I agree that this thing is not healthy but it is not to blame for people being obese! I never have watched what I eat and drink but I eat and drink a lot of things with high fructose corn syrup and I am not fat and never was either (i also dont have any illness besides depression but i had that when i was very young and when i was young my parents [1 of the rare things they did right] did not feed me and my brother [censored] so my depression cannot be linked to that). I just do not eat those unhealthy food like my stomach has no end, it's that easy. And children who are obese are victims of child abuse and the guilty party is their parents, if you can't or don't want to check everything a child eats and drinks then don't have kids! And, the main reason why they invented that (and other things like that 1) is because after food and drink companies bent over for the people whining about sugar, salt and fat in our food and drinks started complaining that the food and drinks without any of these things tasted bad. As long as a lot of people do not see the words sugar, salt and fat in the ingredients they think it's okay then they turn around and blame everything and everyone for not being able to control themselves and be good parents!
