I remember being a kid who hated vegetables. I hated tomatoes, hated anything green, hated eggplant. I thought corn was a vegetable (it’s really a grain) so when asked “What’s your favorite vegetable?” I would respond with “corn.”
Now, I’m not anti-corn, but I do see that it’s in almost every single food product out there, which makes it difficult for me to eat because I have an allergy to corn. It’s kind of annoying. Like trying to avoid an ex-boyfriend who seems to be everywhere you are.

Is corn bad? I don’t think it is, but I just can’t eat too much of it.
Corn has definitely gotten a bad rap, especially because of ethanol production (the purported “clean” fuel) and the deforestation that occurs as a result, and also because of the weight-gaining, diabetes causing, mercury containing high fructose corn syrup found in so many processed foods.
Maybe I’ve had eczema for so long because everything I’ve ever eaten has contained corn.
