"This study appears to be based on outdated information of dubious significance," said Audrae Erickson, president of the Corn Refiners Association, in a statement. "Our industry has used mercury-free versions of the two re-agents mentioned in the study, hydrochloric acid and caustic soda, for several years. These mercury-free re-agents perform important functions, including adjusting pH balances." ......Washington Post link
Setting around the Shed this morning drinking a cup of KC's finest Roasterie and watching my friends on FNC. Heard this story about products containing High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) made with mercury. I'm sure by now most people have seen that rediculous commercial sponsered by the Corn Refiners Assoc where 1 brother is convincing the other one that HFCS is not bad for you..."same nutritional value as sugar"... Great !!! That's wonderful news...hold on...what exactly is the nutritional value of sugar and why would I want to eat something equivalant that also contains traces of mercury?? Do yourself and family a big favor and get rid of that shit immediately. If products in your house contain sugar and HFCS, there's an alternative, you just need to read the labels. Remember the more processed, the more crap it contains. As Dr. Ashton a frequent guest on FNC says "Eat from the farm not the factory".
Enjoy the weekend, I'm off to watch to the 160lb. BAMF from Ensley Lane get his biznass done on the mat. RP
