Why is corn in so much of our food?

    It’s cheap, easy to grow, and its sugars sweeten things that people like to be sweet.

    Corn is overproduced along with cotton, soybeans, and peanuts because the U.S. government subsidizes production of these crops to excess.  When corn began to be overproduced a market was created for the excess corn.  This is when the corn based feedlot system for cattle was created. Companies and universities also developed corn syrup that became widely used as a food additive.  This is literally fueling the obesity and diabetes epidemic in children across the U.S.
