Lately I've seen a few articles in the paper (Washington Post; Washington Times) about high fructose corn syrup and how the "obesity epidemic" has corresponded with its increased use by manufacturers. Well, duh!! (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/mad.gif) The articles traced HFCS's use and increased use through the 80s and 90s and featured graphs of adults' average weight. Now I can don't know about y'all, but finding HFCS in everything is a particular pet peeve of mine! (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/mad.gif) From what I've read in the first ed of the SB book, it shoots your blood sugar through the roof. I'm posting this because I thought y'all would be interested in the fact that researchers, nutritionists, et al, are beginning to take a long hard look at this ubiquitous sweetner.
