CEMENT AND TOXINS

Our last #health_awareness was based on cement effects to the skin, but we are treating how cement can affect you If you inhale its dust....

Inhaling high levels of #cement_dust may occur when workers empty bags of cement. In the short term, such exposure irritates the nose and throat and causes choking and difficult breathing. Sanding, grinding, or cutting concrete can also release large amounts of dust containing high levels of #crystalline_silica. Prolonged or repeated exposure can lead to a disabling and often fatal lung disease called #silicosis.

Some studies also indicate a link between crystalline silica exposure and lung cancer.

According to our research even newly installed tiles can be dusty when dry and when trampled on, the settled cement dust on the newly installed tiles can be scatter into the air and will be inhaled. It is advised to apply regular mopping to newly installed tiles after tiles work is done.



Cement dust is mostly found in renovation site, so therefore, when renovation of tiles work is going on in your home, office or public place stay away from the site and also monitor children as not to go near site of work.
