As far as I know, corn is one of the worst plants not to buy organic, not only because it is mainly GMO, but also full of pesticides. I prefer to be on the safe side and buy organic corn exclusively.
Non-GMO corn can be loaded with the dangerous herbicide glyphosate (Roundup) which can be harmful to your health. Corn and also canola oil and soybeans have been genetically modified to resist the herbicide are among the worst foods to buy GMO/non-organic.. There are lab tests that can quantify your exposure to glyphosate.
