Mary88, how do you do with those clear plastic bottles that individual servings of water comes in? I ask because one night I was going to a restaurant for music and I was afraid to even get a beverage. Of course soda is sweetened with corn syrup, and even the iced tea was off limits due to the corn starch they use in tea bags. So I bought myself a bottle of water at the convenience store on the way. I got hit and hit HARD. The next day I looked up the water brand to see if it had something in it and sure enough, the BOTTLE is made from corn! You'd think by the time they got done turning the corn to plastic it wouldn't be a problem, but I KNOW that was the only thing I had eaten or drank that was different from my usual fare. And then I read on some of the corn forums that others have had reactions to this corn plastic too. I have often said that if it were only gluten, life would be easy, but between the gluten, the corn and the soy (not to mention nightshades and salicylates), there is hardly anything safe to eat!
Oddly enough I haven't noticed a reaction to water bottles? I don't do soda or most tea either. I can handle trace amounts but not quite THAT sensitive. What about the wax on fruit? I find I do ok with whole foods fruit. How about you? Weird things they add it to right!? Do you do medication? I have a few I take that I know have corn as a binding agent and I seem to do ok. Can't really afford to compound. I'm with you though, I react more violently to corn than to gluten. Stupid intestines
