I think there has been hidden corn in my diet from something I new nothing about: Plastic made from corn!
I’ve been sensitive to corn for decades, I’ve avoided it entirely since my gluten problems started. For the last week or two I’ve been itchy from a newly developed fragrance intolerance. I’ve been getting all new fragrance free products, but not feeling better really. I kept thinking that I still almost felt like I was feeling itchy from the inside out. Even my eyes were burning off and on.
Then I just learned on this site (thanks Bartfull ) about corn being used to make plastic to avoid the harmful BPA problem, including in the lining inside canned food!!! I didn’t even know cans were lined with plastic!
I usually eat non-processed whole foods and I was starting to feel a lot better lately. Until the last couple weeks when I added something new to my diet: Wild Planet canned tuna, the healthiest, lowest mercury tuna in a can. I think it corned me!!! I was eating some canned fruit too.
I’ve been having trouble sleeping, which usually doesn’t happen. I feel terrible. I’m really overwhelmed from a lack of sleep and I’m starting to lose it. No more canned anything. I need to research my bottled water now, especially since most of my drinking water comes in liter-sized clear plastic from Trader Joe's. The cloudy water containers are supposed to be better (thanks again to Bartfull for the info ).
This gluten thing along with all the other food reactions has turned out to be a very complicated, ongoing, twisty-turvy bugger! I don’t know what I would do without this site. I hope this info helps others too.
