Finally! Yale study says high-fructose corn syrup is unhealty

For years now I’ve been waiting for someone to come out and affirm what many of us felt was true about HFCS. Even Consumer Reports would not come down on either side of the argument.

Finally, Yale University has released a study that we can use:

The study, conducted by Yale University School of Medicine, finds that fructose causes reactions in the human brain—such that one’s appetite is increased—convincing the body it needs to consume more food than it actually does.

High-fructose corn syrup, the almost ubiquitous sweetener found in packaged and processed foods in the US, and commonly labeled a leading cause of obesity in the country, contains a higher proportion of fructose than most other sweeteners including table sugar, which contains both fructose and glucose.

Such a sinister sweetener to make one think that they are still hungry. Just like antibiotics can do to cattle it seems. Our national food system is horribly perverted.
