High fructose corn syrup

From doctors at NY’s Mt. Sinai Medical Center:

…Today’s children may be the first U.S. generation in a century to have a shorter lifespan than their parents.

…abundance of cheap, unwholesome food sweetened by the synthetic sugar substitute high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Consumption of HFCS has increased tenfold since 1974. The obesity epidemic in America’s children precisely tracks this trend.

…health agencies … spend millions of dollars countering obesity while the USDA spends billions in farm subsidies that indirectly promote it. Fruit and vegetable farmers need more support: calories from vegetables are 100 times more expensive than those from HFCS, making it financially challenging for many consumers to make healthy food choices.
