Yes, sugars can be very attractive to water, metabolically. Read into that: *all* sugars, not just HFCS. It's the worst, and the most popular in current thought. But most sugars can have similar effects.
And you're right - it's in EVERYthing. Not only that, but manufacturers have found insidious little methods of naming a variety of sugars so they can list them separately in their ingredient lists without our being aware that the majority of what's in our processed foods is *sugar*.
The FDA (or whoever regulates such things) really ought to make them 'fess up.

they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
