Have you lived in the same house as a C.E. Thurston and Sons worker? If so, your health might also be at risk
Secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when one breathes in or swallows toxic fibers, was extremely widespread for the better part of the last century. The primary culprit behind it was the lack of industrial hygiene within asbestos companies. Despite having knowledge of the dangers of asbestos exposure, executives decided to keep people in the dark for their own financial gain, as asbestos was quite a low-cost material. Thus, individuals who handled asbestos on the job – including C.E. Thurston and Sons employees – were not given appropriate protective equipment to wear during their shift and they were not required to change their clothes at the end of the day either. When they returned home, large amounts of asbestos fibers would be present on their clothes, which family members inevitably came in contact with.
While occupational exposure is far more harmful than secondary exposure, 10% of asbestos victims got their diagnoses due to the latter. Secondary asbestos exposure is capable of causing the same diseases as direct contact with toxic fibers, from pulmonary fibrosis to mesothelioma.
