Sandy Szwarc is highly skeptical of the “high fructose corn syrup contains mercury” story:
So, the 0.113 ppm of mercury purportedly in HFCS makes even less sense to panic over. Even more, it’s biologically implausible for 0.000113 part per million that might be digested to be dangerous. We’d have to eat impossible quantities to get enough to worry about.
Still sounds like bad news to me, but it only seems fair to link to the opposing argument.
