Corn converts quickly to sugar and so it is best avoided. It is also a grain, not a vegetable. Grains are harder to digest, in general. Avoid eating too much corn. Corn is everywhere!:

*High Fructose Corn Syrup (avoid is completely), even worse is crystallized fructose which is supposed to be healthy, but it has a higher concentration of fructose than HFCS!

* The obvious (corn, corn starch, corn meal, corn syrup, etc)

* Corn Derivatives (it’s a long, long list of chemicals, too long to reproduce here)

* Basically any ingredient that doesn’t specify it’s food source. (For example malt can be from corn or barley. Vinegar… guess what the cheapest source is.)

* Scented things like perfume, candles, air freshener, etc

* Cleaning supplies including laundry soap

* Fruits and vegetables (Many are coated with corn wax or oil or washed with water and citric acid. This includes many organic. It makes them shine.)

* Iodized salt (Corn is the glue that makes the iodine stick)

* Dairy products (Any milk with vitamins (most have A and D) use a corn derivative to help them “stick”. Plus most US milk is corn fed and it does pass through with the protein intact. Grass fed is best!)

* Meat (Most wrappers are dusted with corn to prevent them from sticking. Also any added colors or flavor solutions often contain corn.)

* Eggs (Corn oil rubbed on the shells, which are porous, so it can get through)

* Bread (Besides the obvious they can be cooked on corn meal so it sticks to the crust… and not labeled as containing corn)

* Medicine (Cornstarch is used as a filler in a lot of pills and capsules)

* Gasoline (A lot is now 10% or more ethanol.)

* I believe a lot is also GM

So, don’t over do it on corn.
