    The fact that the corn refiners are willing to spend money on this campaign is proof positive that they're losing money as a result of the anti-HFCS press. This is a good sign.

    I can't believe that somebody actually got paid money to come up with the arguments that "it's made from corn" and "it's no worse than sugar". What's next, fortifying it with vitamins?

    Yeah. My favorite is when they say "what do they say?"... the person on the commercial goes blank... and I proceed to go through all the reasons HFCS and sugar are horrible for you. My daughter rolls her eyes at this point :-)

    Someone made a you tube take off on those commercials with all of the facts in it... can't remember who right now, though... I'll have to find it!

    It saddens me that "It's the same as sugar!" is considered a viable defense of HFCS. But then again, lots of people think that they are doing something healthy by drinking "Pepsi Throwback" or Mexican Coca-Cola made with real sugar; it's like a crackhead patting themselves on the back for doing cocaine instead.

    Those ads would be great if they showed the truth......overweight kids and obese parents.

    Don't worry about corn producers making money. We are subsidizing them to make ethanol from corn at roughly 3x the energy cost of using ethanol made from sugar cane.
