Corn, Corn, Everywhere....


An analysis of fast food shows that corn is an enormous component of virtually all fast food products. No surprise there. For goodness sake, I'm eating a raw carrot right now but, with the amount of corn in our food supply, I wouldn't be surprise to find out it's somehow made out of corn.

The part that might surprise you, though:
By analyzing the biochemical makeup of the food, the researchers found that 100 percent and 93 percent of the cows responsible for the hamburgers and chicken sandwiches had lived on exclusively corn-based diets.
Let's hope that was intended to be "cows and chickens", because otherwise I really don't want to know how McNuggets are made....
