As use as much? Could you please tell me why 'as' is used before the use in this sentence? "It's an expression we don't maybe [as use as much] in the Asian culture." I looked up on the Internet and found a sentence which seems to have the same structure. "Kokkalis is a firm believer that good health begins with good nutrition. She encourages women to eat healthy, wholesome foods and [as use as much] organic meats and produce as possible." --Is "as use as much" a set phrase or a pattern in a sentence? And when do you use it?

It looks wrong to me. The first 'as' shouldn't be there.

That grammatical structure looks wrong to me, almost as though it were written by a non-native speaker. It should be 'use as much' without the first 'as'. Did you only find those two examples online? It sounds horrible, and I'm pretty sure it's wrong.
