Matthew asks: Do you think corn is healthy?


Corn is yummy...Everything in moderation. It taste good but i would not eat it everyday. I think it is healthy if you don't over eat it.

Yes. People have been eating corn for thousands of years. It was their staple diet.

I love it...having some organic frozen corn tonight, with a hamburger w/onions, organic spring garden salad...and mango for dessert. I eat everything that's good for you and tasty...keeps me happy, and slim, and other women jealous.

Corn has certainly had a bad rap and you still want to get it as fresh as possible or frozen to reduce exposure to mold toxins that are very common with it. Check out its nutrition profile at NutritionData, its very nutritious (43%B1, 53% magnesium, 53%B6 and 24%Zinc per cup for example)

The whole thing with salt and butter being bad is nonsense though. There is absolutely no genuine clinical studies that support such claims. Butter raises HDL and nourishes the brain and salt is made up a two vital nutrients. Chloride is essential for the production of stomach acid and a low salt diet actually causes digestive problems. There is absolutely no real science behind these claims, just studies involving very sketchy and unreliable sources and no clinical, double-blind studies.
