Are PCBs the New Asbestos? | By: Nicolas Zepeda

Are PCBs the New “Asbestos?”  In a recent podcast, Kathy Fettke says that if you own a building that was constructed in the 1950s, 60s, or 70s, you need to be aware of potential PCB contamination because it’s becoming headline news.  What exactly are PCB’s anyway?  Polychlorinated biphenyls are man-made chemicals that were widely used in construction materials and electrical products starting in the 50’s until they were banned in 1979.  They were found in caulking, oil-based paint, floor finishes, and fluorescent light ballasts.  This podcast is worth a listen.
