I've been using drupal for the first time to design a site fully from scratch (rather than just using a theme) and I'm both impressed and frustrated by it.

"Impressive and frustrating" should be the Drupal motto, and I say this as a guy who's largely happy with his two-year-old migration to the swiss army beast. (http://mgoblog.com) I'm hoping 7 hammers out 50% of the frustration -- seems like it should -- and am looking forward to the day nine months after its release when all my modules are ported.

+ - HFCS Rat Study Does Not Say What You Think It Says->

Submitted by Funkymoses
Funkymoses (215816) writes "There was a recent hubbub about a Princeton study that purported to show that rats fed high fructose corn syrup gained more weight than rats provided a similar diet that substituted table sugar. That study turns out to be riddled with errors in scientific method. The only statistically significant finding was a group of rats provided 12-hour access to HFCS along with regular chow got fatter than a group of rats given only chow. Rats given 12-hour access to sucrose actually gained more weight than rats given 24-hour access to HFCS in a study that claims "there was no overall difference in total caloric intake (sugar plus chow) among the sucrose group and two HFCS groups." There was no 24 hour sucrose group. Meanwhile, females given access to 12 hours of HFCS actually lost weight compared to chow-only and 12-hour sucrose groups.

Even longtime critics of the food industry like Marion Nestle find the study unconvincing; the findings are misleading and has been fraudulently presented by the media. It does not show anything approximating what it has been purported to show."

High Fructose Corn Syrup Causes Bigger Weight Gain In Rats 542

krou writes "In an experiment conducted by a Princeton University team, 'Rats with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained significantly more weight than those with access to table sugar, even when their overall caloric intake was the same.' Long-term consumption also 'led to abnormal increases in body fat, especially in the abdomen, and a rise in circulating blood fats called triglycerides.' Psychology professor Bart Hoebel commented that 'When rats are drinking high-fructose corn syrup at levels well below those in soda pop, they're becoming obese — every single one, across the board. Even when rats are fed a high-fat diet, you don't see this; they don't all gain extra weight.'"

If you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it.
