Let me guess, this research was funded by the corporations that have a vested interest in poisoning our food with the alternatives such as aspartame.

Also, since the brain uses glucose and HCFS is a mixture of glucose and fructose monosaccharides..

very evil plan...

From plant sources, fructose is found in honey, tree and vine fruits, flowers, berries and most root vegetables.

High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a mixture of glucose and fructose as monosaccharides.

That's wikipedia right there so you know it's true.

So, back on topic...

1 - Brain needs glucose to work
2 - HCFS is a mix of glucose and fructose
3 - Fructose comes from all that $#!& you hippies tell us to eat

Doesn't that make YOU stupid?

You saw that commercial and believed it too huh?
Hint: they lied.

This is a loooong vid but well worth the watch as it explains things in a molecular way but is still very understandable.
I will tell you, I am a diabetic and use NO, NONE, NADA , ZILCH High Fructose Corn Syrup in my diet.
I started looking at boxes, bags and cans and here in the US HFCS is hard to avoid, I eat almost NOTHING out of a box, bag, can, Etc. nowadays.
Ninety nine percent of the foods I eat come from scratch recipe's (lemme tell ya, homemade mac and cheese is faaaar superior to that box crap.)
I still eat sweets and I will tell you that my blood sugar is much more manageable now that I have cut out HFCS, it truly is poison to me and any other diabetic.
Another hint: the diabetes "epidemic" started roughly 35ish years ago, if you do not understand why, see my above post.
Why is everyone we know going diabetic?

Well this is certainly a compelling argument for abstaining from HCFS in order to avoid a drop in intelligence.

I am going to drop out, tune in to YouTube and drink Diet Coke from now on.

I feel smarter already.

HFCS is utter POISON. I'm heavily into physical fitness, when not sweating my physical comp, adding even the slightest amounts of HFCS fat instantly adds weight in fat lbs to my body. Which is great during the winter as I look fuller, but come the warmer months there is no HFCS in me.

My simple carbs now come from brown sugar. Those true sugar carbs are converted to glycogen before fat and with the spring/summer diet, which fuels my muscles but I'm not putting fat lbs on at all.

HFCS is POISON, no matter what the American Corn Council tells you.

Has anybody been paying attention to the story arc on a show called "Supernatural"?

The villains ate humans and basically wanted to turn them into mindless cattle. So they ran this company called "Sucrocorp", which distributed corn syrup, and basically poisoned 90% of the food, making humans stupid and lethargic.

I'm like, "when did this show turn into a documentary?"
