On February 11 we misattributed the following quotation to Center for Science in the Public Interest executive director Michael Jacobson: “There’s no substantial evidence to support the idea that high-fructose corn syrup is somehow responsible for obesity … If there was no high-fructose corn syrup, I don’t think we would see a change in anything important.” This was, in fact, said by Dr. Walter Willett (New York Times, July 2, 2006), not Jacobson. We regret the error, but welcome Willett’s firm embrace of common sense.
