Corn from the farm is healthy "corn on the cob" canned corn is less healthy.

I wish I could eat corn, but I had lab tests done, and I am highly sensitive to it. So, I guess it's not good for everyone. I would never have known it was harming me if I had not gotten the blood test done.

One of the benefits of corn that was not mentioned is the high calcium content. If prepared properly, corn meal is very high in calcium which is easily absorbed by the body, making corn an excellent source of this vital mineral.

Sweet corn is almost available anywhere you shop a well stocked market, not only is sweet corn nutritious it has many health benefits that out weight any un-healthy rumors. I incorporated more vegetables into my diet, and can say for real that corn does help beyond any doubt of what more vegetables can do to help improve one's health, I improved my blood pressure and weight and feel much better having made a choice of a variety of vegetables added to my meals and less refined food products. Sweet corn is now included on my menu as well as other colorful vegetables, so that I can enjoy a healthy future of sound nutrition.

You only get what you pay for in cat food. If the food is cheap then so are the indeigrents. Learn to read indeigrents. Like Human food they are listed in descending order. If your cat food starts off the listing with whole grain ground corn then you are feeding trash. Cats are carnivores of the highest order. They are not herbivores or even omnivores. There are many premium cat foods out there Science Diet isn't one of them. In the first three indeigrents Corn is listed along with Pork Fat which is what is sprayed on the food to make it palatable. My favorites are Innova EVO, Chicken Soup for the cat lovers soul, and Felidae Cat and Kitten formula. NONE of these even mention corn let alone have it as the bulk of the indeigrents. NONE of these foods that I use were mentioned in the cat food recall fiasco
