In his 3rd Question of Nutrition Article by Dr. Jonny Bowden he touches on the HFCS commercials:

Quote:
The Corn Refiners Association's pro-HFCS ads make two arguments:

• It's no worse than sugar. Okay, maybe, but that's like saying Salems are no worse than Marlboros.

• It's natural because it's made from corn. Maybe so, but so is ethanol, and I'm not drinking that either.

When I saw this, I though it was a CFS (chicken fried steak) thread. I'm disappointed.

PS Corn is the devil.

I was read this article (interesting read btw) and came across this nice.. or disgusting little tidbit:
http://www.the-scientist.com/2008/12/1/18/1/

Quote:
Carnivores show high levels of nitrogen-15, which correlates with their high place in the food chain, since the isotope tends to collect in animal tissue, and therefore increases in meat-lovers. The worms Macko discovered were steeped in sulfur-35, like other creatures that feed on sulfide-eating bacteria. Macko can even distinguish between rice and wheat-eaters from those who eat corn (thanks to the different enzymes with which crops turn sunlight into sugar, corn shows higher percentages of carbon-13). Macko's dietary sleuthing culminated last year in an appearance in "King Corn," a documentary about America's corn dependency. Using hair samples, Macko found that 65% of America's nutrition comes from subsidized corn agriculture.
Corn is pretty pervasive, heh.

The Food and Drug Administration stated, referring to a process commonly used by the corn refining industry, that it "would not object to the use of the term ‘natural’ on a product containing the HFCS produced by [that] manufacturing process...."
The FDA didn't object to it, so it is true!

A new article, with no real new reasons but some interesting points nonetheless.

From the article:

Quote:
Let me ask you this: where in nature could our hunter-gatherer ancestors quickly guzzle down 100 grams of sugar? You guessed it, nowhere. It just ain't natural. It astounds me that the human body can even deal with a Super Big Gulp. And actually, it doesn't deal with it very well.
Kinda funny seeing this on T-Nation, a site where whoring out refined sugar and artificial sweetener laden products is second to none. Interesting read nonetheless.
