Gary Taubes writes: "When I interviewed Peter Havel and Kimber Stanhope at U.C. Davis about the study they're doing on sugar and high fructose corn syrup they told me a relevant story, which is that the last time they studied glucose vs. fructose in older Americans, they wanted to pick people who didn't consume a lot of sugar-sweetened beverages. So they had to reject a lot of their applicants because they consumed more than one sugar-sweetened beverage a day. But they still had enough to do the study. When they moved on to the sucrose/HFCS study they're doing now and we're studying younger subjects – under 40 – they had trouble finding any to fit the criteria. "We had to change the criteria," Havel told me, "because we couldn't find anybody that was consuming that. It was very difficult to find anyone consuming less than two. We were asking them how many, and people were going `six'." So what they did was do what's called a washout period before starting the study, bring in the subjects, getting them off ssb's for two weeks, and then feeding them back.
