Many High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCF) products contain mercury- the average daily intake of HFCF in the US is about 12 teaspoons, but for children the amount is much more.
Mercury in any amount is harmful, so is it any wonder that we have so many psychiatric/physical health problems in our country, since we are being systematically poisoned?

The mercury gets in the HFCS via the use of caustic soda, which is used to make the stuff ( not all HFCS has mercury, but I try hard to stay away from the crap anyway, merc or no merc-HFCS is just too chemically- a- carb for me).
