The threat of illness from asbestos is something that Americans all over the country are aware of, and take measures to guard against. Despite the fact that it is illegal to use asbestos in manufacturing in many countries, asbestos is still used in the U.S. for roofing and fireproofing materials. It causes slow growing diseases that may ultimately prove fatal, and exposure to asbestos may result from the negligence of a home manufacturer. In such a situation, it may be wise to call an expert asbestos attorney at 617-787-3700.
Although we all know the dangers of asbestos, a new study suggests that exposure to carbon nanotubes (CNTs), which are used in making TVs, sports cars, computers, and tennis rackets, may have the same fatal consequences. Research in England has shown that exposure to these carbon nanotubes aid the development of mesothelioma in mice in much the same way asbestos does. Researchers noted the similar shape, size, and structure of carbon nanotubes to asbestos. What’s more, CNTs are far more widespread in their use than asbestos at this point, and industry trends suggest that CNT use will be even more widespread in coming years.
