yeah i also saw the one at the kids bday party or something. But that is the same thing i thought as well. I mean i am no expert on nutrition or sugars, but the only result i see from this commercial is making some americans think that it is ok to consume the corn syrup and sugars. It is no secret that america is FAT and this does not help at all

i dont know any specific studies off hand but i mean most of us have heard of the negative affects: contributed to diabetes, risk factor for obesity (especially childhood, which itself is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and early death amongst others)..in one of my classes last semester we were told that in 2000 the avg person consumed something like 73lbs of HFCS per year..disgusting. And the commercial calls for "moderation" but that is near impossible to do when 20oz sodas usually contain about 20 teaspoons of HFCS (federal dietary guideline says we should limit our intake of sugar to 8 teaspoons based on a 2,000 cal diet)..just something to think about

how can you not eat it. Its in everything

-bread
-pre packaged oatmeal
-supposed 100% all natural fruit juices
-sodas
-some chips
-beef jerky
-additives to some spices
-sauces (tomato/bbq)


Whats really sickening is that since i've been eating it my whole life I can't stand he way some foods tastw w/o it. for example I bought some overpriced natural bread that didn't have HFCS in it and it tasted awful.

I guess i'm used to that soft sugary goodness.

It is ok to consume sugar. It's called getting off your ass and exercising.

No, it's all about educating people and getting it through their heads that a cup of 100% natural grape juice usually contains just as much sugar as articially sweetened grape juice.

And it's also meant to piss off all the OCD people on bb.com who freak out if their friends offer them an ice cream cone.


It's sad when we have commercials trying to convince people to eat unnatural, diabetes causing poison.

I eat quite a bit of HFCS every day and have managed to avoid diabetes. Go eat your artificially sweetened whey. Oh and by the way, you might avoid diabetes from HFCS if you exercise. Just sayin'.

I completely agree that more people just need to educate themselves and become more active. That is one positive that i take from the commercial: it is a challenge at Americans to take accountablity for their own choices. But it is unfair for children who become obese or develop diabetes because of the environment they have been exposed to. This is the part of the population that from the start is given an unfair advantage in living a healthy life.

Let's not forget that 2/3 of the population over the age of 20 is overweight (including a staggering 1/3 that is obese) or that 1/5 of those aged 6-19 are overweight.

That's a cool statistic and all, but this argument was originally about HFCS. That many people aren't overweight/obese because of HFCS, it's because of two things.

Bad eating habits & lack of exercise.

Speaking of random statistics, did you know that natural gas use has increased by 35 percent over the past ten years, and is projected to grow 45 percent by 2015?

The reason they are pushing this **** so hard is because there is a corn surplus in the US due to the practice of our government of reimbursing farmers when the cost of corn drops (monoculture anyone?). There's no supply and demand, just SUPPLY SUPPLY SUPPLY. We grind the **** up and feed it to cows (who aren't even evolved to digest it, therefore we have to pump them full of antibiotics to prevent the bacteria in their ruminants from running wild) along with their own ground up brains (well, not anymore, but that was a great practice, wasn't it? same calories! a calorie is a calorie right? what's cannibalism??...) which screws up the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids and contributes to inflammatory disorders in the population eating this meat.

Not only is HFCS unnatural, its part of an evil empire destroying our nation's health, culture and ecology.

That sort of thinking is why cancer rates are skyrocketing. People need to better educate themselves on the dangers of eating all this synthetic garbage that's being created for us to consume. People need to get back to their roots and start eating natural, whole foods that haven't been altered by scientists.

Ok but the point of this commerical is that it's no worse than table sugar. And it's not. But people here don't typically spoon themselves table sugar either. Could they use a little in moderation? Of course they could, but I don't think anyone here would recommend getting most of your cals from sugar, for health reasons if not body composition. Yes this commercial is a little corny*, and no one's going to trust the corn refiner's association, but the lady's right.

HFCS is not poison. Cane sugar is not poison. They may as well be the same thing as far as glucose/fructose composition, but the hype is revolving around hfcs b/c it's cheaper and thus more widespread, plus it just has some weird sinister ring to it people dislike. I don't really know, I'm just speculating because it doesn't make a lick of sense.

Please note: Nowhere in this post did I say "zomgz hfcs is awesome 4 u", in case someone feels compelled to put words in my mouth.

