More Ranting About High-fructose corn syrup

A (long) while ago I posted a rant about High-fructose corn syrup or HFCS.

Well, this stuff just isn't getting any better for you.

It seems that in an article posted in the Los Angeles Times on July 14, 2008 called "What's making us fat? Maybe it's all that high-fructose corn syrup" it is possible that:

Although those who eat sugar gained the same amount of weight as those who consume HFCS based on the number of calories consumed, the HFCS consumers "had an increase in the least-desirable fat (the kind that wraps around internal organs, causes a pot belly and is linked to higher risk of diabetes and heart disease) while the others did not."

"The fructose-eaters (but not the glucose-eaters) also had heightened levels of triglycerides and cholesterol and decreased insulin sensitivity, a danger sign for diabetes."

Makes ya think, doesn't it?

Test of Jott.

Well, I am trying to make my life more connected so I have connected my Jott account with Live Journal to see what it can do. This is a test of that system so we will see how accurate it is.

It will be nice in quiet moment to be able to actually compose my thoughts and send them to Live Journal so I can see what I am doing.
