According to a Healthline article, this article talks about the health problems that maize may help with if you eat it often.
What medical problems can be helped by eating corn often?
1. Corn has two important compounds that help keep your eyes healthy: lutein and zeaxanthin. This shows that eating corn often may help treat or prevent some eye problems, such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Since maize is good for your eyes, there's no reason to limit yourself if you have the chance to eat it often.
2. Corn also helps treat or prevent diverticular diseases and digestive problems because it has a lot of fiber.
