“In results published online March 18 by the journal Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Behavior, the researchers from the Department of Psychology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute reported on two experiments investigating the link between the consumption of high-fructose corn syrup and obesity. ”
The Princeton University Study finds that 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.

  1. I don’t know why that stuff is in anything! Here in Australia we don’t use it at all, and having recently bought some American candy and soft drinks for a novelty experience, I can tell you that our HFCS free stuff is much more superior! Your soft drink is twice as sweet as ours and only half as fizzy- and I could actually taste the corn.

    • Oh you are so right! I remember when I was a little kid, cokes were a treat. Now, they’re just gross. Whenever I really am wanting something fizzy, I have to hunt out the ones they sell in the grocery stores that cater to the Hispanic population, as the imported ones still contain sugar.

      Also, hello to Australia! =)
