Why don't they just ban corn syrup from foods? Kids are becoming diabetic and obese?


14 years ago I stopped buying most products with corn syrup. I was the bad mom who would ban it from my kids, knowing it is bad. Our body's can't process that stuff. Food Companies through greed substituted our surgar for corn syrup. Everything from fruit snacks to cereals are laden with the corns syrup. Today we have an epidemic of kids who have type 2 diabetes and who are obese. What kid of life will these kids have? You have to watch your diet for the rest of your life and use insulin needles. What if you can't afford the insulin? Then what?
