If you read the label on many

commercially prepared sodas

and juice drinks, chances are

that you will see high fructose corn

syrup (HFCS) listed among the

ingredients. The use of this

product as a sweetener has

increased over the past few

increase in the prevalence of

that there is an association

between HFCS and obesity. Is

the increasing prevalence of

obesity?
