September 10, 2010, Newsletter Issue #235: Avoid the rash

Tip of the Week

Latex “rubber” gloves have been a mainstay for doctors, dentists and lab workers for generations. They are lightweight, flexible, durable and easy to use. Unfortunately, they also cause skin problems for many. So manufacturers developed an alternative made from a substance called nitrile, which is a derivative of (gulp!) cyanide. Not to worry, however. Scientists assure us that nitrile is much less toxic than those chemical bad boys sodium and potassium cyanide. But seriously, nitrile gloves are less likely to cause you to break out in a rash, and are just as safe, strong, stretchable, and sensitive as latex.
