NO to High Fructose Corn Syrup!

High Fructose Corn syrup (HFCS) is easily found in soft drinks and fruit juices. It makes us fat and has no nutritive value. Please avoid any food/drinks with HFCS. I would avoid all processed foods even if it says "corn syrup" because it may be "high fructose corn syrup."

I know about high-fructose corn syrup in sodas and most juice drinks. I have recently found it in cereals (including all those "good-for-you cereals like corn flakes, Special K, and Mini-Wheats), catsups, tomato soups, PICKLES (yes, pickles), diet bars of all kinds, pasta sauces, many crackers (like those Wheat Thins and Ritz, as well as generic equivalents), sweetened nuts, and so many other foods. Between this and the MSG hidden in foods, it's no wonder that we are all becoming big fat tubs of lard. The "food(?)" is designed to make you fat.

Because of the unusually long shelf life of HFCS, store-bought cakes, cookies, brownies, mixes, breads, sodas, juices, tomato sauce and all of the rest could be sold with practically no expiration date.
