You would have to say the same for nuts, they dont seem to get digested all the time either. As fas as corn goes, I have read that once upon a time, our appenixes were like a bird's gizzard. It would grind up grains and corn. So our bodies could utilize it. So I guess if you are going to eat regular kernal corn, chew it up real good.

The bulk of the corn you eat IS digested, just the outer skin from the kernel is left. If that bothers you, you can always peel each kernel before eating it.

Pepper, and IIRC, cinammon go through your system virtually intact. Pepper poo for dinner and cinammon poo for desert. With a baby in the house, that's a meal Kodo can probably relate to.

Though d corn does not have any nutritive value but its really very very good for our digestive tracks. Eating corn leads to the greasing of the track and helps in preventing those terrible stomach problems...afterall we dont have much time for health problems...so keep munching corn and stay fit... :

The original question is still valid

I would rather eat my own hair, which has turned out to be not as tough and durable as corn, but then very little is!

Like alcohol, you don't consume it, you rent it.

Not totally. Corn IS good for making polka-dotted poo. So festive during the holiday season.

We eat corn because there's nothing else to do with it. Hmm, that reminds me of a joke about two guys lost in the forest and they stumble across an ugly old woman in a cabin and.......... wait a minute, I can't tell that joke here, I'll be banned for sure.

You don't want to know the things I have done in a cornfield
but running nek'd I would rather do backwards.(ouch)

if you actually sat down and thought about what "they" do with corn. . consumption is a very small fraction

but why do people eat it? dunno. . maybe "back in the day" Native americans had bigger and scarier poo. .. .and that just crushed the English manhood

you know, how men are always saying"You should have seen the size of that. ."! and so on. . . .

I think Eddie Murphy explained it best. . but I will leave that out. . .
