"Thermo Scientific," Published Corn Allergy Study

This is one of the most comprehensive scientific papers I have read concerning corn allergies, presented in "Thermo Scientific."   Please present this article to physicians who falsely claim that corn is hypoallergenic.

Important Excerpts:
"Zea m 14, a lipid transfer protein, has also been isolated from Maize flour. Skin reactivity and IgE antibodies to this allergen were detected in 19 of 22 patients (86%) with systemic symptoms following the ingestion of Maiz...e, confirming this as the Maize major allergen . . ."

"IgE-mediated reactions
Maize may moderately often sensitise or induce symptoms of food allergy in sensitised individuals (7,15,31,34-37). Allergic symptoms reported have included abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, rhinitis, asthma, angioedema, atopic dermatitis, and anaphylaxis."

"Maize has been implicated as one of the causative foods of eosinophilic esophagitis, a disorder with symptoms suggestive of gastroesophageal reflux disease but unresponsive to conventional reflux therapies (58)."
