Alcohol Is As Dangerous As Asbestos

For Complete Asbestos Removal In Toronto, Consult A Certified Company

Ever since the perils of prolonged exposure to asbestos have become known, you are required to engage a professional asbestos removal service should you suspect such a problem on your property.

The World Health Organization, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Environmental Protection Agency and the International Agency for Research on Cancer all classify alcohol and asbestos as Group 1 Carcinogens along with tobacco, UV radiation and diesel exhaust, as they increase the risk of specific types of cancer.

Consumption of alcoholic beverages has been linked to cancers of the:

  • Oral cavity
  • Pharynx
  • Larynx
  • Oesophagus (primarily squamous cell carcinoma)
  • Colon and rectum
  • Female breast
  • Liver
  • Pancreas - limited evidence

Asbestos exposure has been linked to cancers such as:

  • Asbestosis - a scarring of the lungs that makes breathing difficult
  • Mesothelioma - an otherwise rare cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity
  • Lung cancer
  • Cancer of the larynx
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Cancer of the pharynx and stomach

While it is up to individuals to limit their intake of alcohol (we certainly implore you to seriously consider the cancer risks associated with over-consumption) our professional asbestos removal service can help eliminate the other carcinogen from your home.

Homes that were built more than 30 years ago (before the asbestos was known to be a carcinogen) are likely to have products containing this deadly substance. At the times those homes were built, asbestos was used in a number of things including cement and plastics, insulation, roofing, fireproofing, ceiling and floor tiles, paints, and vermiculite-containing garden items.
