Yes, even as a diabetic, I think corn is healthy and a good part of a rounded diet. Some diabetics avoid corn but they are missing out on large amounts of Vitamin A, B6, iron and other nutrients. I like that you mentioned cooking corn releases more vitamins, I believe the same is true of tomatoes and potatoes. Thanks for busting the myths.

Eighty-five percent of the corn produced in the United States is genetically modified, according to the Center for Food Safety. To produce a genetically modified organism or GMO, scientists take genes from one plant or animal and insert them into the DNA of another. The technology of genetic engineering can produce crops that grow faster and larger and that are more resistant to herbicides and disease. The disadvantages of GMO sweet corn are potential dangers to human health and the environment.
Sweet corn that has been genetically modified is generally resistant to herbicides and possesses its own built-in pesticide, called Bacillus thuringiensis or Bt. When insects ingest GMO corn, the Bt contained in the corn kills the pests. Although this built-in toxin offers a significant advantage to farmers because it eliminates the need to spray crops with pesticides, it also means humans are consuming Bt with every bite of corn.
