#1 Growing up, hearing how eating too much candy & sugar would "rot our teeth out" seemed to be the least of our parents' worries. But this high-fructose corn syrup...that garbage is what bothers/worries me.

#2 HFCS is weird stuff that doesn't metabolize normally.

Just eat what your grandparents ate - natural food, real food with a fair amount of animal fats instead of synthesized lab ingredients - in reasonable proportions and you'll be ok

#5 Perhaps one treatment against aggressive behaviors would be for affected individuals to sit and watch Bill Barr going after the Swamp. The soothing, if not boring, effects should reduce anxiety and be somniferous.

#6 Studies on rats have shown fructose intake to instigate all markers of metabolic syndrome - increased waistline, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, lipid abnormalities, dementia, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. These studies have also shown high fructose intake to stimulate free radicals, weaken the arteries, create a fatty liver, and cause kidney damage.

But not global climate change. Not yet. Need more studies!

#7 But wait! Gout is the disease of royalty. So, what are certain demographic sectors complaining about?

#8  Gout is the disease of royalty.

Sure, back when only the rich could afford to overeat, Clem, and all the poor were slender. Nowadays obesity is a poverty marker, and the disease follows.

#9 I just read the list of things that have to much fructose in them. There's nothing left that's fun to eat. I'm going to go go jump in a volcano per the suggestion of many people I have met. They must have been referring to this article it seems, and wanted to warn me.

#10 Salted peanuts in my Pepsi was supposed to be harmful according to someone. That was 65 years ago.

#11 You would have been 120 by now if you hadn't eaten all those peanuts and Pepsi.

#12 I could live to 120 if I kicked my Mexican Food and quality liquor habit. My point is: "Why would I want to?"
