Did you breathe asbestos fibers from your father's dusty work clothes?

A man's terminal disease was ultimately caused by breathing in asbestos from his father's dusty work clothes, according to the Portsmouth Reader on August 16, 2008.

The man, just 62, died last August from a lung tumor related to asbestos exposure.

The newspaper reported that his father spent his life working on ships.

It is likely he experienced second-hand asbestos exposure from his father's clothing while living with his parents.

In the 1930s and continuing through the mid-1970s, the U.S. Navy used asbestos-containing products in its naval ships and shipyards.

Naval employees were exposed to asbestos in insulation and in the materials located in engine and boiler rooms, where heat resistance is essential.

Those who worked below deck--including boilermakers--were heavily exposed to asbestos fibers.

Boilermakers had to maintain, install, and repair the asbestos-insulated boilers in naval vessels, which easily release asbestos fibers through normal operations.

The article reported that a lot of the father's work was also in hot, sweaty, dusty boiler rooms. Workers were given no protection from asbestos apart from orange boiler suits.

His father would come home from work and shake off his overalls on the patio where his son was working on motorbikes.

Many people have come forward to say their home or work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
