@sydneyfalk by that standard, just about nothing we eat is "natural". :)
corn gets a bum rap because modern industrial ag & food systems have been optimized to produce a staggering quantity of it and it's become one of a handful of universal feedstocks for lots of food processes, so (like soy) it's in practically everything you can buy at a grocery store that isn't, like, just a plain vegetable.
(and also because people are freaked out by genetic engineering, but that's another question.)