This new TV and print campaign prompted today's show and my blog entry



Show # 188


09/09/2008

- High Fructose Corn Syrup Revisited

Guest: Dr. Barry Popkin

High Fructose Corn Syrup died an ugly death at the hands of popular science. The Corn Refiners Association is trying to revive it through TV and print ads comparing HFCS to regular everyday table sugar. Most of the studies in the 80s and 90s on HFCS were done on rats. More recent studies have been done on humans.

Dr. Popkin's group was one of the first to publish a study on the dangers of HFCS and its link to obesity. I investigate the current information on this refined sweetener.

That's something that you cant prove to be true or false (not that i think it is true at all). All researches can do is prove "risk factors". This is the same reason why tobacco companies for years do not admit to the fact that their cigs are killers.. it would be unethical to actually prove it through a true experiment (the only way to prove a cause-effect relationship).

But anyway back to the commercial.. i think we can all agree that HFCS is no worse than you than any other refined sugar..which is what seems is one point the commercial is making. I think we can also agree that in no-way is sugar good for you. I mean c'mon now, we have kids who are 11 and 12 who are acquiring type II diabetes, someone please justify that for me; impossible.

and this was exactly my point when I interviewed Dr. Popkin on the show. The CRA is correct. HFCS is no different than table sugar. Neither are any good. The analogy I used during the show is its like saying smoking cigarettes is no worst for you than breathing the fumes from your car's tailpipe.... and you shouldn't do either. The CRA missed the boat with this ad campaign. They used the "hey were just as bad as the other bad stuff you're using so use us too" approach.

hurdle this is my fear. too many parents are overwhelmed with trying to make the right decisions about feeding their families and this campaign may give them the "permission" to go ahead and buy that sale item with HFCS in it and justify it in their mind. the TV ads are very specific to target parents as they fill childrens drink cups or teens eating a Popsicle. Its not the adults that are at risk its the kids and the adults make a lot of the decisions about their nutrition.

I believe that in years to come the development of most neurological diseases will be be identified as being caused by refined sweetener consumption. I am positive that its at the root of RLS. I don't care what MD's say about that statement. I have plenty of proof.

Its not just high serum glucose levels... it the dramatic fluctuations that are potentiated by poor glucose management that is caused by high refined sweetener intake IMHO.

It's almost like the artificial sweeteners and quasi-artificial sweeteners are about to duke it out. It all sucks IMO, but it's really tough to avoid the HFCS.

So? So is plenty of the food being used to combat global hunger. I'm sick of the mentality that's becoming pandemic that anything not found in nature is inherently worse for you. Guess what? The treatments that fight viruses, bacteria and disease usually don't grow on trees. Not to mention cocaine and cyanide are found in nature. There's nothing inherently better about something 'natural' vs. something 'artificial'.

Yes well your logic and common sense clearly has no place in this thread, brah. :rolleyes:

I'm sure this is a "duh" for a lot of you, but it's genetically engineered crap that was never intended to go in your body.

Yep, this was covered back on page 1 I believe. Good try tho :).


The brownies that are made to go into MY body are nuthin' always made with sugar (yeah, honey would be better) and butter (or margarine with no trans fats).

lul wut? (btw, I bet your brownies have gluten in them. Oh, and if you wanna talk about artificial stuff, you might wanna stop taking your artificially flavored whey.)

You're brownies are nuthin'? Damn, that sucks. An example better suited for a HFCS discussion would be juices, soda etc etc...not homemade brownies.

hurdle this is my fear. too many parents are overwhelmed with trying to make the right decisions about feeding their families and this campaign may give them the "permission" to go ahead and buy that sale item with HFCS in it and justify it in their mind. the TV ads are very specific to target parents as they fill childrens drink cups or teens eating a Popsicle. Its not the adults that are at risk its the kids and the adults make a lot of the decisions about their nutrition.

Yeah this is my biggest problem with the add too. I have a little sister who is 6 and my parents allow her to drink soda and eat all types of sweets all the time. It really is sad. I still cannot believe that i saw an add for HFCS on tv though, unbelievable haha.

If we're calling people out...since when do you use "you're" in place of "your"? And I'll just assume you were being cute (?) with the "nuthin'".

Take it if you dish it!

Tuche. Except when I called him out, I never implied that he spelt anything wrong, rather used meaningless examples. Darn, good try tho! :)

Oh, and yeah, I was being cute by saying "nuthin" seeing as how it was in his original post.

You are probably gaining more fat from cortisol from stressing out about this ad than you would if you ate a few grams of HFCS :D
