Sugar vs High Fructose Corn Syrup: Who’s the baddest of the bad?

Big Sugar is taking Big Corn to court.  Big Sugar doesn’t like Big Corn advertising that their high fructose corn syrup is “nutritionally the same as table sugar.”

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black (as they do in the article linked below).

This quote pretty much sums it up:  “Both sugar and HFCS rake in hundreds of billions of dollars per year. Though HFCS is considered the unhealthier of the two, table sugar is also horribly unhealthy. The World Health Organization has labeled refined sugar as a leading cause of illness in the world today. Both should be avoided”.

Check out the article.   It gives an interesting historical view as to why HFCS came about in the first place.
