Answer:

The viscous sap tapped from rubber trees is called LATEX. It is a sap-like extract but it is not sap which can be collected and is the primary source of natural rubber. Latex, as found in nature, is the milky sap of many plants that coagulates on exposure to air. It is a complex emulsion in which proteins, alkaloids, starches, sugars, oils, tannins, resins and gums are found. In most plants latex is white, but some have yellow, orange, or scarlet latex. The yellow or white latex from which rubber is made occurs in numerous specialized latex vessels in the bark, especially outside the phloem. The tree is tapped by making careful incisions, as deep as possible without injuring the tree's growth, in a herringbone pattern or often in a lefthand spiral of 30° around the trunk, for the latex vessels spiral to the right at an angle of about 30° from the horizontal. The latex is collected in small cups and then treated—usually by coagulating it with acid, pressing it free of water, and drying the resultant sheets in a smokehouse to ready them for shipment. Latex is believed to function in plants as a form of stored food, while others consider it an excretory product in which waste products of the plant are deposited. Others believe it protects the plant in case of injuries and it may provide some protection against browsing animals, since in some plants latex is very bitter or even poisonous. Latex is used in to make rubber, clothing, paint, base for chewing gum (Chicle). Poppy latex is a source of opium and its many derivatives. (Such tapped and treated latex from a rubber tree smells so offensive as far as I can remember.)
Let me see if I have this correct. Corporate receives an email claiming some type of wrong doing on your part and based on that, someone executes a command to have you fired. The manager did not investigate to determine if you were at work or even to ask you if you were involved but somehow he decides to go along blindly with the termination. If that is correct, then be glad you are free to go find another job where they will be a little more sensitive to their employees. Or, perhaps there is more to the story
