Asbestosis: Not usually. Asbestos has been banned in commercial and residential building products however; there are some manufactured products that contain asbestos, or components, and those products must be labelled. In addition, some old buildings may still have asbestos insulation, etc. If you do not work directly with asbestos, such as in reclamation or manufacturing, your chances are quite low.

Hand washing: Are you a food services worker? If so, then washing your hands before and after serving food to other individuals is a wise program and typically required. In addition, food service workers are usually required to wear some type of gloving while working with and serving food. Dove hand soap is fine, plus it has moisturizer so that it won't dry your skin with frequent washing.

Foot discomfort: They won't "mess up your life" but they can cause foot discomfort depending on their size and position. They can certainly make wearing certain types of shoes uncomfortable. Diabetics, however, should have corns and callouses removed or trimmed to prevent further problems.
