Here's an interesting tid bit for those of you with a corn allergy. I'll just cut and paste below what I just posted on the Allergies In The News (school in an uproar over peanut allergic child).

Wow, the chat forum has sure brought the world together. A support group with members from Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela and Spain.
I asked Paola, the head of the support group about the common top allergens in Mexico and other South American countries. Here's what she posted
Quote:
Well, we dont have at this moment mexican stadistics but I can tell you tha the most common food allergies are milk, soy, egg, wheat and corn . We also have another food allergies but I thisk this are the top 5



Here's her response to me asking about peanut allergies.

Quote:
As far as I know is uncommon, and cases with anaphylaxis are more uncommon, or nobody reports them



I find it interesting how different areas of the world have different top allergens. Just as gelatin anaphylaxis, as our son has, is apparently (from what our allergist told us) very common in Japan but very rare in North America.
