Many people are unaware that asbestos is classified as a known human carcinogen, yet it is still widely used in the US. It affects our water, air, and soil quality, as it does not break down or biodegrade. I was contacted by Brian Turner, who works to spread awareness because mesothelioma is caused only by asbestos exposure, so knowing more about asbestos and its risk factors truly does make a difference.
Here is a document outlining some important and little known facts about asbestos and mesothelioma that they use for their Mesothelioma Awareness Day campaign this year. Take a look at it and help spread the awareness momentum going! If you would like to learn more about mesothelioma and asbestos, please visit: www.mesothelioma.com.
