High fructose corn syrup: Is it bad for you or should you believe the many new ads from the Corn Refiners Association, which is spending a reported $20 million to $30 million to convince us of its safety?
Get the facts today on my Gab With The Gurus Radio Show, where I will have the following guests:
- Curt Ellis, director and producer for the fascinating documentary "King Corn."
- Cardiologist Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., co-author of my book Sugar Shock!
- Richard J. Johnson, M.D., author of The Sugar Fix: The High-Fructose Fallout That is Making You Fat and Sick
- Nutritionist, author and personal trainer Pedro Bastos, a colleague of Loren Cordain, Ph.D., acclaimed for his Paleo Diet.
- Biochemist and food and beverage formulator Russ Bianchi, who is also chief executive officer and managing director of Adept Solutions.
Before you tune into today's radio show about high fructose corn syrup, I recommend that you see:
- The full campaign, which includes three TV spots ("Brothers," "Party" and "Two Bites"), print ads in magazines and newspapers, and online banners that are increasingly seen on the Internet.
- A paid endorsement of high fructose corn syrup with cardiologist James M. Rippe, M.D. (Hmm. I wonder just how much he was paid by the Corn Refiners Association to make those pro-corn syrup statements. By the way, it's interesting that he says "our website" when referring the CRA site.)
In addition, I recommend that you order a copy of the eye-opening documentary, "King Corn."
And I encourage you to watch the 3 Minute Ad Age news story, A Sour View of Corn Refiners' Sweetener Ads, for which I was recently interviewed.
And you may want to see my previous comments about the new high fructose corn syrup ads.
Remember, if you miss the show live, you can listen later, at your convenience.
