ABSTRACT
The article reports on the proposal of Florida State House of Representative member Juan Zapata to ban the state's school districts from selling or using products containing high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as sweeteners, in 2006. Zapata is joined in the effort by State Senator Gwen Margolis. Both claim that students who consume foods and drinks made with HFCS are more likely to become obese and develop type 2 diabetes. However, the proposed legislation is generating considerable debate in the food industry.
