    Does high fructose corn syrup cause major problems?

    I have been eating Yoplait yogurt for breakfast for about twenty years. I have fatty liver? I know that there have been some answers on this but not real specific.

    absolutely. high fructose corn syrup does cause major problems, but I wouldn't say it's the lone sword in health concerns. Basically it makes you not feel full, or hungry for that matter so you'll be more likely to eat and eat. I've noticed quite a difference from drinking just water instead of soda with my meals.

    Doctor Lustig from UCSF did a great lecture on exactly what it does to your body. The video is kind of long but I found it highly informative.

    none have been shown

    fructoise is just another naturally occurring sugar, and the body uses it just like glucose.

    from mayo clinic:
    "... recent research — some of which is supported by the beverage industry — suggests that high-fructose corn syrup isn't intrinsically less healthy than other sweeteners, nor is it the root cause of obesity. " … up/AN01588

    it's not the fructose that's the problem - it's the fact that people eat too much SUGAR period.

    It can contribute to major problems. A common cause of a fatty liver is obesity, which high fructose corn syrup definitely contributes to. I don't mean to imply that you are obese though. A fatty liver can be caused by many other things as well.  In all likelihood, the yogurt isn't the only thing you're consuming that has HFCS in it. Check the ingredient lists and you might be quite surprised.

    There has been a fair amount of news lately regarding studies that linked high fructose corn syrup to pancreatic cancer, which I believe is the most incurable form of cancer. It's kind of hard to think about because high fructose corn syrup is in so many things, including soda.

    Sure it is one of the major problems healthwise, but the main prob really is lifestyle and firm determination to cut back on sweets and fats is also good.

    The corn industry wants to change the name from corn syrup to corn sugar. They still claim that high fructose corn syrup has no negative health benefits. Everything in moderation.
