Myth: High fructose corn syrup is worse for you than sugar.

High fructose corn syrup is basically the same as sugar - both in composition and calories.  Once absorbed into the bloodstream, it is indistinguishable from sugar.  High frutose corn syrup is made from corn, a natural grain product and is a natural sweetener.  It contains no artificial or synthetic ingredients or color additives and meets the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's requirements for the term "natural".  As with any other food, balance and moderation are the keys.
