Fructose is in a lot more than just corn syrup, folks.
Fructose or Fruit Sugar(also levulose or laevulose) is a simple monosaccharide found in many foods and is one of the three important dietary monosaccharides along with glucose and galactose. The organic fructose molecule was first discovered by Augustin-Pierre Dubrunfaut in 1847. Fructose is a white solid that dissolves in water – it is the most water-soluble of all the sugars. Honey, tree fruits, berries, melons, and some root vegetables contain significant amounts of molecular fructose, usually in combination with glucose, stored in the form of sucrose. About 240,000 tonnes of crystalline fructose are produced annually.
Fructose is a component of sucrose. Sucrose is a disaccharide derived from the condensation of glucose and fructose. Fructose is derived from the digestion of table sugar (sucrose).

I think I disagree with this and call BUNK!!!! Because one, it's a natural byproduct of corn which is wholly organic, it is true that everything natural in moderation cannot and will not harm anyone!!!!

What a load of S****~~!!!

Now, you do realize that fructose is not a "byproduct" of corn manufacturing? It's a sugar that is naturally found in corn as well as fruits and vegetables. You are attempting to mislead everyone who reads this into thinking corn consumption stimulates the growth of pancreatic cancer - not true. Fructose is one of the component monosaccharides found in sucrose. Anytime sucrose is metabolized by the human digestive system, fructose and glucose are the resulting metabolites. So, you could say that simply being human stimulates pancreatic cancer-growth and partly be correct. However, YOU ARE WRONG.

I don't really understand why they use corns when they can have "real" sugar with beets. It's what we do in europe, beet sugar.
