Corn has been an important crop in our country since its first cultivation by Native Americans, and today’s family farmers grow a bountiful crop that helps feed the world while revitalizing the economy of rural America. Sadly, farm families are also being asked to combat alarmist claims based in flawed or false science at the same time. Farm families across America share values and concerns similar to those we work so hard to provide food for in urban and suburban communities. We understand why people have valid questions about how to best care for their families, and all of us deserve credible, unbiased answers. We suggest looking toward local professionals, such as physicians, nurses and dieticians you trust to find out more about specific health concerns. For questions about how your food is grown, America’s farmers are happy to share our experiences and knowledge of the work we so love.
