Has a great graph showing what happens when, primarily, he gets obese kids to stop drinking anything but water and milk (instead of soda and juice). They stop being obese.
It's similarly bad in High Fructose Corn Syrup and sucrose, but glucose is fine because the feedback loop works fine. Lactose is fine.

Got the video from a blog on the subject.

I've been consuming lots of HFCS again lately. Tonight my dinner was a whole avocado (man that was decadent), sweet potato (with butter), and chicken breast (with salt). With lots of leftovers for tomorrow.
