3 major side effects of eating Corn regularly

Corn is a popular snack among many people because it is easy to chew on the go and also filling. Depending on your preference, it can be roasted or boiled. The majority of people grind it into flour and use it in dishes like "Banku." Corn, on the other hand, has certain harmful side effects, which are listed below:


- Deficiency in vitamins

There is a very high risk of pellagra if you consume a lot of corn. Pellagra is caused by a lack of vitamins in the body, particularly niacin. Corn is also low in amino acids (lysine and tryptophan), as well as niacin, a vitamin that helps the body fight pellagra.

If maize is a large part of your diet, make sure to supplement with vitamin-rich foods to avoid pellagra.

- Raises blood sugar levels

Corn is unhealthy for diabetics because of its high carbohydrate content, which can raise blood sugar levels. As a result, patients with diabetes should avoid eating a lot of maize.


- Increases weight

Corn has a high sugar and carbohydrate content. Corn consumption in excess can lead to weight gain. Corn should be avoided by anyone on a diet. Corn syrup is seen as a poorer alternative to sugar and has been identified as a primary cause of obesity in several countries.

It can also have a negative impact on blood sugar levels, putting you at risk for type 2 diabetes. Corn syrup is something that should be avoided at all costs.
