Listen, and understand. Monsanto is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are morbidly obese.

The obvious solution to this problem is to switch to Low Fructose Corn Syrup.

EvilEgg: Correlation is not causation

Oh hey, look! Someone said correlation is not causation. That means the two items can't possibly linked! We can all just close our browser windows and forget about this nonsense now.

So, having type-2 diabetes causes people to consume more HFCS?

Oh wait, we're assuming causation the other way, aren't we?

Magorn: Leeds: moothemagiccow: Magorn: Science says you are dead wrong, and nutritional science is anything but simple. Just like those idiots that bray abouthow counting calories is alway determinant of weight gain, or posit that all that is necessary to lose weight is to hit the gym, science has debunked all of you.

Holy hell do you sound fat

And Magorn's followup comment was: "As a morning treat, I'm currently snacking a piece of sugar free Russel-Stover's candy."

Good LORD. She can't even wait until after lunch before stuffing herself full of candy?

moothemagiccow- I think you call this one

I'm a he, rather than a she, I'm 6'2, currently about 250lbs or so , and for breakfast this morning I've had a Sugar free greek yougurt, for lunch I will be eating a protien bar, and dinner's going to be a salad with roasted chicken. I may also eat about 1/4 cup of almonds and peanuts before bed. If your sanctimonious ass thinks you could match me calorie for calorie, activity for activty, for a day, much less a week, I'd dare you to try.

And risk becoming a fatty like you? You can keep your morning candy hoard to yourself. And you can keep your 32.1 BMI too - I'm happier in the 20's.

Keep f*ckin' that HFCS chicken. Eating multiple times over the amount of simple carbohydrates that you should is going to result in diabetes. This isn't because of some mystical property of HFCS that has evaded chemists - it's because if you eat too many simple carbs in general you're going to develop insulin resistance. And yes, having a diet flooded with cheap simple carbs (which we have, thanks to HFCS) will have an increased rate of diabetes.

Get it right.

Countries with higher use of HFCS had an average prevalence of type 2 diabetes of 8 percent compared to 6.7 percent in countries not using HFCS.

"This research suggests that HFCS can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes

It doesn't suggest that at all.

said study co-author Professor Stanley Ulijaszek

Well that explains it then.

The rest of the article contains the same debunked crap about fructose that shows up in every "HFCS is evil" faux health article over the last 10 years.
