Asbestos Exposure:
Are You At Risk?


Home : Green Tea Cancer Research : Asbestos Exposure


Have you unknowingly inhaled asbestos?

Exposure to asbestos can happen at work, at home, in school, in the military, and outdoors.

Because it is a naturally occurring mineral that resists heat, it was used massively for insulation in buildings and machinery until people learned it was associated with lung diseases and fatal cancers like mesothelioma.

After several decades of controversy and litigation, it is now regulated in many developed countries.

You can still find it in up to 5000 common products

Asbestos exposure can occur with products including:

    building insulation in older homes, schools, and offices

    machinery insulation

    auto and truck brake pads

    contaminated vermiculite for gardening

    domestic and military shipbuilding and maintenance

    construction materials including

      drywall sheet rock,

      floor tile,

      ceiling tile,

      roofing felt and shingles,

      caulking,

      adhesives, and more

    art supplies

    home equipment and supplies including

      older hair dryers,

      electric blankets,

      kitchen appliances,

      fireproof safes,

      barbecue gloves,

      pipe insulation,

      wallboard, and more

    packing materials

    decorative fireplace logs

    talc and talc-containing cosmetics

    dust-contaminated work clothing

among others.

How does asbestos harm your lungs?

This mineral is very light weight and easily breaks into microscopic particles.

It creates a dust that floats in the air for long periods of time.

When inhaled, the dust particles travel to the lungs and in some cases to the mesothelial lining around the lungs.

The asbestos dust particles are too small and too many to be removed. Acting like microscopic shrapnel, they damage cells, creating a time bomb of biochemical events that can eventually lead to scarring, mesothelioma cancer, metastasis, and death.

Medical research not only seeks new treatments, but also studies how to slow down the progression of asbestos cancers (such as green tea asbestos health research).

Domestic or imported products?

While U.S. laws may regulate the manufacture of these products using asbestos, many products may be imported with fewer regulations or with lower standards.
