[G]overnment is putting itself in the uncomfortable position of subsidizing both the costs of treating Type 2 diabetes and the consumption of high-fructose corn syrup. . . . [C]onfined feeding operations . . . are encouraged by a farm policy that subsidizes the commodity crops fed to meat animals. If grain were more expensive, farmers would be encouraged to shift to grass feeding rather than feedlots.
Government is also considering taxing the high fructose corn syrup contained in sodas -- derived from government-subsidized corn.
