HFCS looks to change it’s image

The Corn Refiners Association recently applied to the Federal Government to change the name “high fructose corn syrup” to “corn sugar”. Now why would they want to do that? They say it’s to help clarify things for consumers, but maybe this research has something to do with it.

    I think there is enough problems with a lowered immunity with americans and our S.A.D ( standard american diet ). Almost everything we eat in our S.A.D is loaded with sugan, sugar,sugar.
    Sugar supresses the immune system, and by doing so leaves us open to disease. We love sugar ( it’s addictive ), and we love our antibiotics. so between HFCS ( sugar ) and antibiotics it’s no wonder that we are 47th in health in developed nations but spend more on health care, it’s no wonder that we are only five percent of the worlds population , but use 70 percent of the worlds prescription drugs. The HFCS association want to change it’s image and keep making the money and it doesen’t matter if it’s over your dead body.
    Do a Google search on the benefits of HFCS and you will find none that benefit your body, but on the other hand do a negative search and you won’t have enough paper to print it
