US Corn Refiners seek to sweeten image through product rename

"High fructose corn syrup, essentially a liquid alternative to sugar that is derived from corn kernels, is known in Europe as glucose–fructose syrup or isoglucose. Thousands of popular foods, ranging from crisps to bread products, sweets and prepared meals, contain the ingredient. But sales have fallen sharply in the US amid attacks on the substance by campaigners who link it to America's twin epidemics of obesity and diabetes."

(Andrew Clark, 15 September 2010, The Guardian)

NeverSeconds blogger Martha Payne school dinner photo ban lifted

"A controversial ban preventing a nine–year–old girl from photographing her school meals has been lifted following a storm of protest on the internet. Martha Payne, from Argyll, has now recorded more than three million hits on her NeverSeconds blog. Argyll and Bute Council said press coverage of the blog had led catering staff to fear for their jobs. But council leader Roddy McCuish later told the BBC he had instructed senior officials to lift the ban immediately. The schoolgirl's father, David Payne, who helped her set up the blog, welcomed the decision. Martha began publishing photographs of her Lochgilphead Primary School lunches on 30 April. Martha Payne's father, David: ''It (the ban) was disappointing''. She gave each meal a 'food–o–meter' and health rating, and counted the number of mouthfuls it took her to eat it."
