    Shouldn't High Fructose Corn Syrup Be Banned
    LilyThompson posted:
    Knowing about all the ill effects of high fructose corn syrup and how it can potentially cause diabetes should we not be concerned that it is present in 80-90% of the foods which we purchase from the market. Would it also not be able to explain the great instances of obesity in our country. It is concerning that people have not moved to ban it completely. Weight gain is highly associated with the intake of HFCS as well.
