Are you KIDDING ME?!

Apparently big corn is having problems because more and more people don't want to eat High Fructose corn syrup. "Its fine in moderation" they say. Well, maybe.... But HCFS is void of any nutrients aside from calories, unlike Honey, maple syrup, agave nectar and dehydrated cane juice. It is absorbed into your blood stream very quickly, and causes spikes in blood sugar.

But beyond that it is everywhere. Most Americans eat quite a bit of processed foods, and almost all processed foods have HCFS in it. So if you are eating the Standard American Diet, moderation of HCFS isn't really an option.

I've had the same reactions to those stupid commericials. I just kind of gawk open-mouthed at the TV going "seriously?"

sheesh. the sad part is most people will now go "oh. ok. it's good for you."

oh dear. how pathetic. these commercials are so bad that I first thought they were spoofs from SNL.
"It's corn, silly!" can't get over how stupid they are...
