Cornmeal, hominy & polenta (dried corn) are listed as an avoid under Carbohydrates.
Corn Oil is an avoid under Oils.
Popcorn is an avoid under Live Foods - but popcorn is cooked.

What about listing raw corn in its typical Live Food state (boiled, steamed, raw, or grilled)?

The items are listed in categories based on the same placement by the USDA in their Nutrient Database. That database is where most of the macro and micronutrient data for SWAMI comes from.

As an aside, there is no perfect way to list the foods and all methods have some inherent issues. That is not to say that your suggestion is not a potential improvement.

I had taken the SWAMI entry "Corn, Popcorn"
to mean "Corn or Popcorn" perhaps because I knew for me I was not going to be able to eat corn products in any form.

However, as I scan the list I can see that is not how a comma is used in some of the other entires.

The USDA listing is clearly popcorn. There are numerous corn listings. I do not know why another corn listing was not also used.

When the GTD was first published I thought the commas may have been used differently.

The way the USDA lists foods in the latest update appears to have been changed. There is no longer a polenta entry, for example. So the entry 'cornmeal, hominy, polenta' is not part of the current database.

According to Dr. D, I believe corn is bad because it's been GMO -ized to the point of doing nothing but causing over weight in people.

I'm not so sure about that, I can easily get blue corn, organic, not GMO and it still doesn't work well for me on GTD, it wasn't too bad on BTD. My daughter has also seen great improvements from cutting out corn and all she ever ate was organic.

Corn is corn, but what about Peruvian super food purple corn?

I just wonder if I should test it.
