Matthew asks: Do you think corn is healthy?


Absolutely, yes. Wash it in water in its husk, part dry it and roast in it the oven at 170 C for 30 minutes. When ready, sprinkle a bit of ground Himalaya sea salt. Let it cool right down (usually) and enjoy!
From my experience, I know it has positive impact on both left-arm and right arm blood pressure, bowel movement and energy level. Better to have it earlier on in the day though; otherwise, if you eat it regularly, you'll probably see a rise in fasting blood sugar.

I do think it's healthy. Thanks for all the info. I'm sick of everyone jumping on these anti-this and anti-that bandwagons. Don't tell me how horrible corn is for you and then drink some type of canned energy drink. Please.

Yes corn is healthy. In most third world country they make it into a porridge and start giving it to baby by the third month of birth. This corn porridge is to help baby develop healthy.

Yes. We have to eat. Food is what keeps us alive &healthy. With yhsg being said we have to always be careful of how much we are eating of any food.
I read here that we should not eat corn more than 24 hours out of fields. Well I don't think that's young yo happen. We all buy Corn straight from the groscery store. So who knows how long the
corn has been there at the produce department. So u are telling us that ar are receiving no health
Benefit ?. Please respond.
thank you!
