HFCS Does Not Increase Liver Fat
This is one study that we must question. The doctor doing this study is heavily influenced by his position since, “He is an advisor to the food and beverage industry and has received unrestricted educational grants from the Corn Refiners Association.”
Since high fructose corn syrup is a product of industries represented by the Corn Refiners Association, we know that this study is quite likely biased and may well be rigged in results.
Rigged, yes, in a study only lasting 10 weeks, we must question the validity of the findings. This is not a length that would give other than the findings reported. A study lasting for one year or more would have given more trustworthy results, but would have done more harm to the participants.
Therefore, I can only say this is another junk science study and done by a person heavily indebted to the Corn Refiners Association. This is another of those studies that should have never made it into print. The study was done by James Rippe, MD, professor of biomedical sciences at the University of Central Florida and a paid consultant for the Corn Refiners Association.
