We will start with a little mild mellow drama

poi·son  
/ˈpoizən/

Noun
A substance that, when introduced into or absorbed by a living organism, causes death or injury, esp. one that kills by rapid action.

All things in moderation folks but never forget that high Fructose Corn Syrup is an unnatural substance. The smallest dose leads to the increased production of insulin, causing instantaneous insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is the cause of Type 2 Diabetes.

Here is a link to a very interesting series of lectures on how and why the obese in the developed world are undeniable victims of a system designed to keep people eating the foods that are making them sick.

I can not stress enough the flimsy façade of the justification that a lack personal responsibility is the strongest contributing factor to obesity. Robert Lustig outlines why the farse is faulty in this series focusing on sugar.

Read Labels, refuse to buy products that contain HFCS, and complain to your favourite food companies when HFCS is added to your eatings. Every drop sucked out of the grocery store is a dime in your pocket when you consider the rising costs of government sponsored medical care demanded by the obesity epidemic.
