Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of John Deere workers
As early as 1920, studies have linked asbestos exposure to a variety of respiratory diseases and cancers. Although manufacturers had a responsibility to warn their workers and customers about the risks of working with asbestos products, they have failed in doing it. More so, they continued using it up until it was regulated in 1980. Apart from workers who have directly used asbestos in the process of manufacturing components for John Deere equipment, their family members might also be at high risk for developing serious diseases. It often happened that workers would carry asbestos fibers on their clothes, as well as on their skin and in their hair, which would later wind up in their home. Usually, women would inhale toxic dust while shaking out the clothes before washing them, whereas children would breathe in asbestos fibers upon greeting their father. Today, up to 10% of the deaths asbestos causes are the result of secondary exposure.
