Corn is smarter than you

So sayeth the prophet of food, Michael Pollan.

Autumn loves Heinz ketchup. We had curry and chips last night with a side salad. It was a good meal, but we allowed Autumn to have some chips. Mom put the ketchup on the chips, and the cheeky little girl licked off the ketchup.

Which brought up a talk about High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). When you're done reading this, take a look through your food and see what doesn't have HFCS in it.

If, in an evolutionary sense, the goal of every species is to propagate the species, then corn is winning. We're about to use it as a fuel in cars as well as soda. It's in damn near everything in our house, and we try to get rid of it.

You can't fight it.
