☆ Big Bad Corn (Infographic) ☆

Unless you live under a rock… maybe you do, who am I to know? ;)… then you've at least heard that corn is not so great for you. You've hopefully heard about High Fructose Corn Syrup and it's terrible effects on health and obesity. You've also hopefully heard about the horror of Monsanto and the havoc corn wrecks on the environmental with its monoculture and genetic engineering. 
Well, even if you haven't (which if you haven't you certainly should look into--watch Food Inc.), you'll learn something from this infographic. Interesting information and visually interesting to read, what's not to love about infographics? 

Big Bad Corn

Thanks to our friends over LearnStuff for this informative infographic. 

What bothers me is the huge surge of people getting mad at corporations for producing bad-for-you products. Yes it sucks, but we have tremendous power to do something about such things. You know, put your money where your mouth is. Avoid HFCS and corn, and if you do want to eat some then opt for local and organic.
