Corn in and of itself is not the problem. The problem is American Diets are far too heavily dependent upon corn. Corn is high in Omega 6 fatty acids and not Omega 3s which we've been hearing so much about lately. American diets are so heavily based on corn that our Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio is 25:1 and most nutritionists will tell you you start to see higher incidents of obesity, diabetes and cancer when the ratios are higher than 4:1. Our meat eats mostly corn, our foods are laced with high fructose corn syrup, and it's a very fatty acid. Did you know that cattle in this country consume 70% of the nations antibiotics? This trend started when most cattle were switched from a grass fed diet to a corn fed diet, because the corn is so hard on their stomachs, and is not full of the calcium and nutrients cattle need.
Anyway, that being said, I still eat chicken, beef and corn. What I have done is cut out all High Fructose Corn Syrup which is the worst for us and is in everything from Heinz Ketchup to Wheat Thins. I'm amazed at how much removing HCFS and Trans Fats (partially hydrogenated oils) has helped me feel healthier.
Sorry I'm not trying to be on a soap box but it's kind of scary how much we consume in corn and how NOT good for us corn is. If the only corn in our diets was corn on the cob it wouldn't be an issue!
