High-Fructose Corn Syrup

Hello everyone!

I have started a petition that may be of interest to people who are in to eating natural and healthy like myself. Liberals and those who are interested in food politics might also like this.

My petition, which is on the White House website, asks the Obama administration to reduce the availability of high-fructose corn syrup, which in addition to providing no health benefits yet being in most foods, may be linked to obesity, diabetes, etc. The ultimate goal of the petition is to simply start a debate on healthy eating and the obesity epidemic.

Here is my petition if you care to look at it: wh.gov/lCiH9

I wish good health to you all!

I think you're on to something here, and agree it's a great idea. Obesity, amongst other things in the U.S., is becoming a huge problem. In general, I feel that people should just cut out all refined sugars from their diets - easier said than done, I know. But, getting petitions like this going is just a step to help cure obesity in the U.S. Good luck with it, and I'll be sure to spread the word about your endeavor.

Hi - this nasty stuff should be eliminated from all our diets if we know what's good for us!

I guess that's where eating whole unprocessed food comes in and not using ready made convenience foods. For example instead of buying a curry sauce which is already made, use the natural spices and chilli for the heat!
