Ways to Make a Difference

If corn allergy (or intolerance) has touched your life, consider joining the write in campaign.  Nicole over at Corn Freedom is spear heading the plan to raise awareness; especially among the medical community.  Erica has more information on her blog, Corn Free Lifestyle.  While they are looking for all aspects of corn allergy, they especially want to hear from individuals who notice neurological and behavioral responses to corn exposure.  It doesn't have to be long, just a few succinct paragraphs.

Another way to make a difference is to join the Just Label It campaign.  This one isn't corn specific, but the goal is to get GMOs labeled.  Those of us with corn allergy know how vital it is to be able to control what we put in our bodies, what we feed our families.  It's an essential part of managing our health.  Many of us suspect that GMOs may be partly responsible for the rise in food allergies.  Whether that's true or not, we deserve to make a choice...which means we deserve to have our food clearly labeled.

Thanks, Mist. I really hope everyone will take the time to write something concerning corn allergy and how it affects their lives. This could be our chance, we just need to get as many people involved as possible.
