JohnP you misconstrued my context comment somewhat. First to admit overall sweetener consumption is key. But i continue to think there is much more to the context of HFCS than just 55% or often 60% plus fructose. To you it seems that is all, to me it is a Franken-sweetener until proven otherwise.

I think you will have to leave it at that. Some people (like me) don't need a lot of proof or too many studies to convince me that chemically manufactured goods aren't good for me. Other people need a lot of proof. Like I was saying, it's not necessary to convince others, as long as you can convince your family then you've done a lot of good in the world.

Everything in moderation. I can eat foods containing HFCS and get fat, I can still eat HFCS and get thin. All depends on calories and portion control.

I don't disagree with you. I merely think that mercury contamination and greater than 55% concentration in HFCS are a seperate conversation which is why I haven't been addressing them. No question - if manufacturers of HFCS are contaminating the product with mercury or going over the max allowed fructose content they should be punished/penalized or shut down.

To be clear - when I say context I mean that in the sense of the individual. Two extreme examples would be Kaplods for whom even a small amount of sugar is bad - on the other end would be a bodybuilder doing a carb load and might consume 150g of sugar in a day.

That is true. I am on the more carb reactive side. I have a co-worker who eats I am not kidding a half dozen donuts daily and mass fast food. He is in his 50s. Not sure how healthy he is but he has a flat stomach and is not overweight.

But for most people and probably him (he goes to doctors a lot so not exactly healthy) as well carbs are a huge health burden. And HFCS adds more unknowns.

Just noticed cautionary notes about hfcs on the 3 Fat Chicks Home page -- ie, avoid HFCS!
