...is there REALLY a difference?
Corn sugar (HFCS) is chemically modified and there are studies showing that it has a negative impact on the metabolism that does not occur with pure sugar (sucrose). It's a journal article, so I can't link it directly, but search the net for Bocarsly, Powell, Avena and Hoebel, "High-fructose corn syrup causes characteristics of obesity in rats: Increased body weight, body fat and triglyceride levels" and you should be able to find some free references to it. Corn syrup is also more insidious - you'll find it in a lot of food you'd never think to have any kind of sugar in it - so overall you eat far more of it than you would if you were consciously monitoring your intake of sugar. If you start watching for it, you'll realize you're probably consuming hundreds of extra calories a day all in corn syrup.
