Default Mercury and high fructose corn syrup

A friend just e-mailed me an article saying that researchers studying Alzheimer's looked at high fructose corn syrup in a number of products and found that a significant number of them contained mercury. You can read about it here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...012601831.html.

Something to think about, I guess.

Mandalinn posted about this in the Whole Foods forum not too long ago:

Need another reason to avoid HFCS? How about mercury?
