Chemical Exposure In The Home
Dangerous, hazardous and toxic chemicals are all around our home whether we know it or not. If you have houseplants, or are a gardener, you may be exposed to a carcinogen named glyphosate which is found in the weedkiller Roundup. It is a very strong carcinogen linked to different cancers and birth defects.
Also, the common herbicide paraquat is used in homes and home gardens everyday in this country. Paraquat exposure is a cause of early onset Parkinson’s Disease, a commonly misdiagnosed neurological disorder effecting the ability to control ones movements, speech and other motor skills.
Workplace Chemical Exposure
The 2 chemicals already mentioned, paraquat and Roundup, can also be found in the workplace especially on farms, golf courses, university campuses, hospital campuses and other settings needing landscapers, gardeners, farmers and groundskeepers.
Other common chemicals that can result in illness, injury or death are asbestos, benzene, bleach, caustic agents, carcinogens, fire/smoke, firefighting foam, lead, mercury and other metals, NDMA, diesel fuel, other gasolines, radiation & teratogens. No matter what type of chemical you were exposed to you have rights and they need to be protected. Our Washington DC chemical exposure injury attorneys will do just that.
