DIY Asbestos Exposure Rising

Currently, the highest amount of mesothelioma diagnoses affect those exposed in the 1907s and 1908s. At that time, educations about the risks was minimal.  The majority of people with cancer worked in trade and manufacturing, however asbestos exposure outside of the workplace is on the rise.

Dangerous Asbestos

Asbestos is safe when undisturbed. When renovation begins, it kicks up the deadly substance. The project releases the dangerous material into the air and becomes a health hazard. When someone inhales or ingests airborne asbestos fibers, they become lodged in the lining of the lungs. This leads to mesothelioma, deadly cancer.

In rare cases, the fibers may travel to other parts of the body. Then, they can lodge themselves into the linings of the abdomen or heart. Irritation eventually leads to tumor development.

Deadly DIY Asbestos

Experts are worried that the rising popularity of home renovation television shows are inspiring DIY projects but lowering asbestos education. These DIY jobs could bring a new wave of mesothelioma cases in years to come since the programs don’t warn about asbestos possibilities. 

Most brush off the concern since mesothelioma could take 20 to 30 years to develop. However, these DIY shows along with hardware stores should be warning about asbestos exposure. There are labels for other major illnesses but not for mesothelioma.
