Perhaps you can help answer a question that was floated about our 
office this morning.  It is frequently noted that corn kernels seem 
to pass through the digestive system intact.  Aside from the fact 
that corn is tasty, why do we eat corn?  It would appear that my body 
does not process it very well.  Others in my office shared similar 
experiences with corn.  Did I gain any nutritional value from the 
corn?  Thanks for your help.

Curiously Corny in Tampa
