Eliminate Corn For Better Health

This was information that I was lucky enough to learn many years ago and as that time began the task to learn how to eliminate corn for better health.  You see I was told that cows were fed corn to fatten them up.  I was already struggling with carrying  an extra 100 lbs.  so I didn’t really need any extra help to gain more weight. As I have continued this journey I have since learned that corn gluten is as big of a health issue as wheat gluten. Even more important to eliminate corn now.

I began eliminating corn with the obvious food items, like corn on the cob, soft drinks.  Yet at that time it was not clear to me that corn, just like wheat and gluten is in everything! According to Dr. Osborne: (Source)

  • Much of the processed gluten free junk frood (Frankenfood) is derived from genetically modified corn.
  • There is a huge increase in patients with refractory celiac disease (these people do not respond to a traditional gluten free diet.)
  • Multiple studies have shown that traditional gluten free diets fail to heal patients even after many years on the diet.
  • Corn is used in the production of sweeteners, shampoos, soaps, plastics, fuels, etc.  The potential for cross contamination is dangerously high.
  • There are more studies showing that corn gluten is a problem than there are studies showing that it is not.
  • All of our domesticated farm animals are fed staple diets of genetically modified corn.  Our meat and dairy industry revolves around this.

Don’t fool yourself if you eat corn and feel OK today!  Learn from Dr. Osborne in this video why you will want to eliminate corn for better health even if you think it is not a health issue:

Here is a link to Hidden Corn Based Ingredients

Now Dr. Hyman also discusses corn as High Fructose Corn Syrup.  “The goal of the corn industry is to call into question any claim of harm from consuming high fructose corn syrup, and to confuse and deflect by calling their product natural “corn sugar”. That’s like calling tobacco in cigarettes natural herbal medicine.”     Around the discussion of corn and HFCS he says the following: (Source)

The real issues are only two.

  • We are consuming HFCS and sugar in pharmacologic quantities never before experienced in human history–140 pounds a year versus 20 teaspoons a year 10,000 years ago.
  • High fructose corn syrup is always found in very poor-quality foods that are nutritionally vacuous and filled with all sorts of other disease promoting compounds, fats, salt, chemicals, and even mercury.

The reasons to eliminate corn for better health are many especially even you like me have struggled with issues like gluten sensitivity, or weight issues.  This is one ingredient that can be simply taken out of the diet by eating real food, not packaged processed food or (FROOD).  Eliminate corn by drinking water rather than soft drinks and many juice drinks.

    Although I can eat pretty much anything NOW (I was highly allergic to many foods when a child but outgrew them) whole corn kernels do not seem to be able to be digested by my body so maybe they have something here. Of course now that I am a diabetic I have to watch my sugar/carb intake anyway.

    Having had candida, I watch anything that I put into my mouth. Corn is loaded with sugars so that is one of the things they say not to eat. I do eat it now, but sparingly.

    I completely agree that the ways in which corn is processed and used essentially as a “filler” to lower costs for the food industry is so unhealthy and really troubling. That said, there is a lot of nutritional value in fresh corn that hasn’t been slathered in butter and salt. Fresh, organic corn has a different effect on your body than when it is used in the other ways that you detailed.

    Such an interesting read! My husband is gluten intolerant, but looves cornbread. That would be a tough one to give up!

    I eliminated corn from my diet because the DR said it was high in sugar content, which I am supposed to watch because I am a type 2 diabetic. I miss eating it because I LOVE the taste of it.

    Alas, I guess I shouldn’t be eating it for other reasons, too.

    Thanks for the information!

    It really amazes me just how much corn they put into everything these days. Especially foods you wouldn’t think should have it at all. Or pet foods even! Does that make sense to anyone? Not me.
    When we lived in Germany, I was surprised to find that as a culture they don’t eat corn at all. It is solely for their pigs and other farm livestock of such. Interesting right?

      Thank you so much for sharing that in Germany they don’t eat corn! Just for the farm animals. Here in North America corn is simply a cheap food, low quality food that is best to be eliminated from the diet for better health. Thanks for connecting.

    I had heard that corn syrup can be really damaging and even dangerous for your healt. I have been looking out for that since then. But I’m lucky to live in Ecuador with no genetically modified corn (at least yet).

    We have reduced our processed food use in our home. I believe that fresh corn is not bad for you though, maybe because I love corn. I eat it quite often and it has not had any impact on my weight – luckily.

    I’m not sure if I can do this no matter how much better my life would be. We love corn and if I could have it every night with dinner I would. 🙂

    We try to buy our corn fresh from the market. I am not sure we could give up corn {unless we had to}, so I hope that makes a difference.

    I always knew corn wasn’t the most healthy thing to eat – though I know I have truly love munching on them before – not so much now that I am health conscious.

    Corn is in everything! I guess it’s super versatile, but I would have a hard time trying to eliminate it completely because it’s used in so many ways. This is super interesting though, and I’m going to delve deeper.

    I have suffered from PCOS and hormonal imbalance for a couple of years now and I believe it is food related (not eating issue). I believe eating fresh corn is not a problem. The problem is the by product of corn that we unknowingly consume while we eat processed food. I try to avoid processed food as much as I can, but sometimes it is difficult.
