Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of United Gilsonite Laboratories workers
Carrying asbestos fibers on their clothes was very common for workers who handled or were in close proximity to this mineral during the last century. Since asbestos companies went to unbelievable lengths to cover up the dangers of asbestos exposure, employees, as well as the general population, were oblivious to the hazardous nature of the fibers they would inevitably bring home. Family members would inhale asbestos fibers in various contexts, such as when laundering the worker’s clothes or upon greeting them when they returned from the job. Nowadays, a considerable number of the individuals who were secondarily exposed to asbestos struggle with harrowing diseases like pulmonary fibrosis, asbestosis, and lung cancer. According to estimates, up to 10% of asbestos victims developed their diseases due to secondary exposure.
