Further to my post about "The Center for Consumer Freedom", and to their campaign to spin how HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) is good for you, I just did a little bit of research about this group and it turns out that it is a front group doing dirty work for the tobacco, alcohol and restaurant industry.  Google them and you’ll learn they systematically oppose the work of independent scientists, doctors and health advocates

Their mission is reminiscent of the bad-for-you-food-products-industry-backed version of the cigarette lobby of the 70s….

…oh, and now I learned why: The very same people running this group got off the ground with a donation from Philip Morris.
