This study is flawed and misinterpret. Its actually spoons and forks that cause obesity.

This corn-syrup battle has been going on for decades and some how had the truth suppressed about the differences in the sugars which is very real and very much a health risk. From the 1950's science new and reported the differences but secret infighting, falsifying information and lobbying with misinformation is getting to be a health hazard.

The only use for corn syrup is making substitute caramel candy and marshmallows. Soda pop is the worst offender and its readily noticed the difference in corn suyrup drinks and sugar drinks.

Corn syrup should be stripped as an equal to sugar, never has been and never will be and science, chefs, and the human body has supported that fact for dozens of decades. Some economist had a surplus of corn syrup and the only way to exploit its use was the change the laws of science which was flimsy at best.

@My2Cents--it would be helpful if you provided some documentation for your statements, or at the very least, of your own credentials. I'm well aware of the power of the various agri-giants and their well-funded lobby, and at a gut level your comments make sense, but I would really like to see the ground-level research supporting your claims. Often when I mention the dangers of HFCS, those concerns get pooh-poohed by those who've swallowed the food industry story.
