    having grown up in iowa, i have to disagree with corn being one of most destructive foods. as for cattle, then eat grass fed cattle, which is natural to them anyway. however, obviously grass is not available to them in the winter. also, dairy cows require diff stuff than beef cows, so, just sayin...

    Up your iron intake. I was feeling that way, after my morning workout I'd have nothing left. Switched from lettuce to spinach on the advice of my tattoo artist of all people. He was saying lettuce is full of pesticides because it absorbs so much while growing. Raw spinach leaves on everything! Also beans, chickpeas, lentils, etc.

    Agreed! I eat oats, does it make them bad because horses eat them? Certainly not!

    I have always been omnivorous, and since my injury I have been on a high protein, high fiber and low carb diet. It has worked well for me. I was a kid during WWII when sugar was rationed, and never developed a sweet tooth. In fact, some things like Southern sweet tea gag me. Desserts are pretty much limited to holidays or other special occasions. My favorite dishes are Mediterranean type, but always light on cheese. In my own cooking, I use cheeses more as a seasoning rather than a primary ingredient. I do not obsess with my eating. If we are eating out and I see chocolate mousse on the menu, I order it. A piece of dark chocolate in the evening always ends the day with pleasant thoughts and feelings.

    As for corn, I love it. I often use cornflake crumbs instead of bread crumbs in my cooking. The idea that it is animal feed is hog wash. It was the mainstay of native American diets, including those all the way down in South America for centuries. It supported the lives of the earliest settlers from Europe. We started feeding it to animals when we realized how good it was for people. Now diet spin doctors are trying to rewrite history and make it evil.

    The idea that corn is used as animal feed is not hogwash, which is why if you eat meat you have to specifically look to see that it is grass fed. The article I read about fast food meats being mostly corn was put out by Scientific American in 2008. Corn has been used because it is more caloric than grass and puts weight on the cows quickly. The main problem with this is that corn is not a natural part of cows' diets, creating complications which are then treated with antibiotics, which are prevalent in the meat industry. Corn itself is not inherently bad and I myself eat corn on the cob occasionally in the summer, even though it is not easily digestible (hence the whole corn kernels that show up in your poop). A big problem with using corn as feed for the huge amount of animals involved in supplying the meat demand in this country, is that it requires an exorbitant amount of water, fossil fuels and fertilizer, is unnatural for the animals consuming it (not to mention you're missing out on the omega-3's you'd get if the cow had been grass fed, if you eat cows) and causes vast soil degradation. The whole point that even entered corn into the discussion is its use in nearly everything in the form of high fructose corn syrup, and studies have shown that animals consuming the stuff put on weight much more rapidly than when they consume cane sugar. Looking around at my fellow Americans, I can say those tests are probably pretty accurate.

    I think the problem with both wheat and corn as far as human health is modern plant breeding that has radically changed them in order to maximize specific traits like yield or disease resistance. People are just starting to research why so many folks have gluten intolerance. Modern varieties seem to be part of the problem.

    The corn you eat today is nothing like what you ate as a kid.
