Dear Kathy Warwick of the CRA:
I am a health teacher and hypnotist who works to improve the health of my fellow Americans--unlike you, Kathy.
Please do not use the American Dietetic Association or the American Medical Association to prove that high fructose corn syrup is perfectly "fine" for your fellow Americans. A soft drink company sponsors the ADA. Please do your own research to discover this.
The AMA certainly profits from the "dis"ease of their fellow Americans and would certainly support the profits being discovered from increasingly sick and diabetic Americans. Obesity is now an epidemic. (Thanks in a major part to HFCS).
I served on a research team in the past and results can certainly be biased when reported. Ethically, I couldn't keep working on the team, although what they did was perfectly legal. We could put in the statistics in different ways on the computer, and come out with totally different looking results on our "rat" research.
The research supported by aspartame companies is totally different than research from independent companies. Kathy and readers of this post can start with this from Dr. Mercola's website:
And Kathy, please let the readers know how much of that artificial red "HFCS" laced drink (from the advertisement) do you drink in a day, and how much do you give to your children in a day (in ounces, please)? You tell parents to give it their children. As a responsible dietitian, let us know how much you drink? We are waiting. I have asked you this on other posts--and no answer. Could the answer be "none". As a dietitian, you should feel a responsibility regarding the health of fellow Americans and not spread biased research. That artificial red drink has no part--absolutely no part--in a healthy diet--not even if used "in moderation." Shame on you--and the entire CRA for endangering the health of fellow Americans by suggesting that they "drink" this "cool-aid."
