Regardless of the arguments for or against high fructose corn syrup, it would be nice to get it out our diets. If you want, encourage cola companies to switch from HCFS to cane sugar or beet sugar at http://www.thepoint.com/campaigns/dear-high-fructose-corn-syrup-please-get-out-of-us-colas-thanks-america

There's the bigger issue of lessening corn subsidies to discourage the use of HFCS, but until then, this campaign is a start.

At another forum for diabetics, one guy tried HCFS. Measured his blood sugar. Then he tried cane sugar. Measured his blood sugar. His blood sugar with HCFS was twice as high as his blood sugar with cane sugar. His comment is just above here http://tudiabetes.com/forum/topics/583967:Topic:261850?page=1&commentId=583967%3AComment%3A327678&x=1#583967Comment327678 {I couldn't figure out a direct link - sorry}
