I wrote this in the comments of this post, but I’d like to put it in a post for those of you not inclined to read said comments.
When asked to put the HFCS/Obesity issue into one statement, this is what I came up with.
The rise in obesity is a direct result of over-production of a government subsidized sweetener.
Whether or not you think is a bad thing, I leave it up to you to decide. I will say that it’s a far different argument than “HFCS is worse than table sugar”.
