It is baffling to me that anyone could have done any amount of reading with an open mind and come to the conclusion that context and dose do not make the poison in regards to HFCS because it is essentially the same thing as sugar.

Too much fructose is a bad thing. Too much is the part that Lustig doesn't talk about. Fructose is not only in HFCS, it is in sucrose. If your diet has too much sugar you're going to have a bad time. How much sugar is too much depends. It's called context. This is not complicated, at all. Where the experts disagree is in how much is too much. Only a few "experts" like Taubes go so far as to say any sugar is bad.
