Have you all seen these commercials? I will assume so, because I’ve seen them and I don’t even own a television. The funny thing about them, beyond the obvious falsehood behind their claim that it, like sugar, is good in moderation, is their attempt to make a health conscious consumer and mother look like a fool.
Well. Then came this lovely bit of news: the FDA and HFCS manufacturers have known for some time that mercury is present in HFCS due to the intricate method of manufacture. Oh, and another big shocker? The Corn Refiner’s Association is challenging the study’s conclusions. Did we really expect anything different? Sorry, HFCS apologetics lady, but Mercury, a neurotoxin, is not good in moderation.
