Anyone else seen these commercials? They make my head hurt.

If I ever write a hate letter it will be to the "Corn Refiners Association"

Promoting high fructose corn syrup?

It's a hell of a strategy - making people feel like dumb assholes for being concerned with their health.

That's what I was thinking when I saw it on TV....wow...shame on us for trying to not have artificial sweeteners.....I mean, why not say for every donut we don't buy, we kill a kid in Africa or something......we are just selfish selfish people, what about the stockholders of major corn corporations...or the people on the board at Kellogs...how are they going to tell their kids that they had to trade in the Mercedes for a Minivan....Oh the horror....because apparently, like sugar, it's ok in moderation....who says that in real life?

We must protect ourselves, because no corporation or other financial interest will do it for us...

I am posting this link anywhere these ads get mentioned...really great interview with a man with a brain (and ethics).

i bet corn syrup would make a good industrial adhesive.....a little toulene to get it to flow and some sort of a hardener....

I can see it now...corn husk carbon fiber!!!
