Real News. Real Funny.
Therion: Is the Obvious tag not working?
EvilEgg: Correlation is not causation
HakunaMatata: New study finds that countries that use a lot of KFCS have more type 2 diabetics than countries that don't use as much KFCS
Kazan: Listen, and understand. Monsanto is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are morbidly obese.
mr_a: I'll wager that countries that have a lot of doctors have more reported cases of diabetes as well, as do countries with more doctors, lawyers and maybe even Indian Chiefs.
Shyla: But.... "Sugar is sugar!"
Metalithic: I suspect the problem is too much over-sweetened junk food and too many calories, not HFCS specifically. Granted, corn syrup may be the worst offender, but good old-fashioned sugar or honey can cause just as much trouble if you eat it by the tub-full, and just about any source of excess calories will cause health problems eventually. Fruit also has fructose, but no-one is concerned about fruit intake because it is much harder to eat too much fruit than it is too drink too much soda or eat too many Twinkies.
