You guys are a bit out-of date concerning the link between high fructose corn syrup and obesity. I`ve read at leats three studies in medical journals significantly linking high fructose corn syrup to obesity. These studies were conducted by neutral scientific parties as opposed to Corporate backed food research companies and anti-corn research.

The most recent having been published by Princeton University in late March, early April, compares the impact of high fructose corn syrup to the impact of sugar: http://bit.ly/d7wvnO

Don`t believe what you hear in commercials, and recognize that science is ever advancing. Also be aware that the corn industry is the largest single-crop agribusiness in the world.

Question everything. Do your own research.

The US imposes very high tariffs on sugar so most companies simply make their food without sugar. Instead they use high fructose corn syrup which studies have shown that there is a direct relation to the obesity epidemic. The tariffs remain in place because the use of the syrup keeps the US farm industry going. It is in everything - read your labels...or be fat.





this is fact

God, why do we even care about fat people? They know what they are doing. It`s their choice. All we can do is give them the information and the rest is up to them.

In what English-speaking country are "so many kids thin?" Then again, children are never called "kids" in the U.K. because that means a baby goat, so that leaves only the USA.

"But how many fat kids do you see?"
I am truly baffled by this statement. A WHOLE LOT OF THEM!

I don`t think so, shneeblefish. The problem is when you mix two of a kind, like sleeping pills and alcohol, which are both depressants.

"take a bunch of caffeine and wash it down with schnapps with this for a balanced meal. The caffeine ups your heart rate to burn calories and the booze thins your blood"
I`m pretty sure I heard doing stuff like this can kill you cos it`s a stimulant and a depressant working against each other...

Well it sort of has a point. A piece of cake or a big mac every now and then isn`t going to make you gain 200lbs. Eating them on a daily basis without any sort of exercise...well then you`re drated unless you have some kind of magic metabolism.

There was always a fat kid, even in the 70s.

Just not as many. And who uses sugar as a sweetener anymore anyway, especially in a soft drink.

Sure, if they take in sugar and burn it all in a massive sugar high or by playing sports, then fine. Everything in moderation. But too much can be bad for your teeth too. The enamel wears away.

"If you ate twinkies 3 square meals a day, you`d get fat. If you ate apples, you wouldn`t."

This is why they felt the need to get the point across...Its all about moderation. Eating 3 square meals of twinkies a day is not moderation. Its not about how much sugar is in the food, but how much sugar you eat

It`s not what`s in the food that`s the problem, it`s the the size of the portions and the fact that for many people (including kids) they have a sedentry lifestyle. Also so much of what is consumed in the Western diet is processed to heck with most of the nutritional value removed. What`s left is empty calories and a ton of salt, fat and carbs.

They put sugar in soft drinks?

Most everything is made with high-fructose corn syrup around here. Hell, Pepsi even had a "throwback" series that was "made with real sugar" instead of a substitute. Apparently our fat asses love us some fructose!

Poor diet DOES contribute to diabetes kids.
I have it in my family, almost every family member on my dad`s side has diabetes, but because I eat right, I stand a very good chance of not getting it.
My cousins ate total crap every day (one day a cousin ate cereal, canned ravioli, ice cream then chips an hour before dinner) and now have to inject insulin.

Sugar industry: "sugar is good food, it has great effects on the body and all sorts of other great things!!!"

American Diabetic Association: "Suagr diabetes or type II adult onset diabetes is now an epidemic in the US with nearly 1 in 7 Americans expected to get Db II in the next 15 to 20 years. This is a direct result of heavy sugar and poor diet intake."

I think we eat just as poorly as we did, just now kids have stupid video games and no imaginations so they just sit on their asses all day shooting aliens.

The best we had as a kid was Super Mario 64 so goddamn I was outside all the time.

You know what caused the weight gain?

Overprotective women at home cooking for their kids and making them stay home instead of running out in traffic.

Kids running out in traffic get all the exercise they need, big macs or not.

