Is this a real thing?
Do people whore themselves out for their next sugar fix? What are the physical dangers? Withdrawal symptoms?
Once I started noticing corn syrup in things like bread, spaghetti sauce, cans of refried beans, yeah it's not too hard to believe people go mental or suffer a withdrawal if they go without. Processed sugar is in so many things these days.
The same people who complain about corn syrup claim that it's healthy to eat fruit/drink smoothies. Fructose is fructose, regardless of source, and needs to be processed by your liver, leading to visceral fat deposits.
There are different definitions of addiction depending on which psychologist/doctor/scientist you ask. Sugar fulfills some of the criteria:
>Difficulty controlling intake
>Continued use despite negative side effects
>Continued, failed attempts at breaking the habit
But it's not an actual addictive drug.
Yes, sugar "addiction" is a thing, just like anything that fucks with brain chemicals and shit. No, it's not like smack and people don't suck dick in subway bathrooms for a fucking Snickers.
Corn syrup is illegal in food grade products pretty much everywhere in the West except the US. Those hipster fucks who go on about Mexican Coca Cola, it's because not even the Sombreros put that shit in the Coke because it's illegal.
>literally shittier food than the India of North America

While national laws in Europe might differ, there is no ban on HFCS in the European Union.
yeah, except what I said is accurate and not just a play on words
honey has the same ratio of fructose:glucose as HFCS, there are trace amounts of a few other sugars present too, but they are pretty insignificant
That's not the problem, anon. Of course if you have a reasonable amount of corn syrup it won't hurt you. But it's being added to anything and everything, and it adds up. Is that hard to understand?
