Corn Syrup

Corn and wheat are not good for most people, and can cause all kinds of health problems besides weight gain and addiction.

It's entirely possible that obesity, though hard on the joints, and making exercise less attractive, isn't the actual cause of an early death, but simply a corellation to corn and wheat consumption.

I think corn is a likely suspect because it was not used in its current forms in earlier times (even though the native corn eaters used the mineral lime to alter it before eating, they did not have the type of corn we have today), and it only replaced cane sugar in the 1970's when Congress put a tariff on cane.

What do you think?
