Jacques makes his way to the United States to investigate the story of High Fructose Corn Syrup. The sweetener was championed during 1970s by Richard Nixon’s Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz to make use of the excess corn grown by farmers. British nutritionist John Yudkin was one of the first to raise the dangers of sugar but his findings were discredited in the United States at the time. During 1970s Britain, food manufacturers used advertising campaigns to promote the idea of snacking between meals.
