In other commercial offerings, I take exception to the "High Fructose Corn Syrup is just corn and not bad for you" commercials. HFCS is fine in moderation, they say. What they don't say is that it's almost impossible to restrict HFCS to anything approaching moderation in a modern American diet without taking draconian measures.
- For breakfast, your store bought orange juice, toast, peanut butter, jelly, AND cereal can all have HFCS if you don't take measures to prevent it. That's not moderation.
- For lunch, your soda either has semi-poisonous sweetners in it or HFCS. A hamburger bun will have HFCS as will your ketchup. Maybe even your fries. Or, if you have a ham sandwich, your bread, mayo and ham may all have it. If you get a salad, your commercial salad dressing will almost certainly have HFCS. As will some yogurt. That's not moderation.
- At dinner... I think you get the idea. Also, any dessert you have is more likely than not to have HFCS.
While I'm ranting, please ladies, if you can't move your upper lip due to implants or Botox or whathaveyou, you look sick and ill, not voluputous and sexy.
