High Fructose Corn Syrup and Ethanol: Why poison our food when they could make fuel?

I am opposed to burning 40% of America's corn crop as car fuel and also opposed to finding high fructose corn syrup in all our food. So why don't "they" use the sugar to make fuel or fatten hogs instead of putting it in our food?
Update: And why doesn't yahoo have a GMO/Monsanto category or a survivalist wacko / prepper category?
What, the 20-something year young geeks live in sterile cubicles and use their ovens to store clothing?
Update 2: @Interro: We don't need hidden sugar in all our food. Why do you think everyone is fat?
