    Oh sure you can, sugar.
  • Table sugar is sucrose, which is half fructose, half glucose. High-fructose corn syrup is 55 percent fructose and 45 percent glucose.

    ZOMG!
  • Relatively Obscure: Table sugar is sucrose, which is half fructose, half glucose. High-fructose corn syrup is 55 percent fructose and 45 percent glucose.

    ZOMG!


    Wow, they actually said that.

    That's kinda misleading.  Should mention that sucrose is a distinct molecule of which the other two are parts.  Not some 50/50 mixture as opposed to 55/45.
  • FTFA: "Sugar may make the brain crave more food."

    Next you'll be telling me that salt can actually make you thirsty!

    Oops. Hit the add comment button by accident.

    What I meant to say was: Considering that the body breaks up sucrose into its components of glucose and fructose, what's the difference practically?
  • Not suck in every way besides being cheap and sweet?

    It's still broken down to Glucose and Fructose in the gut, before being taken up, however, so I think the point is somewhat valid. Fructose is still worse for you, and the ratio does make a difference.
  • absolutely true. i had to completely remove sugar from my diet for a time and went through hardcore heroin-esque withdrawals and cravings like a motherfarker.

  • "High-fructose corn syrup - is there nothing it can't do?"

    All right, this is how these things work. High-fructose corn syrup will be run out of town on a rail very soon. Same thing happened to bacon. "Oooh, so high in fat, clogs your arteries, stay away from it." Then it was brought back as the solution to everything. You could make clothes out it, put it in beer, use slices of bacon as bookmarks in your signed first editions of Hemingway. In a few decades HFCS will have speciality shops. There will be HFCS clubs, recipe books, snob threads in news aggregators. Grandmas will forward emails about how putting the stuff on somebody's third-degree burns can save their life. You get the idea.
  • But if obese people stop eating junk, won't somebody think of the impact on the healthcare industry and fast food manufacturers?!
    You are addicted to crap food - until you get your fat ass 'man vs food' attitude adjusted, and start cooking real food in sensible proportions, you are going to continue to die fat and early.
  • And Apples are nearly 66% fructose. Which by the logic this article uses that makes them worse than eating pure sugar.

    Hilarious. Gave you the "funny" vote. For me it was like that with the cigs. They were talking to me in dreams.

    You're lucky you quit when you did. I started off with oral ingestion but pretty soon that wasn't giving me enough of a rush so I started snorting confectioners sugar.

    Pretty soon I hit rock bottom hardcore, melting sugar and distilled water in a spoon and injecting it into my veins. By that time I wasn't even doing it for the sweetness, just to feel normal. In the end I was stealing sugar packets from Tim Horton's so that I could "caramelize" five times a day.

    My family got me the help I need and I'm now in a Stevia maintenance program.

  • FTA: Some nutrition experts say this sweetener may pose special risks, but others and the industry reject that claim. And doctors say we eat too much sugar in all forms.

    This article is so full of misleading statements that it could be used in lectures about propaganda and rhetoric as an example of blatant lying with a friendly face. This sentence, though, is by far the best example of multiple layers of misdirection I have seen in a non-politics article since the US election. This writer should be paid to sell gold on the Business tab.

    So funny, so true. HFCS will one day be the base material for a pork-pie hat, and shortly therefore the rusty creak you hear will be the final seal of the Apocalypse cracking asunder.

    Some states will reintroduce it, with a Medical HFCS card you can still purchase it from specialty shops. Still illegal under federal law, though.
