The corn will inhale excess smoke and this is very unhealthy. People who eat this kind of corn are likely to die young because its almost the same as smoking 10 cigarettes. Please don't buy corn from any seller that does this.

2. Buying corn from a dirty seller.

Some people are fond of buying corn from just any one they see selling at the road side. This shouldn't be so. Before you purchase a food item as delicate as corn from a person, please take a good look around them and the environment which they use in selling their products. Some people are very dirty and may infect the corn with bacteria.

3. Eating Corn With Soft Drinks.

This is actually very deadly and could lead to dire consequences in your body system such as inflammation, bloating and others. When eating roadside corn, don't drink minerals or soft drinks along with it. Corn contains a high amount of starch and fibre and it is unhealthy to take sugary drinks along with it.

4. Drinking water immediately after eating corn.
