Former meth labs turned-homes leak toxic chemicals into the air for YEARS, study shows
Researchers in Australia are sounding the alarm after they made disturbing discoveries in homes that were once used as meth labs, finding that trace amounts of the drug persist in the property for years after it has been sold.
The potentially toxic chemicals cling to surfaces on furniture, clothes, and carpets, as well as items brought into the home like rugs, toys, beds, and leach back into the air for more than five years after the former drug operations ceased.
The study, published in the Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology, was conducted by researchers at Flinders University in Australia focused on two different former meth lab homes in Australia.
A family with young children lived in one of the homes for nine years, and reported feeling ill throughout the entire time they lived there, with the kids bearing the brunt and developing asthma-like symptoms, difficulty sleeping, and behavioral changes.
