Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: High-fructose corn syrup, the sweetener used in most carbonated beverages in the United States, drew very little attention over its 30-year history until the past two years, when some researchers in the nutrition community claimed that it bears a unique responsibility for the current obesity epidemic. Such claims are largely myths based on misunderstandings of the chemistry, food science, and nutrition of HFCS.
