Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Yarway Corporation workers
Also known as domestic asbestos exposure, secondary asbestos exposure refers to instances in which people inhale or ingest carcinogenic fibers without being in direct contact with the source of contamination. During the last century, when the employment of asbestos was so common in U.S. industrial workplaces, the family members of those who were directly handling it on the job would inevitably be exposed via this route, which is just as dangerous as direct contact with the hazardous mineral. The spouses and children of Yarway Corporation workers are unfortunately no exception. Several decades after their first encounter with asbestos fibers, a significant number of secondarily exposed individuals came to suffer from harrowing diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
