High Fructose Corn Syrup aka Corn Sugar pisses me off!

I watched 2 amazing documentaries that really opened my eyes to this HFCS situation in the United States. One was called "King Corn" and the other was called "Food Inc." both available streaming on Netflix. Anyways I was so disappointed with the FDA for allowing it in ALMOST ALL FOODS in the grocery stores. What a shame. And for what? To save a fraction of a penny. They are giving us Diabetes and Cancer and we're gobbling it all up. So to combat this, at the age of 30, I have begun making my own healthy and organic alternatives to my favorite foods that had HFCS! I make my own chips and french fries w/ olive oil. I make my own peanut butter with olive oil, honey, and peanuts. I even made my own ice cream... It wasn't "healthy" but it definitely lacked HFCS! Who's with me? Who's fighting the good fight against High Fructose Corn Syrup?
