Corn doesn't pass right through us, only the outer shell of the seed does. We digest the nutrients on the inside of the seed.

If you don't chew it then yes, it goes right through you just like all other seeds. However, if you chew it, then only the external husk is left undigested. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

Try eating a jumbo bag of popcorn and nothing else for a day. It's like passing 40 grit sandpaper.

A little off topic, but I used to build sewer plants in Ca. The sludge ponds would grow these huge tomato plants. there was one guy on the crew who would eat the tomatos off the plants for lunch. I don't eat plain tomatos anymore.

My wife is an Oceanographer. Part of her research involved the study of the food chain. Experiments she ran involved taking sewer effluent and using it as food of all the little fishies (one man's garbage is another man's food). In any event, she can no longer eat corn. It was often visible in the effluent. One guess where it came from.

This does not even sound like fun. I went to the movies tonight and ate a bunch of popcorn. I am not looking forward to this., [;)] medcop

Actually it was more like passing tar paper and gravel. Not that my digestive system is of Olympian caliber, but you get the idea... not all men are created equal. Next time I'm getting a double serving of melted butter.

Popcorn is worse than corn, cause the hulls are baked hard... They can mess with the lower intestines.. Over half of my 10+ diverticulitis attacks in the last 9 years were soon after eating popcorn... Haven't had any in 2 years...
