Just one more way we can be poisoned by choices we make. Yet, it does not surprise me. It "fits" so strongly that it horrifies me!

Oh, of course, it's a problem for the manufacturers. Why don't we just chuck them altogether and then we wouldn't have to worry.....

(A brief foray into my own brand of junk science: I've always wondered if the proliferation and over-promotion of condoms is in any way connected with the large number of latex allergies. I do know people who must wear gloves in the course of their professions and have suffered terribly after developing sensitivities to latex, but here I'm thinking more about latex sensitivity in the general non-healthcare and/or scientifically employed population. I don't think this is happening because we played with balloons as children.)
