About Asbestos

Asbestos is a dangerous toxic substance that is known to cause cancer. Despite the known dangers, it was used abundantly for a long period of time in various industries during the 20th century. To this day, asbestos can still be imported into the U.S. and is still used in various products.

Of course when we’re talking something so dangerous, there’s no such thing as a safe “small amount of exposure.” That’s why we’re advocates for a full ban on asbestos in the U.S., something that every other industrialized, Western country has been able to do outside of Canada (a huge asbestos exporter).

In North America, asbestos exposure is the only generally accepted cause of mesothelioma, a rare cancer (stos exapproximately 3,000 people are diagnosed a year in the U.S.) that has no long-term cure. Often times, it will take patients months to determine if the trust cause of their symptoms because of how rare the cancer is and how difficult it can be to be diagnosed — to say nothing of how unfamiliar your everyday oncologist may be at dealing with mesothelioma treatment. By the time many patients are finally diagnosed with mesothelioma, they may find that they only have a few years of life expectancy.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has a great report on asbestos today.

There’s no such thing as a safe amount of exposure to asbestos.
