It's bad enough that people with a corn allergy can't find corn free medicine but there is great danger in receiving a blood transfusion or any kind of blood product.

One of the things that I am HIGHLY sensitive to is corn derived CITRIC ACID/Sodium Citrate. It is pretty much ALL made from corn these days. And then there is the DEXTROSE. I can only imagine what would happen if I was given blood with any/all of these corny additives...
