update on sugar versus hfcs

So about that post I had about sugar versus high fructose corn syrup soft drinks?

mecurtin and kickair8p both linked me to news of a Princeton study on the difference between sugar and high fructose corn syrup with some interesting conclusions.

From kickair8p - High Fructose Corn Syrup Causes Bigger Weight Gain in Rats from Slashdot.

From mecurtin - A sweet problem: Princeton researchers find that high-fructose corn syrup prompts considerably more weight gain published at News at Princeton.

Fascinating.

(This testing cycle ends tomorrow. We have a another one right on top, but I already finished my prework. My joy is very joyful.)

ETA:

From khalanasa, an alternate take on the study, HFCS Makes Rats Fat by Marion Nestle, who points out some inconsistencies in the experiment and results.
