Maybe the corn council should hire me!

I was reading about different methods of cooking butternut squash and wondering if cooking it in the microwave killed nutrients when I suddenly thought, hmmm, I wonder if HFCS & Mircrowaves became popular around the same time. What if it is actually the use of Microwaves & not HFCS that caused the sudden upswing in obesity in Americans. So I went and looked and I’ll be darned if they didn’t become widely used at the same time!

” The countertop microwave oven was first introduced in 1967 by the Amana Corporation, which had been acquired in 1965 by Raytheon.”

The production process of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), was developed in Japan in the 1960s and became popular with manufactured foods in the late 1970s.
