HFCS-Free Day 2012 is Tomorrow! #HFCSfree12
HFCS-Free Day is a great idea of @DMomBlog. She proposes that each of us take August 25, 2012 to make a conscious effort to read labels and choose foods that are not made with high fructose corn syrup.
She also encourages adults who dislike the Corn Refiners Associations’ marketing, the Sweetener Studies’ spin on HFCS, or the widespread inclusion of HFCS in prepared foods to get involved.
Please take a few minutes to read the post The Ethics of Exhibiting at Diabetes Expos written by Michael Hoskins at Diabetes Mine (http://www.diabetesmine.com/2012/08/the-ethics-of-exhibiting-at-diabetes-expos-2.html
). where he shares the logic behind who can and can’t exhibit at diabetes-related conferences. The American Diabetes Association says no to booths like that of the Corn Refiners Association, but the AADE says yes.
It’s not okay. It’s just not.
