Humans are not insects, BT does not affect the human gut.

Just remember, unless it's labeled ORGANIC, that corn you're eating is likely GMO corn that makes its own BT toxin which punches tiny holes in your gut - it's designed to do that to insects; in those it causes their guts to break open.

Ah, grits. A bit of nostalgia from growing up in Alabama. I loved grits with butter, cheese and eggs over easy all mixed in.

Bah! Soft, velvety tortillas that soak up juices vs. grainy, oily ones that split and spill your food everywhere? That's what I call a no-brainer.

You can eat them, sure. They're not "ideologically Paleo" but I do eat a little corn from time to time, mostly in the form of masa harina and grits.

I wouldn't make it a staple, though.

Corn on the cob is more a veggie than a grain in my book. Though I live in 'corn country'??? I might be biased.

Corn versus flour tortillas? A no brainer for me! Rich, flavorful tortillas versus bland, gummy tortillas.

In choosing between the lesser of two evils, corn tortillas are better than flour tortillas.

I say yes, corn tortillas (from the health food store only! non-gmo, no more than 4 ingredients, cost about $1.25/dozen) are fine if you can tolerate them. I personally see them as a "sometimes food" maybe two times per month max, no more than 2 tortillas per meal, and always as the main starch component. I see nothing wrong with that.

I choose to eat corn... make sure it's organic.

I buy some nice, inexpensive corn tortillas. Made from water, organic corn and salt.

My mom cooks corn time to time. I love it. Butter and salt in boiling water makes very tasty corn. Never knew.
