By avoiding corn, you avoid a typically genetically-modified product. But corn is so pervasive in our society that in order to NOT eat it, you have to be on the lookout for these ingredients, among others:
cellulose, xylitol, calcium stearate, ethyl lactate, maltodextrin, saccharin, xanthan gum, gluten, sucrose, sorbitol, ethel acetate, high fructose corn syrup, citrus cloud emulsion, citric acid, ascorbic acid, di-glycerides, baking powder, fructose, sorbic acid, vanilla extract, starch
It's easier, and better, to just NOT BUY any processed foods. Don't go to fast food restaurants - or most chain restaurants for that matter, and stay out of the center of grocery stores. And while you're shopping at a grocery, try avoiding anything that comes with plastic around it - including the boxes with plastic liners. Those are typically industrially-produced foods and should be avoided anyway. In doing all this, you will be choosing nourishment and not suicide.
