A recent chemical analysis of fast food from 6 major U.S. cities revealed corn molecules turned up in almost everything; from hamburgers to chicken sandwiches. Via National Geographic News:
Out of the hundreds of meals that we bought, there were only 12 servings of anything that did not go straight back to a corn source," said study lead author Hope Jahren, a geobiologist at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
Corn's dominance in the nation's fast food is well known, "but the [chemical analysis] really bring it home in a way that hasn't been brought home before," said Craig Cox, Midwest vice president for the nonprofit Environmental Working Group.
More reason to avoid fast food! Now, corn is cool, but don’t base your diet on it. Humans should eat a biologically diverse diet, lots of DIFFERENT fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and beans.
