It's so good to see acknowledgement of this health concern on mainstream media. This Dr. Oz segment was interesting and of real benefit for those dealing with corn allergy/sensitivity. Many viewers will likely be surprised to learn of the concern with corn, so it's great to get this information out there.

Citric acid is in thousands of foods...I will have horrific skin reactions to it.

This is a great site that explains exactly what citric acid is (corn...as we all know)...and how it is made:

"Ignorance-based marketing: This chemical company uses the “fresh” image of citrus fruit to market its citric acid – with no mention that it is most likely derived from genetically modified black mold grown on GMO corn syrup."

As the Globe and Mail succinctly puts it:

Citric acid occurs naturally in such fruits as limes, pineapples and gooseberries. The dry, powdered citric acid used as an industrial food additive since the early 19th century, however has a less appetizing source; it is manufactured using a mould that feeds on corn syrup glucose.

Corn in Medical Supplies:

This is interesting...I had to chuckle when I got to the "Body Bag" entry...I guess we don't have to worry about having a reaction at that point!
