With some people I feel they will be overweight and not do enough physical activity no matter what. If it wasn't HFCS, it would be something else....

Yes, for some that's certainly the case. I didn't talk in absolutes. For both being in perfect shape and being overweight there can be a multitude of reasons. So it's silly when some people jump to any conclusions just from looking at anyone.
I'm very lucky with my body. Another person who were living like me would certainly be overweight. I eat good, I like to eat sweets of all sorts and except for walking and taking the stairs instead of elevators and escalators I don't do sports. Yet, my BMI is between 16 and 17, so slightly underweight.
Other people look very well after their daily food intake and do a lot of physical activity, yet after each bag of chips or bar of chocolate they will have to 'sweat it off'.
In the end, HFCS is just one of so many factors.

Though, if I were having some sort of mono diet of junk food or just indulging in too great quantities of sweets it would get at me too, of course.

true, but i suppose my point was that it's present in things you would think don't even need sugar (if this were the pre-hfcs days or whatever). it does seem a bit of ridiculous to be in some savoury things. but they find additives like that and msg make food taste better and leave you wanting more, instead of just putting in good ingredients to begin with.

(i don't either, yet it's still the iconic white bread! i'm more of a whole wheat person these days.)

Food, Inc. was well done.

One interesting point I remember is that cows are meant to eat grass but are fed corn specifically to fatten them up fast. Sure, we're not cows, but GMO corn and/or soy derivatives are now in just about every processed food we eat.

Maybe that won't have negative effects on everyone in the same way (skinny people overdrink soda too) but my guess is the health of the majority can be compromised in ways we're just discovering.

Just stumbled upon this article on Google... I've always suspected that there was a link between cancer and "corn"....

New research shows cancer caused by carbohydrates, sugars, white flour, and corn syrup

I'm guessing by putting corn in quotes you mean corn derivatives? I'm still curious as to why you would suspect that...

That article is 6 years old, and I haven't really heard anything more about this link...

I do not drink sodas daily nor weekly, but when I do
I try to buy sodas that do not contain HFCS like Red Rock or Toms.

Here's a place where you can get Dr.Pepper without HFCS:
Dublin Dr Pepper

I wish it would be illegal for females to consume beverages with such high amounts of high fructose corn syrup due to "pregnancy issues later in life"

But still legal for males. Then the dudes continue to fatten and I look like Clooney by comparison.

Does Diet Soda contain HFCS? Just want to know if I should be worried.
