  •  The amount of fructose to glucose in sucrose (0+ / 0-)

    is 100% (50/50 x 100%).

    In HFCS it is 122.2222222(add 2's to infinity)% (55/45 x 100%).

    Then subtracting 100 from 122.2 (note the restrained use of decimal points) you get that HFCS is 22.2% worse.

    It's not really rocket science.

    •  Again, it's quantity. 5 grams a day isn't a (0+ / 0-)

      big deal. 50 or 500 is. The precision of your calc is swamped by the bigger picture. We can handle small amounts, not glugging 7-11 mega slurpies.

      Same for radioactive nucleotides, no? Dose is relevant in both cases.
