high fructose corn syrup

I'm currently doing my own research to figure out if hfcs is worse than sugar or overall bad for me. It was recently brought to my attention by something more than the commercial with the dripping blob in the school play. So, I figured I better find out what all the fuss is about. Now there is the new commercial with the parents that say it's fine in moderation, all things are right? Except soy don't eat that stuff. The point is this. I haven't been paying much attention to what of my food would be affected (liz, christie is that right one?) by me giving up hfcs. So, as I was driving to work, I opened my lunch bag, that contains a fairly healthy lunch, to see what I shouldn't eat from it. My grapes and my 100 calorie cheez-it's were the only thing that passed. I would have to give up fiber one bars (my breakfast), yogurt, granola, and my 100 cal cookies. Maybe I should stop the research I don't know that I could take it. It does seem to be true though that by the government subsidising corn they are putting it in everything.

In other news I forgot to bring my camera to work so no fun pictures today. I haven't made anyone quit the blog world or delete my comments as of late, so that's good. They closed another road on my way to work so I was pretty confused when trying to get here this morning. Hope they get stuff fixed soon. I made a great easy mexican casserole for dinner last night, it was yummy and pretty healthy, well at least not too bad.

no idea if you should stay away from soy. that sounds weird though. i know if you can avoid sugars, it's better for you - no matter what the form. but then, you wouldn't be very sweet, would you?

OH!
here's how i remember affect/effect for the most part...
if you can say THE EFFECT (a noun) - then it is usually E. otherwise, the verb is AFFECT.
