A particular type of sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup has caused a big commotion of late. New York City Mayor Bloomberg has banned the sale of mammoth sugary soft drinks. Mayor Bloomberg's logic was simple; 
A. Too much sugar is a key driver of weight gain
B. Excessive weight gain leads to obesity 
C. Obesity leads to diabetes and heart disease 

The Mayor recently learned that obesity is the second leading cause of preventable premature death, killing 5,800 New Yorkers annually, and it's the only public health issue in America that is getting worse. One in three adult New Yorkers has diabetes or is pre-diabetic and it's costing the big apple over $6 billion a year.
Is HFCS Poison?
Most people don't see Sugar as dangerous or in need of regulation. However, all alcohol is regulated and alcohol is fermented sugar. Some sugars cause the same type of organ damage as alcohol. 

High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) is an ingredient in nearly all foods including baby formula, soft drinks, bread, etc.  It turns to fat 7x faster than any other sugar and creates Uric Acid as a byproduct of the digestive process. Uric Acid, by the way is the cause of gout. 
According to Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric endocrinologist at UC San Francisco HFCS is poison!
