I'm cross-posting something similar to what I posted in the Coke vs. Diet Coke vs. Coke Zero thread, because it concerns me that so many people have believed the lies than hfcs is the same as sugar. It's simply a matter of misinformation.
Princeton scientists have proven in 2010 that high fructose corn syrup is more dangerous than sugar, and for anyone who is trying to argue that it's somehow more "natural" than diet sweeteners, that's a load of crap, because hfcs is an artificial sweetener that was invented in the late 1950's. HFCS is NOT natural, and it can be linked to excessive weight gain resembling that of people with a metabolic disorder, as well as loosely being linked to diabetes and possibly cancer:

Scientific Evidence Supporting the Dangers of High-Fructose Corn Syrup
The corn sellers began making commercials claiming HFCS was almost the same as sugar, because of the similar number of calories, but their claims are bogus, just because they want you to keep buying their product. These people have become outrageously wealthy over HFCS which is in EVERYTHING.
