You mean the two current commericals about high fructose corn syrup, and what ever could be wrong with this product made from corn?

What could be wrong with it, besides...
  • replacing the nutrients in real fruit juice with empty calories?
  • "enhancing" foods that weren't terribly sweet naturally, so we all get a craving for sweeter and sweeter "enhanced" foods?
  • fattening up most of America??
Any thoughts? :eek:

How about some MSG (monosodium glutamate) and TRANSFAT? Of course, in moderation.
Unfortunately most of the people, believe in whatever TV delivers to them.

I love the ad featuring a number of cute kids dressed up as nutritious fruits & veggies, and then another child says "I'm high-fructose corn-syrup, and I'v been C h E m i C a L l Y a L t E r e D ".

Yes, I remember that ad. The glop was oozing off the side of the kid's costume. :eek:

Ed, you hit the nail on the head: Much of American convenience food is quite unhealthful. It's okay for a treat, but not every day. I wince when I see people in the grocery store with a cart-full of frozen pizza, boxed meals, "healhty" snacks like sugar-laden granola bars, and canned food ("Beef-a-roni"). That last one was my favorite when the parents went out on Saturday nights.
