High Fructose Makes Ninth-Grader Fat

Story About an Overweight Teenager

Ninth-grader DeAndre Patrick of Oxford has an admitted sweet tooth, and at 265 pounds and 6 feet tall, it shows.

"Sprite, Power-Ade, Vault, Fanta, Pepsi and Coke. I've been drinking them all my life, since I was 2," DeAndre said.

In addition to being morbidly obese this kid had two abscessed teeth, one of which had to be pulled. His mom, who used to put soda in his baby bottle, is a moron.

Again, this article argues that too many of any calories make you fat which is a true statement. But it is not a relevant point as to whether HFCS is a problem or not.
