Latex, before it was synthesized, was derived from the sap of various plants and their fruits. Some of these fruits include bananas and papayas, among others.

I am also allergic and found out the hard way that many of the disposable gloves have cornstarch on them.So if you have a corn allergy please be aware of this.

I am highly allergic to Latex as well but I am not allergic to any specif foods that are related to Latex. I am howerver allergy to all Corn Products. I also have Asthema so I've already had to be careful but I never associated it with Latex and I've been allergic to Latex my whole life.

-ATTITUDE- Author Unknown

The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day, regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

We cannot change our past,
We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.

We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the one strength we have-and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you.

I am severely allergic to LATEX, which makes me very sensitive to bananas, kiwi, papaya, avocado, tomatoes, green bell pepper, pineapple, and several other things. I can tolerate tomatoes in small portions, but none of the rest. So, I have to be very careful with fruit salads, soups, etc. with any of these items. (Why couldn't it be turnips or liver?)
Most of the time I substitute or omit the items from a recipe. But it does make cooking and eating a bit more challenging!
