High fructose corn syrup kills. Heck .. over sugaring of America in general kills. But High fructose corn syrup folks are insulting. Those stuuuuuuuuupid commercials ... 'get the facts' .... yeah ... I got the facts and understand just fine. High fructose corn syrup = BAD BAD BAD
Remember, however, that consumers do not have standing to sue under the Lanham Act; only competitors can bring a false advertising suit under federal law. Still, aggrieved consumers, such as Kasky, may find standing under state consumer protection statutes. What follows is a case that serves up an example of garden-variety, actionable, false advertising. It involved Coca-Cola, Tropicana and a 30 second TV commercial. As Tropicana’s spokesperson, former Olympian Bruce Jenner, appeared on screen squeezing an orange and said, “It’s pure, pasteurized juice as comes from the orange.” Then Jenner poured the freshly squeezed juice into a Tropicana carton and said, “It’s the only leading brand not made with concentrate and water.” The problem is that pasteurization requires temperatures of 200 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s one hot orange! Another problem was that Tropicana’s product was sometimes frozen prior to packaging. That’s one cold orange! Coke, the maker of Minute Maid orange juice, said the image of juice being squeezed straight from an orange into a Tropicana carton was misleading and sued Tropicana for false advertising. Although the district court denied relief, the appellate court reversed.

Its funny how the news and such on the tv keep on saying that hfcs is bad for our health, which I agree with. But heres the thing, they say its bad for us, and yet they keep on letting companies use it in our food. Doctors warn against hfcs, but the thing is, if its bad for us, shouldnt they have stopped putting it in our food completely? Just shows how dumbed down the people have become, even if something that is informal is shown on tv they still dont listen. Were also being desensitized into not caring about whats in our food, even though we should be caring considering the fact that WE eat it and it goes into OUR bodies and affects US.

I will tell you about my own experiment. I had a baby almost a year ago and I have always been pretty thin but I was having trouble losing the last 10 lbs. I decided to quit drinking pop and the weight fell off. It was easy.
QUIT DRINKING POP=LOSE A LOT OF WEIGHT
