Most people know that asbestos can be dangerous to humans, so naturally the question of how a carcinogen could possibly be in something we use on infants is an important one.

The short answer is that the talcum powder can be the issue. Baby powder made from talc can contain asbestos, as mines that gather talc can also contain asbestos. Learn more >> https://bit.ly/3Fmxj8O

It’s important to remember that symptoms of asbestos-related disease won't develop for 10 to 40 years after you’ve been exposed.

In the Army, the use of asbestos-contaminated products increased during World War II and the beginning of the Cold War. The Army used asbestos for much of their building construction, vehicles, and mechanical parts such as gaskets, clutch plates, and brake pads for decades. It wasn't until the 1970s that they stopped using it in new construction, and the toxic minerals remained in many Army installations for decades.

Many people are most familiar with asbestos due to its widespread use as building insulation in the 1900s. However, asbestos was also an extremely popular addition to plaster walling. Asbestos was commonly added to plaster until the late 1980s, as it was seen as an inexpensive way to add to the plaster’s insulation and fire-retardant properties.
