Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

All Sweeteners Are Not Created Equal

From the health and welfare department here at The Rosemary Tree - A sweet problem: Princeton researchers find that high-fructose corn syrup prompts considerably more weight gain
QUOTE In results published online March 18 by the journal Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Behavior, the researchers from the Department of Psychology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute reported on two experiments investigating the link between the consumption of high-fructose corn syrup and obesity. UNQUOTE
The corn industry has had its PR machine in overdrive on this one for years, but now with heavy hitter Princeton University weighing in, it is only a matter of time before this becomes common knowledge. Actually it has been known intuitively for yeats, to wit, the common phrase for someone who is huge being "corn-fed". Avoid high fructose corn syrup, read those labels.
