Does soda promote abdominal obesity?

Studies suggest that when adults consume fructose (as in  HFCS = high-fructose corn syrup), as opposed to glucose, they gain abdominal fat.  Abdominal fat is metabolically active and produces all kinds of inflammatory mediators that damage the body.

“…a growing number of public health advocates are pushing for even more aggressive actions, urging that soda be treated like tobacco: with taxes, warning labels and a massive public health marketing campaign, all to discourage consumption.”
