I wasn't sure whether to believe the whole 'HFCS' debate or not, but wow, it looks like you might be correct. I'd be interested to hear what the exact physiology of this is - why would the liver preferentially covert fructose to fat and deposit it, when this doesn't happen with sucrose, glucose, galactose etc?
Clearly the researches don't know what's going on either. Interesting read if you have access to pubmed
