Campbell's Tomato Soup: BEWARE!
So the girlfriend cooks me a nice old school dinner last night that I havent had in forever: Grilled cheese and tomato soup. I havent had this in ages, so it was a nice little splurge. Anyway, after finishing off the sandwich, I go to taste the soup and it tastes disturbingly sweet. I got up and and checked out the ingredient list on the can...and what's the second ingredient?
FREAKING HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP!!!
I was so irritated I dumped my whole bowl of soup down the drain. The TV is plastered with commercials about all the healthy, great 'possibilites' of campbell's Tomato Soup - a wholesome meal for kids, etc. My ass!! The government and the media go haywire trying to ban every anabolic supplement under the sun, while the Campbell's Soup Company sets up our nation's youth for a lifetime of Type 2 Diabetes. Why the hell do you need to sweeten tomato soup anyway!??!!
Sorry to go off, but this really pisses me off. You can't eat ANYTHING without running into that crap. Why don't they take all that damn corn and process into ethanol so we can have some cheaper fuel?

what kills me is cereals. those things are loaded with simple sugars; even raisin bran (my fav.) has a high glycemic load. i stick with wheaties if im in a hurry now.

Yeah, Grape Nuts for me if I dont have time to cook oatmeal or brown rice. Its just so frustrating - there's not even a need to sweeten a lot of the food being sold, and yet they dump HFCS in it anyway.
Maybe when a famous athlete ends up contracting Type2 diabetes from ingesting too much processed sugars, the media will make a huge deal of it and the FDA will emegency schedule HFCS.

If everyone in washington were avid about physical fitness and being strong and healthy it wouldnt be an issue. But most of them are a bunch of fat, lazy, greedy bastards. Why would they want to ban cigarettes or the over-use of processed sugars in foods? Or start promoting ethanol as an alternative to oil? (most modern cars can run on straight ethanol without any modifications!!) Because it would cause a massive chain reaction where people wouldnt be so dependant on the big industries of oil, tobacco, and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Where would Merck or Pfizer chemical be if everyone in the US took their health seriously?Come on, you dont love the fact that Mcdonalds has more advertising than any other company?

We still need drugs in this day and age, no doubt. Just an example: think about the billions of dollars in profit made off the sale of over-priced high blood pressure medication. A condition that can usually be treated with diet and exercise. Our government and this economy NEED McDonalds. If nobody got sick and everyone were in shape, the whole economy would collapse

Its becoming the same in the Uk, i picked up some Baxters lentil soup the other day, low cal, just to dump my chicken breasts into for a bit of a change. I bought them in a rush and not until later discovered the sugar... Why!
Best one i have seen yet was raisens in my local supermarket..... covered in a hydrogenated vegatable oil glaze... to make em nice and shiny!

You can't buy anything packaged nowadays because all of the **** manufacters throw in there to improve taste. Pfft! Taste is overrated anyways.

I avoid that crap at all costs. It seems to be in damn near everything though. My son is 19 months old, my wife will buy him "100%" juice that is loaded with this crap. I have to constantly educate her how bad this is for him and pretty much everybody else.
