Cooking with cornstarch is not, in my opinion, a good idea.
Cornstarch is very highly processed carbohydrate with no protein, vitamins or minerals. It is made from the tiny white endosperm at the center of a corn kernel. The corn kernels are processed so all of the outside shells removed. This endosperm is ground up into a fine white powder, now it is what we call cornstarch. Think about the other white foods out there like white rice, white flour, and white sugar, all highly processed too with no health benefits and fattening!
