Just boiled it or microwave it with the skin on for 3 minutes each corn and just put ground pepper eat it in a cob.

Corn is only health if its Organic, look up the dangers of GE Corn you may want to reconsider eating it again and the millions of products GE corn is in.

Oh i just love the natural sweetness of corn and i love it even more that i know how healthy it is ;-)

Usually when I prepare it, I boil it for about 7-10 min (just until it gets soft)
Then, if I have a bbq, I will wrap it in aluminum foil and grill it for 5-7 min, until it gets a bit grilled.
Then I remove them, wait for them to cool a bit and add the following:
1. a little bit of butter
2. salt & pepper
3. a dash of chat masala (indian spice)
4. fresh squeezed lime or lemon but lime is better

It's yummy ;-)

Corn is a grain, or seed. Vegetables are typically considered as edible parts of plants other than seeds or fruits; however, the word 'vegetable' is not a scientific definition, so the application of the word is arbitrary.

The color of the corn has nothing to do with being genetically modified or not as previously mentioned. Nor does the color determine its sweetness.
