The next day, I asked the pharmacist at work "why oh why is this in my product." The answer is that it's a delivery agent. Then I started asking, "could I work with the right folks and invent something without HFCS?" Yes, but I'd need a lot of funding.
This is still on my mind ... there is nothing on the market. One mom told me to choose my green battles. Yes, I don't give my son generic ibuprofen everyday! I know it helps the medicine go down! But I am so [insert that bad word] mad!
Susan from Practically Green has a great post about this on their blog about her feelings on it. She was just as shocked as I to find parabens, HFCS, Sodium Benzoate, artificial colors and Propylene Glycol in her child's Tylenol.
