Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Youngstown Sheet and Tube workers
During the last century, the endeavors of asbestos companies to keep the dangers of asbestos exposure hidden were appalling, as they went as far as bribing medical researchers to convince them to change the results of their studies, which found that asbestos was indeed carcinogenic. One consequence of this conspiracy was secondary asbestos exposure, as people who handled asbestos on the job were not required to change their clothes at the end of their shift. Therefore, they would bring asbestos dust on their clothes in their houses on a regular basis. Their wives would often be exposed to asbestos when washing their garments, while their children would inhale and ingest toxic fibers when greeting their fathers.
