Too many calories = me getting fat? Nah, that can't be true.

Boing Boing has a post today that takes a non-emotional look at High Fructose Corn Syrup.
"Keep an eye out for added sugars—of all kinds—in products. If you're worried about empty calories and weight gain, that's your real concern. But don't stress too much about this. Cutting down on the added sugars in your life is good. But a little added sugar isn't going to kill you. And high-fructose corn syrup isn't more of a worry than any other sweetener."

WHAT?!   It might NOT be the scourge of mankind?  But everyone told me it was evil!  Now I need to rethink the manifesto I was writing.  What else rhymes with stirrup?
