Asbestos In Talc
by CCUK Support
Despite the fact that asbestos is banned in many countries across the world, there are still a huge number of products made containing this material. These include baby powder, makeup and other cosmetics. Even though products that feature talcum powder are still popular they contain hidden dangers to human health.
One of the largest businesses that have been experiencing recent legal issue over asbestos being found in their talc products is Johnson & Johnson. Many lawsuits were filed after asbestos traces were found in their baby powder, which was recently dropped by the company in America and Canada for what the brand said was due to product demand declining.
The primary danger of asbestos is the miniscule fibres being inhaled and getting stuck in your lungs which may well cause an incurable asbestos related disease such as lung cancer, mesothelioma or asbestosis. If you believe you have been exposed to asbestos in any way, please seek advice from a medical professional immediately.
