I have a good news for health. It is about corn. I like to eat corn..so I think it is nice for me to add it in my blog too.
Corn is not just another carbohydrate. Even though it's a grain, it provides the benefits of a vegetable: Not only is it a good source of fiber, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium and phosphorous, but it's also rich in disease-fighting antioxidants. Recent studies by Rui Hai Liu, a food scientist at Cornell University, have shown that corn contains more antioxidants than wheat, oats or rice, and that the antioxidants in corn can survive longer in the digestive system than those of some fruits and vegetables, potentially offering greater protection against some cancers. Liu's research has also revealed that cooking corn for 25 minutes can increase its antioxidant powers by almost 50 percent.—Carla Ranicki
