High Fructose Corn Syrup
When it comes to Science reporting on Youtube, my two favorites are C0nc0rdance and Potholer54 - here’s something new from C.
Let’s get the facts straight about the nutritive sweeteners (sugars). I will not defend HFCS; it is just as bad as sucrose or honey or fruit juice. It may even be ever so slightly worse for the following reasons:
1. Industry like to use it.
2. It’s a bit cheaper, thanks to US corn policies.
3. We love to eat it.
but the root of the problem is the collision of our biology (we love sweetness) and our economic system (companies will sell what we will buy). What’s needed is some self-awareness, some discipline, and some education about health risks.
That’s my goal with this video. I’m not here to point the finger of blame. I’m not here to offer scare tactics or corporate apologetics. These are the facts, as well as my take on the issue.
I’m sure I made at least one factual error (not counting my backwards swastikas). First one to spot it will get a $5 donation to MSF made in their name.
