Here is an article that is interesting reading and reinforces the claim that cane sugar is better than HFCS regardless of the cost. Perhaps we need some government legislation against HFCS or a lift of tariffs on imported sugar.

I have stated numerous times on this board that HFCS is crap and Coke and Pepsi should make their product better and use REAL CANE SUGAR! A company that is not willing to make its product better just to improve the bottom line by a few bucks is a shame. Imagine Dell still selling 286k computers????

Unfortunately, the overconsumption of all types of sugar (no matter how "high quality") will eventually lead to diabetes...

Overconsumption of anything is bad..... too much water is called drowning!

The point is Real Sugar is better than HFCS anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

The fact that children consume this garbage should have any beverage maker reevaluating what they are doing.
