You do realize that HFCS is simply independent molecules of glucose and fructose, sugars we freely absorb in the first place? Thinking that HFCS is some sort of magical processed sugar that the body has no idea how to utilize is just ridiculous and shows a complete lack of knowledge of basic chemistry and biology.

The only real test that has shown significant differences between HFCS and sucrose is the Princeton study with rats, where they tried to show that the rats on HFCS gained more weight. Problem is that the study was done by a bunch of idiots and was executed very poorly.

It's hilarious that you linked the Taubes video as your source of information, and yet you're trying to argue that HFCS is any different from from sucrose. Go watch your video again. Beginning at 18m 20s. He explains very CLEARLY that the HFCS vs sucrose issue is a complete non-issue. That's his own words: "non-issue". "They are the same". If you're going to quote Taubes, know what he's saying first.

Comment: Let's just forget about the big bottleneck here... (Score 1) 360 360

Do people even give a crap about how one browser renders a page 0.0001 seconds faster than another? I mean, we still have a huge honking bottleneck here (internet speeds), so it's not like render speeds is that much of a factor at all when viewing a page.

"Juries are often justified because they leaven the law with community norms.[11] Occasionally, if jurors find the law to be invalid or unfair, they may acquit the defendant, regardless of the evidence that the defendant violated the law. This is commonly referred to as jury nullification. " -Wikipedia article on Jury
