That's some interesting stuff here. Thanks for the information. I was clueless about HFCS, and I'm from the corn belt. I also work in the
agricultural industry...so I guess I'm part of the problem, not the solution, huh? Gotta love ATS!
Being conspiracy minded myself, I can see how, in the big picture, some could see a grand plan by big corporations, the ag industry, pharmaceutical
co's, etc...to reap huge profits at the expense of America's health. Although, I do agree most decisions by most entities are economic, I can't
swallow that, in this instance, it is done with malicious intent, and part of a huge conspiracy. But, who knows, and who could ever truly find out?
Then again, EVERYthing has a side-effect, and hopefully, HFCS, if it is so bad...will be "discovered", with credible research, and eliminated from
the food chain.
Remember, DDT was the single best remedy for mosquitos, handed out to our troops in World War 2. It was used because it was cheap, and extremely
effective. Well, it then took some time to discover its' evils and get it elimanted from the food chain. If I'm not mistaken, it's still used
in some countries for the same reasons.
