has anyone been watching the commercial on tv with the two brothers who are talking about high fructose corn syrup. it’s so carefully worded it makes me steam…
brother 1: “even a dufous like you must have heard what they say about it!”
brother 2: “what? that it’s nutritionally the same as sugar? and it’s just fine in moderation?”
“nutritionally the same as sugar” is the part that really gets me. it’s not really lying, but it’s comparing it to another horrible food that people are just a little more familiar with.
plus, if you are eating food with HFCS to begin with, there’s no way you are getting it in moderation. it’s in EVERYTHING!
on the positive side, it shows that people are concerned enough about their health, that the corn industry would feel the need to defend itself.
