Quoted from OP Article
RR: Right at the beginning of the 20th century, around 1905 or so. They didn't know how to treat pellagra or what it was -- obviously you had to blame someone.
LRK: If only people ate the beans with the corn, everything would have been fine.


:)There may be a grain of truth to it. Corn, at its best, is hardly nutrient dense. ::)
