JUDGE DISMISSES HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP CASE
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

A federal judge in Buffalo, New York has dismissed a case which claimed a 14-year-old girl contracted type 2 diabetes from consuming high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

The suit filed last June against several corn refiners alleged they were selling a product they knew to be "dangerous, life-threatening and a cause of type 2 diabetes."

Judge William Skretny of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York ruled the plaintiff did not prove HFCS was dangerous, that it caused the diabetes and could not "connect her disease to the actions of any one defendant."

Food Navigator-USA reports the plaintiff, the mother of the teenager sought $5 million in damages.
