Asbestos Awareness in America

Asbestos is not banned in the US,

yet it’s the only known cause of mesothelioma.

This is a subject I have known about for many years, but like many Americans I’m sure, is a subject I’ve never dedicated much thought nor time. After “meeting” Heather Von St. James in early April when she contacted me about Asbestos Awareness week and sharing this valuable information with my readers, I was shocked at what I had learned!

 

  • Every year around 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma, a deadly cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.
  • On average, they are given 10 months to live.
  • That’s 300 days.
  • 7,200 hours.

And Asbestos is still not banned in the United States. WOW. I cannot believe that. I know that many manufacturing companies have chosen on their own to remove asbestos from their plants and locations, but if they choose not to, there is nothing a person can do about it. Why is this even a question? Because of a lack in legislation banning asbestos, our fellow Americans are suffering and some dying.

Please visit Heather and read her story and share it everywhere.

Asbestos and Mesothelioma are real and nothing has been done about them.

Also visit the Mesothelioma website and find out what you can do to help with the cause.
