RE: Corn Sugar

Consumer, it is interesting that you find that relationship with corn sugar and blood sugar levels since fructose theoretically is supposed to be absorbed more slowly and thus create less of a spike in blood sugar levels. It just reiterates that we have alot to learn about the distinction between the different sugars.
In response to a comment in the article, I would just point out new research that does illustrate that excess fructose can have significant effects on the body including raising blood lipid levels. Check out this explanation by Dr. Lustig at UCSF. I was skeptical when I first heard of this but seem to be hearing of more research pointing to the same direction.
Lastly, no, correlation does not prove causation.
