Corn Allergy Statistics (Monthly)

EMERGING CORN ALLERGY CRISIS/STATISTICS:
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) confirmed to me that their in-home surveys do not address food allergies, and no allergies for anyone over the age of 18.  After conducting my own research, I discovered that physicians and hospitals are exempt from reporting allergy statistics/allergic reactions into any state and/or government database; therefore, it is dangerous and irresponsible for any person, medical professional, government agency, or professional organization to declare that an allergy to a particular food is rare; e.g., maize (corn).  As a result, my state FDA representative encouraged me to track the statistics of one of many corn allergy groups [1] representing a "sample population."  The alarming growth statistics are indicative of an emerging corn allergy crisis, and should far exceed the threshold for declaring corn an official allergen subject to FDA labeling requirements.

The results are most likely higher; e.g., one member of the group who is not allergic to corn has three physician-diagnosed corn-allergic children (counted as one member).  In addition, I acquired an allergy to corn in 2008; however, it was not confirmed until 2011 (I had no idea what was causing my daily suffering after eating most foods).  Many people have an allergy to corn, but don't understand their symptoms are related to a corn allergy (anaphylaxis, respiratory distress, migraines, acne, hives, swollen painful joints, rashes, itchy eyes, sneezing, abdominal swelling, brain fog, runny nose, cardiac arrhythmia, increased pulse rate, anger ("corn rage"), depression, vomiting, feeling of impending doom, diarrhea, mucus/blood in stools, etc.)--based on published literature and personal testimonies.

  2. Because Eosinophilic esophagitis is a fairly recent diagnosis for those who suffer from difficulties when eating, there isn’t any medicine for it at the moment. This makes research on this condition all the more important in order to find treatment options for this lifestyle-impairing condition as soon as possible.

  3. Wow! Long before I had symptoms from corn in general, I had problems with microwaved popcorn. Wonder if this product is a factor in the increase.

  4. It took me 3 1/2 years to discover my allergy to corn. In July, 2008, all of a sudden it felt like I was being poisoned by all of my food; and it got to the point that I was afraid to eat anything (corn is ubiquitous). After keeping a detailed food journal for 2 years, I finally attributed my symptoms to a corn allergy. I was diagnosed in 2011 with adult, sudden-onset allergies which also included soy, yeast, dairy, salmon, scallops, pork, mushrooms, chocolate, melons, pecans, and pistachios. Since 2008, I have also developed a severe allergy to 99% of antibiotics, petroleum/petrolatum; and cannot tolerate fragrances as well as many chemicals (had to convert my fresh-water pool to salt water since the chemicals were causing asthma attacks). I was able to take penicillin my entire life, and now it could kill me. I, too, am questioning the cause of the sudden increase in allergies among the entire world-wide population.

    I discovered from my corn allergy groups that many allergists refused to test patients for a suspected allergy to corn, falsely claiming that "no one can be allergic to corn, since corn is hypoallergenic!" In addition, corn was often excluded from the standard allergy testing panel. My own allergist didn't test me for corn in May, 2011. It wasn't until December, 2011, that I asked him to test me for corn which came back positive. I'm sorry to hear that you also suffer from this debilitating allergy.
