Asbestos Has Risks Because..
Asbestos is toxic and carcinogenic. Medical science has not established any minimum level of exposure to asbestos fibers which is considered to be safe. Exposure to asbestos fibers can cause debilitating and deadly diseases. The most common diseases caused by asbestos exposure are mesothelioma cancers, lung cancer, and asbestosis.
Among those at greatest risk for developing asbestos-related diseases are people whose jobs caused them to come into contact with asbestos fibers on a daily
basis, including for example, men and women who worked in the construction, shipbuilding, and automobile industries. Family members of people who worked in such at-risk industries or occupations are also at risk for developing an asbestos-related disease. This is because asbestos particles can cling to one’s clothing and hair follicles and inadvertently taken into one’s home where they can be transferred to loved ones. This is called “para-occupational exposure.”
Living With Asbestos
People who live near asbestos mines, manufacturing facilities, or construction sites that use asbestos are also at risk for developing an asbestos-related disease. These types of facilities and sites can release asbestos fibers that contaminate residential neighborhoods and put entire communities at risk. This type of exposure is referred to as “environmental exposure.”
