Mercury and HFCS

There was a news clip earlier this morning about mercury being in a large amount of food/drinks that contain HFCS (High fructose corn syrup)

This is a quote from an article from
"Almost half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contained mercury, which was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products where HFCS is the first- or second-highest labeled ingredient, according to two new U.S. studies."
"In the first study, researchers found detectable levels of mercury in nine of 20 samples of commercial HFCS. The study was published in current issue of Environmental Health."

I wonder if they will still have the commercials talking about how high fructose corn syrup is fine in moderation.

Anywho, I'm glad we have been avoiding it already for quite some time :) because of my allergy.
