Another Reason to Avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup

This article link about mercury in high fructose corn syrup is from the beginning of the year - January 2009, but is nevertheless important: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/01/26/AR2009012601831.html?

It is interesting to note that in Canada and Europe, and actually I suspect all countries except the United States, high fructose corn syrup is not used in sodas and other products. It is pretty much exclusively a U.S. product and ingredient.

For those with an hour to spare, I recommend the humorous and educational film, King Korn.

And remember to read those labels - it is astounding what high fructose corn syrup turns up in.
