Dear Sir/Madam,

              I have a question here which my sister was asking me about. It is 
with regards to the topic on cells. She learnt from school that latex a natural 
material that comes from the rubber tree and it is used to make rubber tyres.So, 
the question is, does latex have cells in it as her teacher said that rubber  
tyres are considered as once alive. Since living things are made up of cells , 
does that therefore imply that latex have cells in it? Kindly enlighten me so 
that I can explain to my sister on this issue. Thanks a million. Have a nice
