Yesterday, I told you
that the Corn Refiners Association has petitioned the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be able to change the name of high fructose corn syrup to corn sugar. The name change is supposed to stop consumer confusion, but it seems to me that it will just confuse consumers into thinking that high fructose corn syrup is no longer in their foods.
Joe Mohr, the cartoonist behind Hank D and the Bee, has his own take on it in today’s cartoon titled “Misleading Titles.” He gave me permission to share the cartoon with my readers. It gets political, so remember; the cartoonist is entitled to his opinion just like you are.
Hank D and the Bee is a weekly environmental cartoon series from Joe Mohr. He can be found at www.JoeMohrToons.com and @GreenCartoons on twitter.
