Um... yeah

Corn Syrup
Study Finds Exposure to Chemical Pollutants Increases Fat: Scientific American

Then there is the recentUniversity of California studythat indicates extra obesity risks from high fructose corn syrup. Contrary to the latter industry's claims, it isn't as safe as fruit juice and produces fat around the heart and tendencies to obesity. And American corporations put it in everything. See for further remarks on the U of Cal. study, which got far more press in the UK than in the US,here, and also atthis site. High fructose corn syrup is a lobbyists' scamand is the welfare queen of food additives.

I suspect this is only the tip of the iceberg. Our corporations are flooding our human environment with untested chemicals. Plastics area witches brew.Give me glass or wood, every time.

We weren't so fat in previous generations, and we shouldn't have to constantly struggle with our weight. Corporations would love to say it is our own fault for lack of discipline. But it is increasingly obvious that corporate food is the culprit. And in turn, corporate food lobbyists have written our laws to promote unhealthy products.
