Corn and corn products...like all carbohydrates...are nothing more than sugar molecules bonded together to look like a carb. When ingested, the bonds are broken down and it is similiar to eating table sugar. And then, of course, your blood sugar goes way up and your pancreas secret insulin to control the blood sugar and if you don't use that energy immediately, your body will store the unused energy in your cells as fat. Repeat this process daily and your pancreas will eventually poop out and will not be able to produce enough insulin. You have just arrived at type II diabetes and if your pancreas totally stop producing insulin, then you are a type I diabetic. You then need to inject insulin to control the blood sugar for the rest of your life.
This progression doesn't happen to everyone on the planet. But look at the obesity epidemic, the cardio vascular disease epidemic, the diabetic epidemic, the increasing rate of Alzheimer's...what do you think? Do you want to go down that road on the chance your body will take the wrong fork in the road?
For something crunchy, buy fresh jicama. Refrigerate and then slice and dice, squeeze lemon on the chunks and sprinkle iodized salt. A good snack that is loaded with inulin that will help heal the gut.
