Did you know?

Some band-aids have the following Caution on their packaging:

Caution: The Packaging of This Product Contains Natural Rubber Latex Which May Cause Allergic Reactions.

So how does that natural rubber latex thing work exactly? Are there like trees in Idaho somewhere that grow it? What's the harvest schedule on that? Inquiring minds want to know....

well--i think the word "natural" actually modifies the word "rubber" and not the word "latex" in this instance. so this is a synthetic latex containing "natural rubber." and yes, it grows on trees.

that pedantic enough for you? :)
