Former Uniroyal Holding, Inc. Workers Should Keep a Close Eye on Their Health
Without a doubt, the most popular product of Uniroyal Holding, Inc. was Asbeston, a lightweight lagging cloth which was sold in large amounts to shipyards. It would often be used to repair or cover insulation. Consequently, shipyard workers and people who were serving in the U.S. Navy between 1941 and 1976 were at highest risk of asbestos exposure, in addition to the individuals who participated in the manufacturing process. The most widespread health problem asbestos exposure is notorious for is lung disease, which ranges in severity from non-malignant, such as pulmonary fibrosis, to malignant, such as lung cancer. Workplace asbestos exposure is also responsible for a very aggressive form of pulmonary cancer – mesothelioma – which develops on the outer lining of the lungs. Since it may take up to 50 years for a disease to set in, we advise everyone who was employed at Uniroyal Holding, Inc. before 1980 to constantly pay attention to their health.
