concentrate, high fructose corn syrup and molasses—with disease. They have no significant nutrient-density!

To make matters worse, despite being a processed food, the FDA recently ruled that high fructose corn syrup is natural. And now, a study with industry ties to Pepsico, suggests NO link between HFCS and obesity, calling all contrary evidence speculation; CBS News reports.

I’m sorry, but research with BLATANT industry ties, promoting a dangerous, but low-cost ingredient has NO credence in my book!

That's awesome! This is like when I posted about Coca-Cola saying that Coke is hydrating.

Sugar tastes better the HFCS, so I'll stick with sugar thank you. Eat fruit several times a day and have some fruit juice diluted with water (or seltzer) and you'll find a dramatic decrease in your sweet tooth.

Maybe that's why the bees are dying. Honey bees are now fed with corn syrup. Google "pollen substitute".

They also say that Pepsi is safe. You know where it's coming from. Safe for whom from what?

Reactive Carbonyls appear to be the smoking gun for HFCS in soda causing Diabetes, coronary atery and Kidney failure.
