The Case Against

Makes Us Less Healthy

  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
    The Corn Refiners of America believe High Fructose Corn Syrup is fine in moderation,  and it very well may be.  However, when High Fructose Corn Syrup is found in many breads, yogurts, pickles, breakfast cereals, condiments, salad dressings, pasta sauce, jellies and jams, and many products aimed at children like juices and cookies, it becomes far far from moderation. Don’t ban High Fructose Corn Syrup, just stop making it so cheap!
  • Farmland for Corn and not for fruits and vegatables
    The corn subsidy forces many of our farmers to grow only corn, which results in higher prices for other fruits and vegetables.
  • Corn Feed for Cattle who need antibiotics to help them digest it
    Antibiotics become less effective with time, and are being used over and over again on cattle in order for them to be able to eat corn.  This shortcut to cheap beef and dairy may cost an epidemic in the long-term.  It already may be showing signs of breeding “super-bugs”, resistant to our most common antibiotics.

Hurts us economically

  • We end up investing in using corn in our fuel instead of more efficient sugarcane
    Brazil uses many sugar-cane by-products for an efficient biofuel.  Corn is much less efficient.  However, because the US government makes it cheaper than sugar, our cars end up running on it.  We will never give biofuels a fair try in this country if they are based around corn.  So make corn less of a forced option, by eliminating the corn subsidy
  • Has foreign countries level tariffs against us to protect their farms
