The high fructose corn syrup industry has petitioned for a name change. Lipstick on a pig. It hasn't passed yet but it seems that it may. They claim it's to alleviate confusion, but really it's because HFCS has gotten so much bad press, with good reason. It causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. It may have mercury in it. It's generally bad bad BAD for you, empty calories, even cheaper for the manufacturer than real cane sugar. So watch for "corn sugar".

Thanks for the warning. Typical response from an amoral industry.

Yup, lipstick on a pig. I think Sara Pallin went nuts when she thought this was being said about her, but it certainly does fit with the corn syrup industry. And what about their stupid commercials saying corn syrup was fine "in moderation." Right.

I bet they'd say that mouse turds, arsenic and mold are also just fine "in moderation". Can't believe a thing they say.
