Side Effects of Groundwater Contamination

Health Risks of Contamination

Another common risk of the exposure to toxic chemicals is inhalation of asbestos. Asbestos exposure can cause a chronic medical condition that can affect the tissue of the lungs. It is caused by the inhalation and retention of asbestos fibers. Those who are highly at risk include workers who face exposure by mining, manufacturing, or handling asbestos. Mesothelioma is the rare cancer that can be developed by working around asbestos fibers. Even those who come into contact with the clothing of an individual who worked around asbestos can develop and fall victim to mesothelioma.

Asbestos can be found in some public and private groundwater supplies. The wastewaters of mining and other related industries may also be a source of asbestos exposure. Other diseases that can result from groundwater contamination include:

  • Berylliosis
  • Bryssinosis
  • Hodgkin’s disease
  • Leukemia
  • Lung disease
  • Lymphoma
  • Manganism
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Pneumoconiosis
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Silicosis
