I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes AND health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

I never said I'd live longer, but I'll likely be healthier (and happier) while I'm alive.

I REALLY am not trying to stir up any trouble here or ruffle any feathers, I'm just playing Devil's Advocate. Can we have a serious debate about the health risks of HFCS in a drink that contains 1 ounce of HFCS and 6 ounces of hard liquor?

That sounds a bit sweet for my tastes. But I have said many a time here that I tend to the more sour and tart for my drinks.

To each their own I guess.

HFCS is now the pariah of all additives, the MSG of the new millenium. Labels for the most unsuspecting products now shout "CONTAINS NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP!" Hot dogs, for instance. Canned corn. Tampons. I bought paint remover at Lowe's the other day that proudly proclaimed "Contains NO High Fructose Corn Syrup!"
