Is there latex in newspaper ink? I become symptomatic when I read the newspaper.

No, newspaper ink does not contain natural rubber latex. Sometimes papers are coated with latex, particularly shiny paper for colored ads; but this is a synthetic, rather than natural rubber latex and is not a source of latex allergens.
