Matthew asks: Do you think corn is healthy?


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!

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.
