Recent Reports Regarding Mercury and High Fructose Corn Syrup Flawed and Misleading
Date:1/30/2009

international authorities (FDA, United Kingdom Food Standards Agency and others) have found similar or higher levels of mercury in common components of a typical human diet. (FDA, 2006; Ysart et al, 2000) -- IATP assumes that the total mercury they detected in a questionably small sampling of consumer foods is primarily the result of high fructose corn syrup; an assumption that has not been properly tested or validated. In fact, the authors do not attempt to characterize whether there may be mercury in any other ingredients contained within the consumer products tested, even while the recipes for the items studied may have had multiple sources of potential contamination. As we have mentioned, very small amounts of mercury are practically ubiquitous in our society. -- IATP demonstrates a gross lack of understanding of the current state of knowledge of the different forms of mercury and their effect on the human body. This is illustrated in their statement that "The mercury found in HFCS may be a different form of mercury than the methylmercury typically found in fish (we just don't know), but it poses a risk just the same. Mercury in any form can be toxic to the developing brain." (Wallinga et al, 2009). The ATSDR (Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry) is a sister agency of the Centers for Disease Control, and regularly provides reviews of chemicals in our society that may pose a risk to human health. Regarding mercury, it is clear that inorganic forms are considered to be much less dangerous to humans than organic forms, with absorption generally at least ten times less (ATSDR, Public Health Statement on Mercury, 1999).
