A Conversation With King Corn

January 8, 2008 | By More

Cooking up a story has an interesting series with with filmmaker Curt Ellis about his new documentary “King Corn“.

Surprisingly, corn is present in some form or another, in almost everything on the American plate. And, none more so, than through the food ingredient “high fructose corn syrup” (HFCS).

Is it a good idea to have “HFCS” present in so many of our foods without prior public debate, or adequate science to measure its impact on the long-term health of adults, and especially our children? Should our standard meals be unnaturally skewed toward a corn based diet, in the first place?

This interview, along with video clips from the documentary, may not provide the answers here, but it’s a good beginning for further thought and reflection. What do you think?
