The spouses and children of Skinner Engine Company workers might have also been exposed to asbestos
A quite widespread misconception when it comes to asbestos exposure is that only people who worked with the carcinogenic mineral are susceptible to developing serious diseases. Unfortunately, there is no safe exposure to asbestos and anyone who breathed in or swallowed toxic fibers is at risk, to a greater or lesser extent. While occupational settings imply the heaviest exposure, asbestos workers are not the only demographic who come to suffer from asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. In fact, 10% of asbestos victims have never touched asbestos themselves. These are the victims of secondary exposure, which would most often take place at home before 1980. Secondary exposure refers to inhaling or ingesting asbestos fibers outside of industrial facilities.
