Please present this article to physicians who falsely claim that corn is hypoallergenic.

Result of Maize food allergy: a double-blind placebo-controlled study, published in Journal of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology, 38:12 2008 Dec pg 1943-9:
Maize is a cause of IgE-mediated allergic reactions to foods in adults and children. Nearly half of the subjects recruited were confirmed by challenge to be allergic to maize. Twenty-three percent of the positive challenge patients manifested symptoms that involved two organ systems, thus fulfilling the criteria for maize induced anaphylaxis. Maize is allergenic and can pose a risk for symptomatic food allergy at a dose of 100 mg."
