Eat Corn, Feel the Pain

Remember when we were younger and would often find worms in the corn when we were peeling it to eat or boil? Why don’t we see them any more?

Man in their infinite wisdom has genetically modified nearly all corn. “They” have modified corn to grow the pesticides directly into the corn kernel itself so worms won’t eat it. Could worms be smarter then human’s?

I find corn to cause increases in the stress hormone cortisol. Most of the people I work with have far more of this hormone circulating then they should just getting through our daily stressful lives. Corn makes it worse and causes a weakness in the muscles that support the knees, ankles and low back.  It also wreaks havoc on the digestive system which can cause spasms in the flank area muscle in the low back. I will have virtually guaranteed low back pain the morning after consuming a food which contains corn.  It is also one of the most common trigger foods for ovarian cysts.
