    I live in Illinois and everything we do and eat around her has to do with corn. What do I do with my positive result for a corn allergy?

    Let me say that I have no clue....but man, that would suck! I can't imagine a life without corn.

    Move to FL? I think Des has offerd a room before?

    Never forget, corn is evil.

    Have you seen that commerical for high fructose corn syrup? I was so confused, I thought I was watching SNL and it was one of their fake commercials. This is the one I saw:

    I don't have sound on my youtube here, so I've never heard this one:

    Sorry, I just think the corn controversy is funny, you know, given where we live and all. :)

    Ooh, maybe this is actually a useful site for you: http://www.cornallergens.com/

    That would suck---- I have an allergy to the corn pollen from the plant itself. Pollination time is fun for my sinuses. NOT! Just one of many things that should drive me out of the midwest.
