I've been thinking about doing a book and film along the lines of "Super Size Me" about high fructose corn syrup -- like trying to give up for a year all products made with it and documenting the experience. I read this interesting article today while researching HFCS.

I have been aware for some time of the Earl Butz connection. One thing I learned today is that some scientists think that HFCS acts more like fat than sugar in the body.

The only problem with my idea is that I don't drink soda, which is the main user of HFCS. But I'm sure there are zillions of other products (ketchup and salad dressing) that have it that I do have in my house.
