wow, crazy you brought this up,,,,,i can drink tons of mt dew a day and everyone is telling me,,,and i have learned just how bad the high fructose
corn syrup is,,,,and it's even in the so called healthy drinks and what they want to brand as "better alternatives" to soda.
i am reading ron pauls book, a manifesto,,,,,and he talks of this exact issue. sugar should be cheap as dirt,,,, but because of a subsidcy to help a
few,,, we all are penalized and there this is why hfcs is used over sugar,,,,because of helping a few we all pay $10-!5 dollars more for sugar a
year,,,and pay the price thu use of hfcs over sugar.
there are limits and taxes on inported sugar apparently making it to expensive to use
our worthless gov't, subsidies, and welfare state hard at work,,,, of course the use of HFCS will help more people get diabetes and help big pharma
and the health care machine,,,go big govt, & corp america,,,,screw the citizens,,,money,money, money
sometimes it really gets me,,,,,in many ways we are so screwed up and backwards,,,,it's not even laughable anymore ,,,,it is really sad
always enjoy your posts,,, hadn't seen u in a whuile
