First Your Coke, Now Your Vodka

First, corn made its way, via high fructose corn syrup, into your soda-pop, and now, if researchers Hans van Leeuwen and Jacek Koziel at Iowa State University are successful, you could be drinking corn vodka.

van Leeuwen and Koziel, both affiliated with the Institute for Food Safety and Security at ISU, are figuring out how to cheaply and quickly convert fuel ethanol into the purer, cleaner alcohol that goes into alcoholic drinks, cough medicine, mouth washes and other food-grade alcohol.

To this, we can only say, "Cheers" and "Go Cyclones!"
