My family and I took a trip this summer up to Boston, NYC and Chicago, and on the way from city to city we seemed to always see ENDLESS CORN. Why? Well we could blame the food companies putting corn in all their products, leading to demand of more corn, but that's not right. it is government subsidies that encourage corn for ethanol that are responsible. Whole farms are dedicated to the production of ethanol corn, and so much of it is in production, it decreases the production of food corn and increases the cost of food products that were previously grown on fields not dedicated to ethanol corn. Because of this, the price of all foods have gone up, and not just corn.
