I agree with this. Except that about 3 years ago I found myself sitting in my doctor's office hearing for the umpteenth time how high my cholesterol was, how high my triglycerides were, that my CRP was troubling and that if it wasn't for my ratios being okay, he was going to probably put me on statins in a few years. He said, "You probably eat a lot of red meat and fast food, huh." I said I hadn't eaten in a fast food restaurant for as long as I could remember and that I ate red meat probably less than once every 6 months, and that I ate meatless meals most of the time. Soda never came up, but I haven't been able to drink soda with HFCS in it ever since they invented HFCS.
