Commodities Market Marketing by Federal Government

This is interesting…

The government subsidized American sugar and applies a tariff to imported sugar, thus the food and beverage industry switched to corn syrup because it became cheaper than using sugarcane.

Now, they are conveniently coming up with a way to scare the public away from corn syrup and back to the higher priced sugar cane…interesting.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I understand that corn syrup is killing Americans and that sugar cane is much better from a health perspective — but since when did the government care about that?
