Long-term exposure to asbestos, lead or mold can cause serious health problems.
Asbestos exposure can lead to lung cancer and mesothelioma, a rare cancer of the thin membranes that line the chest and abdomen.
Lead in even small amounts can greatly affect your health. According to the Mayo Clinic: “Children under the age of 6 are especially vulnerable to lead poisoning, which can severely affect mental and physical development. At very high levels, lead poisoning can be fatal.”
And mold exposure can aggravate allergies, cause asthma attacks and lead to a higher risk of pneumonia in sensitive individuals.
