The Washington Post has printed an article about mercury contamination in nearly half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup. This contamination was found in 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products where HFCS is the first- or second-highest labeled ingredient.

High-Fructose Corn Syrup is in practically everything nowadays. It's bad enough we have problems with fish —what else are we going to get hit with?

Just one more reason to NOT eat that stuff. I tell you, as little safety as there is in so much of our food...I am glad that I am going back to growing some of my own. is just redicilous.
It seems that the PH balancing is the cause, the machines used to make that. It is all so intertwined, will it never end and will no one step up and take responsibility for killing us with HFC and now tainted?
