    Default WHat do you think of this?

    Their's talk of an intervention in a city of getting all the establishments to go sugar free for a year, now what that means is they won't display to cokes or sweets in pretty little displays and instead advertise healthier options. So it's not actually going sugar free it's just making it so it's not in your face. Think this has potential the idea is to help battle diabetes and obesity. good idea bad idea neutral idea? I don't think it will work.

    I don't think it'd work either. It might help like, 1%. But people still know the products are out there, and they still love them. And, what kind of things would they put as "healthier options"?

    Control freaks running loose.

    Obesity (in my view) is more a lack of activity and overeating problem.
    Diabetes (type 2) is also a weight problem; they should spend more of their time finding a cure for the disorder and stop attacking sweet tasty sugar.

    the people who are doing this have spent years studying obesity and diabetes and have discovered their is a strong connection between high fructose corn syrup and the two. I'm not saying lack of exercise isn't part of it, but it's not the only factor


    I think it would behoov food companies to promote healthier and use dextrose instead because while dextrose is more expensive their customers will live longer buying more food.

    I don't think it'll work. Americans do eat way too much sugar, and especially HFCS. I haven't read any studies on HFCS, but however it turns it, it really doesn't compare to cane sugar as a sweetner. I avoid it as much as I can when I'm craving something sweet.

    Hm wouldn't this be expensive, to just tell every candy/soda/sweet stuff company to use dextrose? Some companies might not even switch.

    I agree their is a difference between sugar and high fructose, we need at least one good generation of high use corn syrup users to come to concrete knowledge of its effects (side note: many people have been using it on their pancakes for decades). Old eaters are of use to health food companies only; dietary limitations keep most from enjoying salt, fatty meats and sugars.

    high fructose corn syrup and pancake syrup are not the same thing.
