Asbestos can occur naturally in talc, a soft mineral used in many baby powders and makeup.
(PRWEB) December 08, 2014
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is calling attention to recent research published in the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health. According to the Center for Effective Government the research suggests that talc powder can be traced to an actual case of mesothelioma. The center says, "While we have heard mesothelioma lawyers mention talc power in the past, this research was the first time we'd actually seen talc powder mentioned in the same sentence as mesothelioma. We were taken back by this news and have decided to share it with families and those who are going through a mesothelioma diagnosis.
"The majority of diagnosed victims of mesothelioma that we talk to know exactly when or where they were exposed to asbestos. Typically the victim had extreme exposure to asbestos in workplaces such as a shipyard, oil refinery, power plant, manufacturing plant, or while serving in the US Navy. The fact that they know exactly where and when they were exposed to asbestos makes the prospects of compensation much better because it is this type of specific information that can make a mesothelioma compensation claim grow into hundreds of thousands, sometimes over one million dollars in compensation."
According to the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health, “Asbestos can occur naturally in talc, a soft mineral used in many baby powders and makeup. This led a team of researchers to examine whether consumers using talc products were exposing themselves to asbestos and whether this exposure could cause mesothelioma."
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “Astonishingly, the researchers did in fact make that connection. According to the report, they tracked asbestos-contaminated talc from the mines to a talcum powder product, and then into the lung tissue of a woman who had died of asbestos-caused mesothelioma after years of using the product.”
