Subject: Natural rubber latex

Natural rubber latex

From: Elisabeth Rowan <erowan>

I am trying to compile a list of materials normally used in the
library and related professions that contain natural rubber latex.
As many of you may be aware, there has been a rise in allergic
reactions to latex, particularly among people who work in medical
facilities and those with multiple surgeries.  I work in a facility
which has tried to eliminate NRL due to a large percentage of
latex-sensitive patients and am latex-sensitive myself, so any help
you could give would be most appreciated.
