the "health food" industry will sell you fructose telling people that it is a "more natural and healthy" sweetener.
Very true. Ever see Agave Nectar in health food stores? It can be up to 90% fructose. Which can't possibly be good for people with fructose malabsorption syndrome .
Now, who in their right mind would even attempt to drink an entire case of sodas, sweetened, diet or otherwise?
I've had many of my solar powered lawn lights turn into ant farms simply because they make great shelter. Ants love warmth. Here's an experiment: Get an empty paint can, drill a small hole on the side near the bottom and set it outside preferably in an out of the way yet sunny part of the yard; e.g. by a fence. Watch how fast that sucker fills up with ants. With the sun beating down on telephone and cable hookup boxes, in my neighborhood about half of them have ant mounds around them. And yard transformers are warm all year round, the little buggers get inside and pile up moist dirt until they reach the conductors and bzzzt! What amazes me is how high they'll climb to build a nest- At a previous neighborhood where the utilities were strung up on poles, I called the phone company complaining of line noise one day, so they came out and found an ant nest inside the rubber boot on the pole 25 feet in the air.
But where I live, ants aren't so much a problem in window AC units as brown paper wasps are...
