Did you know that the asbestos in old buildings, factories, and schools can flake off, become airborne and cause a fatal type of cancer called Mesothelioma?!!
That's why I'm taking a Moment for Mesothelioma. Please read this information.....
Every year close to 3,000 people are diagnosed with Mesothelioma.
You can still find Asbestos in SCHOOLS, old buildings, and factories!!
No amount of exposure to Asbestos is safe!
Symptoms of Mesothelioma may not appear until 30 to 60 years after exposure and those symptoms are hard to diagnose, as they mimic other respiratory illnesses.
You can have contact with Asbestos second-hand, through clothing or items that have the Asbestos fibers on them.
Asbestos is still NOT banned in the United States!!
For more information on MESOTHELIOMA go to:
You can also find, at the same website, information on how to be safe around asbestos and who to contact for help with removing Asbestos:
I hope this information has been helpful and I hope all of you are being safe and staying away from Asbestos!
