4. Why don't they just use cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup?

as the link between HFCS and hypoglycemia, diabetes and obesity is documented now.

It look a little bit like the early days of the campaign against smoking, where the corporate line was strictly about liberty and freedom of choice, while behind the scenes it was about killing the science.

In any case, in case anyone hasn't looked at the actual legislation, you can drink sodas as big as you want as long as they don't have HFCS. If the soda companies wanted to use cane sugar, the product would taste as good (if not better), and would just cost a couple cents more to make.
