New York Times article on high fructose corn syrup

Mandymac | Jul 2, 2006 06:19 PM

Wondering what people thought of this article skeptical of the villanization of HFCS in the nytimes:

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/07/02/bus...

I've always been type of person to bring up those studies in casual conversation--i.e. HFCS is linked to obsesity and is evil and etc. Reading this article, my self-righteousness kind of crumbled. And I thought of other additives people eschew for being vaguely evil (Nutrasweet/Splenda), with a similar lack of real evidence to back their qualms. So I'm wondering: is it enough to just say: if it's not natural, it's bad, and if anyone else found this article provocative.
