I do work in television as well as radio, and I remember one of the stories I covered years ago. What I was stunned by, was a whole issue of allergy to latex. I hadn’t thought about it. Latex would not be something you would think people are allergic to, but what has happened is, because of HIV, and because of blood precautions for hepatitis and other things, more and more people are using latex gloves. The gloves often have a powder lining, and what happens is that powder has become aerosolized. More people have been exposed to latex, and yes, they are having reactions.
