We’re excited to share this tremendously comprehensive infographic we’ve put together detailing the dangers of asbestos. Below you’ll learn where asbestos comes from and how it now affects nearly every corner of the United States. While asbestos has been banned for use in most capacities since 1980, you’ll see below that the mineral is still found in a multitude of commercial products, buildings, naval ship components, as well as automobile brake and friction components.
We know now that asbestos is responsible for many different health risks, including lung cancer, malignant mesothelioma, and asbestosis- a chronic and debilitating respiratory condition. We at the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance are dedicated to providing not only the best and most comprehensive information for those diagnosed with mesothelioma, but also resources to prevent adverse asbestos exposure from occurring even today.
As always, we urge you to share our resources with those who may be interested. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can provide further information about a particular topic.
