The spouses and children of former Brauer workers might have been indirectly exposed to asbestos
Although the majority of asbestos victims are people with a history of occupational exposure, 10% of those who suffer from mesothelioma – which is caused only by the inhalation of asbestos fibers – have never handled this toxic mineral themselves. Secondary asbestos exposure would often take place in the families of Brauer employees, as they were not required to change their asbestos-laden clothes before returning home. Thus, spouses and children would come in contact with asbestos on a regular basis, inevitably breathing in hazardous fibers which could later afflict them with devastating illnesses. Moreover, because asbestos fibers are extremely small and have a rough texture, they would also attach themselves to pieces of furniture covered with fabric, such as couches or armchairs, which led to further contamination.
Secondary exposure is just as dangerous as primary exposure since airborne asbestos represents a health hazard regardless of the circumstances in which one encounters it. If you lived under the same roof as a Brauer worker for an extended period of time and are now struggling with lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, or asbestosis, secondary exposure is most likely the cause of your disease.
