C is for Corn

Go corn-free…we don’t mean corn-on-the-cob, we mean corn-fed meat, corn-sweetened juice and pop, corn-oiled salad dressings, crackers and cereals with corn, corn syrups, corn solids, corn starches and more GMO, processed food product! Corn-stuff is in way too much of our food and everyday products, especially from packages and restaurants. Corn has many ways of disguising itself, so get familiar with its different names and look for it on ingredient lists. Corn has been found in dryer sheets, instant coffee, contact lens solution, different cheeses and even some toothpastes! It may be challenging to steer clear from it all, but you won’t believe how avoiding it will change your life (and our world).
