FDA, European agencies investigating makeup for asbestos

The recent revelation that some talc-based makeup sold at Claire’s contained asbestos sparked concern and outrage among consumers.

Many homeowners are unaware of whether their house contains asbestos. Used throughout the 20th century as an insulator, asbestos is not detectable by sight alone. Asbestos is a deadly carcinogen linked to mesothelioma, lung cancer and other asbestos-related illnesses.

The health implications of asbestos exposure

Exposure to asbestos can be extremely damaging to your health. Unfortunately it is difficult to know whether you have been exposed to the dangerous substance or not. However, it is more likely that you have suffered exposure to asbestos if you have been working in a building that contains asbestos while it was being renovated.

Which workers are at most risk for developing mesothelioma?

Asbestos exposure among miners, millers, factory line workers and construction workers was relatively high until the 1960s and 1970s. Little did they know at the time just how deadly exposure to the mineral would prove to be later in life. It's largely due to the fact that asbestos has a latency period of 10 to 40 years that it's only now that the true harmful effects of exposure to it are being experienced by so many.
