High Fructose Corn Syrup

Two posts in June and May. Awesome.

Anyway, this is something that really bothers me. It’s not technically false advertising to call high fructose corn syrup a sugar, but it takes advantage of the innate stupidity of most humans by conveniently omitting details like ‘the extraction process is very inefficient!’ or ‘every time you use this, a kitten dies!’ (I think I’m making these ones up, but you never know).

The facts in the comic itself are real facts. I got them from…crap, I can’t remember the book now. It might have been ‘The End of Food.’
