Health concerns

I’ve been working as a lab analyst for 15 years already and everyday I’m exposed to different kinds of chemicals, some are hazardous, toxic and carcinogenic. I just use personal protective equipment to protect my self from over exposure from fumes that will cause detrimental effect on my health. Anyway their level of toxicity are not as dangerous as asbestos when over exposed.

Asbestos causes Mesothelioma and people who work around asbestos fibers are thought to have the greatest risk of having this cancer. But do you know that asbestos is a mineral that’s found naturally in the environment? It is used in a wide variety of applications, such as in insulation, cement, brakes, shingles, flooring and many other products. If you’re not aware of this, it’s time you should be careful and cautious about this cancer causing mineral.