Ya know what cause the weight gain?? Women in the work place. Women arnt home to feed and care for their offspring. So on the parenst way home, they pick up a few big macs and call it a family meal.

I`m a house wife. I have a little part time job working less that 20 hours a week. But you can be damn sure I have breakfast and dinner cooked everyday. No fast food in my house. No junk food either.

One time when I was 7, There were Pixie stix on the highest shelf of the cabinet in the kitchen. I got a stool, reached as far as I could, and somehow the stool lost balance, tipped over, and I fell on my back. I had to go to the emergency room.

Sugar does not CAUSE diabetes, first of all, although it adds to the pancreas failing to make enough insulin to support the sugar intake. And sugar in moderation is fine, even if you have diabetes. As for fat kids, all the mini heifers I see have a big heifer to blame for it. Seriously, it pisses me off. Just because you`re fat doesn`t mean you have to make sure your kids are fatter than you.

My boyfriend`s mom is on the larger side and she has diabetes from not taking enough care of herself when she had the chance. Yes, she has 3 boys that like to eat junk, but she should know better than to be eating like that, or even to be letting her kids eat like that, because you know what? She`s a freaking nurse for christ`s sake! You`d think a nurse that specializes in surgeries and heart problems would have enough common sense to make sure her entire family is eating healthy the majority of the time. McDonald`s, pizza, and various grilled meats do not count.

The only kids I usually see that are fat usually have fat parents. Also there have been many studies that say sugar free and artificial sugar make you fatter. The logic here is your body needs sugar, and if all you are giving it is fake unusable sugar it will store any real sugar in reserve.

"SUGAR is the thing which gives you diabetes."

I agree, but in the end, too much sugar messes up with insulin and then with your entire metabolism. I suppose it is important for people to understand that.

Sugar does not get directly turned into fat, but they do cause the liver to produce excess triglycerides, which do get converted into fat.

sugar free candies are sugar free because they use sugar your body can`t metabolize therefore make you bloated, painful and diarreah if you eat too much. same thing with fatty foods..they use olestra for example and its not surprising its also called " Unwashable and Indestructible Ass Grease". lion..your post is full of fail

forgive me for not having my metabolic chart with me and no i dont know it by heart even if i am studying in biotechnology. Sugars are a VERY wide term to use, and depending on which sugar you are taking yes, it CAN become fat (aka fatty acids)

take glucose for exemple

glucose -> pyruvate -> acetyl~CoA ->(by Acetyl CoA carboxylase) -> malonyl~CoA -> fatty acids

oh wait what LOOK sugar becomes fat

also yes its a very important source of energy, however it is a very easily consumed energy source, therefore the "sugar rush" doesnt last long, just the way we know it.

Stand upright, hold your arm out at 90 degrees, and have a friend pull or push downwards with all his/her might. Wow, you`re amazingly strong, you can resist his efforts and keep your arm there!

energy =/= muscular force, and also more energy = more jittering, therefore its possible to lose "muscular resistance" when eating

People get mixed up. FAT is the thing that makes you fat, SUGAR is the thing which gives you diabetes. That`s why you`ll find Sweets labelled "99% Fat Free!" and fatty crap labelled "99 Sugar Free!". As Ruswut said, you can`t turn sugar (fructose, dextrose, glucose or sucrose) into fat.

BUT... does it really give you an energy hit? Try this simple experiment at home kids!

Stand upright, hold your arm out at 90 degrees, and have a friend pull or push downwards with all his/her might. Wow, you`re amazingly strong, you can resist his efforts and keep your arm there!

Now take 1 teaspoon of sugar, wait 30 seconds, then try it again.

Actually sugar isn`t what gets you fat. You can`t turn glucose into fat, but if you have too much in your system you`ll not use up fat reserves and all the fat you do eat will have no need to be used and will be stored instead.

I don`t see what the problem is: totally true - if you burn off fewer calories than you consume, you make fat. Sugar has calories, but so does everything else you eat. For sure sugar can be a part of your healthy diet.
