Princeton HFCS Study

My husband emailed me a press release about a Princeton study that found that rats who ate High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) gained more weight than rats fed sucrose.

Although I do not favor HFCS, this is not one study to rave about.

It is very important not to base my clinical judgement on what I hear in the media. Even if the press release says there is a significant finding. Although it is impossible for me to comb through every new study that comes out, there are other places I can rely on to at least get an idea about the study design. In this case, I looked to Dr. Marion Nestle of Food Politics: HFCS makes rats fat?
