Comparing the food and drinks industry to the tobacco industry owing to their overuse of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), or glucose-fructose syrup as it's often referred to in the UK, to the detriment of everyone's health, just because it's cheaper.

Now that's much better. An article informing people about something they may not be aware of, expressed in non-hysterical form, stating referenced facts about something which really should give cause for concern. Thanks, Contadina.

Good article, I shall watch the programme with interest.

As for MSG, I don't care if it occurs naturally in my food but I won't be adding it in powder form any time soon.
