HFCS Myths Debunked!

[After my previous post on sugar and high fructose corn syrup being everywhere, I found this page. “Intellectually dishonest” is the mildest qualifier which comes to mind for that page. Anyway, I decided to produce my own home-grown tripe.  Read on…]

Myth: High fructose corn syrup causes cannibalism.

Reality: There is no scientific evidence of a positive correlation between high fructose corn syrup and cannibalism. Quite the contrary, Dr. Fleug of the University of Hamburg has studied the link between high fructose corn syrup and cannibalism. In his study, he found that the control group, the group not fed HFCS, had a higher incidence of cannibalism than the group which was fed HFCS. Additionally, there are many possible causes of cannibalism and these causes are not easily isolated. For instance, zombification, fruit, unicorns and the US tax code are all possible causes of cannibalism. If you filed taxes or had fruit, you could be a cannibal and not know it.

Myth: HFCS is made from puppies.

Reality: Actually, HFCS is made from kittens.

Myth: High fructose corn syrup is high in fructose.

Reality: As a matter of fact, the H in HFCS does not mean “high” but “holy”. HFCS is full of godly goodness. Those who oppose the addition of HFCS in food items are not only unchristian but also hate freedom. They are unamerican and communists, and probably are cannibals too.

Myth: HFCS is made from kittens.

Reality: Actually, HFCS is made from puppies.

Myth: High fructose corn syrup is the sweetest substance known to us.

Reality: The perpetually happy, “think positive” new age types are sweeter than high fructose corn syrup. They taste like peach cobbler while the rest of the population tastes like chicken.

Editor: How do you know what people taste like?

HFCS Executive: We were members of the control group in Dr. Fleug’s study on HFCS and cannibalism.

    Excellent post. What a brilliant way to address the CRA’s sophomoric attempt to counter HFCS “myths.”

    By the way, there’s a new set of HFCS “myths” debunked, courtesy of Rick Berman’s Center for Consumer Freedom’s Sweet Scam, http://sweetscam.com/myths-and-facts/
    Apparently the CRA sees the need to bring out the big guns, so they hired Berman

      Thanks for the comment and for the link. I was confused for a moment there but then I realized that the site you mention is another front site for the HFCS industry.
