I received a letter from Corn Refiners Association

"We Read the November 18 article "Talking about Food and Farming with Orren Fox" with interest. There has been a lot of confusion about high fructose corn syrup. We would like to provide you with science-based information on this safe sweetener and be a reference for you for future articles.

The American Medical Association stated that, "Because the composition of high fructose corn syrup and sucrose are so similar, particularly on absorption by the body, it appears unlikely that high furctose corn syrup contributes to obesity or other conditions than sucrose." (Report 3 of the Council on Science and Public Health A-08, June 2008. http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/no-index/about-ama18641.shtml)"

I guess I need to do more research, The Corn Refiners suggested
