Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos Exposure

Being diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, or asbestosis is overwhelming news. Unfortunately, every year thousands of people suffer from diseases related to direct, household, or bystander asbestos exposure.

Companies and manufacturers dealing with asbestos have known for almost a century that the inhalation of asbestos fibers is associated with mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and several other debilitating and often fatal asbestos-related diseases. Thousands of unsuspecting workers were exposed daily to this dangerous carcinogen as they worked in factories, mills, railroads, and other industrial occupations, often bringing asbestos fibers home and unknowingly exposing their family through household asbestos exposure.

For decades, asbestos manufacturers chose profit over people’s health by continuing to manufacture, distribute, and supply asbestos-containing products. Until this harmful carcinogen is banned once and for all, asbestos exposure, asbestos-related diseases, and mesothelioma will continue to be major national and international health concerns.

You do not have to work in an industrial occupation in order to receive high levels of asbestos exposure, and the use of asbestos in building manufacturing continues to be legal in the United States.
