If we are to believe recent research, eg Lustig, 2009, we need not worry too much about glucose, except the calories, but should be taxing all fructose (including sucrose) heavily. I would like to see The Center for Science in the Public Interest helping to spread the word on fructose.

FDA Asked to Determine Safe Levels of Added Sugars
By Cara Adler
The Center for Science in the Public Interest has petitioned the FDA to set limits for safe amounts of added sugars in foods and beverages.
Citing America's overconsumption of sugar and its contribution to obesity, heart disease, and other health problems, the petition requests that the FDA:
determine safe levels of added sugars and amend rules to set limits accordingly;
include added sugars in Nutrition Facts labels;
conduct educational campaigns to encourage people to consume less sugar;
work with the food industry to reduce added sugars.
