I am seeding this because of the recent article, Judge: Lawsuit over 'corn sugar' can go forward. In the article it is stated that:
" lawyers for the corn industry arguing for the dismissal said sugar and high fructose corn syrup are equivalent in how they are metabolized by the body."
My comment refers to this article and study:
This is not true. Completely wrong!!! My links above contain the explanation. Here is an excerpt from one article...
"Compared to animals eating only rat chow, rats on a diet rich in high-fructose corn syrup showed characteristic signs of a dangerous condition known in humans as the metabolic syndrome, including abnormal weight gain, significant increases in circulating triglycerides and augmented fat deposition, especially visceral fat around the belly. Male rats in particular ballooned in size: Animals with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained 48 percent more weight than those eating a normal diet. In humans, this would be equivalent to a 200-pound man gaining 96 pounds."
Because this issue is up again in current events I felt it would be important to make this point and to inform more people about the dangers of corn syrup.
