(Body by corn subsidies apparently...)
This is rather odd to read. I've always had a knee jerk preference of sugar over high fructose corn syrup, even going so far as to buy sugar sweetened Mexican Coke (when I drank Coke) as opposed to my own country's corn syrup variety. It's kinda nice when your biases are given a veneer of scientific respectability. Of course, if I were actually to delve into the scientific paper itself, I'm sure I would find a litany of qualifications and unanswered questions that may partially or wholly undermine the headline. But I prefer to let the article stand as is, without dissecting it, so I can be right.
Maybe in the future they'll just have to mix a little kelp in with all the high fructose corn syrup...
