Okay, it seems pretty simple, take a corn-based glucose, break it down modify it so it sweeter, then put it back together for a cheaper, altered version of the original, and sell it to every food manufacturer out there. It might be cheap, and effective, but the side effects are far greater than the process. Here is the description of HFCS according to Wikipedia:
High-fructose corn syrup
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) – also called isoglucose, maize syrup, or glucose-fructose syrup in the UK, and glucose/fructose in Canada – comprises any of a group of corn syrups that has undergone enzymatic processing to convert its glucose into fructose and has then been mixed with pure corn syrup (100% glucose) to produce a desired sweetness. In the United States, consumer foods and products typically use high-fructose corn syrup as a sugar substitute. In the United States, it has become very common in processed foods and beverages, including breads, cereals, breakfast bars, lunch meats, yogurts, soups and condiments.

Just got done watching The Yellow Submarine by the Beatles. It is one heck of a trip and actually quite well done when you consider that there was no computer graphics or animation when the movie was made. I remember watching the film when I was a child on a little black and white TV in the early 70’s or late 60’s (yes I am that old) and seeing it in color for the first time was a treat.
All the songs have been remastered with DTS and full surround sound and it was great, but don’t let the chair or sofa eat you. This film is trippy and you can definitely see where all the early children’s television got their ideas. If the room is warm and you don’t have enough water you will fall a sleep with all those swirling colors and mood music going on.
This is a definite must see for anyone that is a Beatles fan. Even the transvestite blue meanies were a treat. Read more...(170 words, 1 image, estimated 41 secs reading time)
This is one of the cutest shows I have seen lately. It was originally done in Canada, or rather for Canada. It is about a girl named Jane that was tired of being a maid in waiting, just like her mother. She was so against being a servant in the kings’s castle that when the prince was found missing she went to go get the little brat back.
Yes, the prince is a real brat and is always trying to cause problems. You know how kids are that are born with a silver spoon in their mouth, they think they are better then everyone else and they always make a point of pointing that fact out. EVEN if they are WRONG!

This is a project I’ve been wanting to take on for quite some time. It seems that the corporate food companies have been poisoning us for decades using altered corn-based products and sweeteners. Maize is not under attack here, for it has been a staple grain crop in the Americas for millenia. The alterations came only recently within the last few decades, and with that, the poor alteration of our bodies and our lack of energy. What I want to address here is ways to get away from the damage that they might have already caused to millions of what could be normally healthy people across the globe. It’s time to educate the world about altered maize and other low cost additives and how they have caused what used to be our nutritionally sound diets to spiral out of control.

I would like to thanks everyone who comes and visits this site. Here you will find musings on just about anything that I might think of. You will also find my reviews about websites, DVDs, Blu-rays, TV shows, music and what nots. You might even find some political and religious views and reviews as well. You never know what you might find here. I do promise though to be totally honest (at least I hope so) with you about what I think about something.
As I said there will be reviews about many things. If I find a book I like I will let you know about it and what I think of the author that wrote it, but I can be forgetful at times, so… What was I saying?
