That said, I've read so many things in the past year about the possible sugar and cancer connection. My husband's onc told us there wasn't any. But there are a lot of researchers out there who think otherwise. I don't know what to think.
Are any of you avoiding sugar or other sweeteners because of this?

The ads have a pointer to a "FAQ" with their counter to some of the negative research/opinion about HFCS. Here is a pointer that I just ran across:
http://www.sweetsurprise.com/myths-and-facts/faqs-high-fructose-corn-syrup. I'm just passing this along -- I am personally about equally skeptical of this material and the anti-HFCS propaganda. The most interesting claim in the "FAQ", for me, is that HFCS and ordinary table sugar have nearly the same amount of fructose.
