If someone in your family was employed at Kaiser Gypsum Company, you might have also been exposed to asbestos
Secondary asbestos exposure, also known as domestic exposure, takes place when one breathes in or swallows asbestos fibers without being nearby the source of pollution. Unfortunately, it was a very common occurrence among the families of Kaiser Gypsum Company workers during the second half of the last century, as executives were not very preoccupied with the safety of workers, to say the least. Thus, the small asbestos fibers employees were surrounded by in the facilities they worked would linger on their clothes, which they were not required to change before returning home. While women would usually come in contact with asbestos when laundering their husbands’ work clothes, children would inhale toxic fibers upon greeting their fathers. Since handling asbestos was a regular task at Kaiser Gypsum Company, it would not take long before carcinogenic fibers accumulated in the bodies of family members.
Today, 10% of asbestos victims have never touched the mineral themselves.
