That's actually a pretty significant study. To date, there have been no proven facts showing that high fructose corn syrup metabolizes any differently than common table sugar. That and the fact that it's much much cheaper to produce corn is why it's used in everything. If beets grew as easy as corn, we wouldn't use it. The criticism of the American diet has really been about the over consumption of sugar in general (as well as proteins and fats) leading to abundant fat stores and poor health. The attack on corn syrup has been purely political up until this point.
