Exactly.


The problem though, from a medical standpoint, is that with increasing doses of high fructose corn syrup, or things that are high in fructose instead of sucrose or glucose, is that it can severely damage the liver.


High doses of fructose will be metabolized in the liver, and cause very high cholesterol, triglycerides, and will actually cause fatty infiltration/deposits in the liver.

Although the liver is resilient, it will start to feel the affects and die a slow painful death much like with alcohol or other hepatic disease such as hepatitis.


This also contributes to metabolic syndromes that lead to heart disease & diabetes, and since it becomes more of a fatty infiltrative problem it isn't as readily reversible as simple diet and exercise.


So yes, moderation, but unfortunately sometimes people just don't know or aren't educated enough on what they're putting into their bodies.
