Is Blue Corn Healthy or Harmful?
Blue corn is one of the oldest varieties of corn.

The Pueblo Indian tribe in the Southwestern United States was using it at least as far back as 1540 when Spanish explorers discovered the region.

The bluish hue comes from anthocyanins – the plant-based antioxidants also found in berries and cherries.

The problem however, could be the corn itself.

Dr. Mike will discuss the pros and cons of blue corn.
