Safe Art, Crafts and Hobbies

I suppose that by now we all are aware of the dangers of asbestos and the terrible, deadly effects it can have on our health, but I don't think that many of us know whether we have been exposed to the fibers of this mineral or not.

The general misconception is that asbestos was only used in building materials and although that is true for a large part and most asbestos victims can be found in this sector, it has also been applied in all kinds of products which were utilized by almost all of us on a regular basis.

Did you know that is could be found in paint, paper, tape, tiles, and even mittens, ironing board covers, and other textiles, for instance? Were you aware of the fact that just being around it could have negatively affected your health?

Some of you may already suffer the consequences and have consulted a mesothelioma lawyer to handle their case. I am still left wondering how many fibers I may have inhaled by practicing some of my hobbies, using craft materials, redecorating, or just going about my daily business.

We don't have to worry about that anymore nowadays, because the use of asbestos has been banned in the United States since July 1989, but there still are places and spaces that may contain this mineral which has to be professionally removed.

At least we can do our craft projects now without the fear of being exposed to asbestos!
