I'm sticking to sugar.

You know that mercury-in-corn-syrup thing that no one seems to be talking about? Here's a list of the most dangerous products. Quaker oats, huh? Who knew?

No. no. Not Quaker Oats - Quaker Oats TO GO. You scared me.

I just have ordinary rolled oats, not the kill-you-now-with mercury kind. Whew!

Makes me glad that I don't eat all of those things on the list though!

Actually, have you read this article?

She says the media is hyping the story to scare the general populace. Fear sells and all that. I don't necessarily disbelieve her, although I do note that the foods on that list are clearly well over the safety limits.

I think I'll stick with sugar as well.

Interesting, but I'm sure you're with me on this point: Bottom line, it's crappy for us, it's crappy for the planet. If it also has mercury, no matter WHAT the amount, I'm not eating it. (Preaching to the choir, I know...)
