My understanding of the matter is that while both have similar health effects, consuming HCFS does not suppress the appetite the same way sugar does. So people who consume HCFS beverages are in danger of not feeling full as quickly and so are in danger of idly consuming more if self control is an issue.

One anecdote (not data): The one time I drank a can of HCFS fizzy, I was surprised to find I didn't get the bloated feeling I usually experience when consuming regular sugary drinks. Of course that wasn't exactly a blind study.

Oh, bullshit. Genocide? Perhaps you mean the nations surrounding them that want to wipe jews off the planet.

You think your laundry list above of cherry-picked offences don't go on every single day in other dirtball countries?

Israel's worst 'crime' is defending itself, and perhaps the heinous crime of being the only democracy in the Middle East. Or perhaps you take exception to the fact that women and minority religions there have more rights than in any other surrounding nation.
