And You Thought Corn was Good for You.

Ah, corn! It was the first vegetable I ever fell in love with, when I was just a youngster hiding ‘eaten’ peas in my napkin at the dinner table.
But what of this? It sounds like corn is a huge contributor to our poor diets (if we’re fast-food consumers). And it promotes environmental damage!? See “Fast Food: Just Another Name for Corn” via Wired.com.
After seeing this, I may have to give more thought to all those ‘fresh/quick’ fast-food chains that claim to be healthy, nutritious, and natural (i.e. Panera, one of my favorites). While food on menus may sound appealing, we should really consider the source and diet of the animals that we’re about to consume.
In truth, this makes me more nervous than mad cow scares.
