One of my favorite parts:
On average, Americans consume about 12 teaspoons per day of HFCS, but teens and other high consumers can take in 80 percent more HFCS than average.
Yay for Americans! So, once again, we have major corporations creating and processing our food, profit-driven corporations. As consumers, we are removed from our food supply and have no control over it. So, dose a little of our soda with some mercury and we'll just go merrily along our way. La la la. La la la.
As least I am not the only one who thinks HFCS is the de-vil.
In my little corner of the world, there's a wicked snow/ice storm brewing (do I sound like a New Englander???). They are saying 10-14 inches of accumulation. We're all nice and cozy on the farm, plenty of water, feed, and delicious eggs (7 a day from my lovely hens).
After battling tonsilitis for a week, I relented this morning and rustled up some antibiotics to stave off the spreading sinus infection. I am not opposed to judicious use of antibiotics and I would rather not get pneumonia, thankyouverymuch. That'll teach me not to brag about my new lifestyle keeping me healthy. That, my friends, is what they call hubris.
