Why isn’t The American Diabetes Association lobbing to have High Fructose Corn sweeter removed from our foods? It is a known cause of Type II Diabetes. What has changed in the last 20 years that has caused such a dramatic increase in diabetes? They have started adding High Fructose Corn sweetener to everything our children eat. It’s in the candy our children eat and why? Because it’s cheaper that sugar. While I’m happy that you are doing more about prevention, it’s not enough. Demand a stop to corporate greed and lobby for them to stop poisoning our children.
