Asbestos Awareness Week: April 1 – 7, 2013
Asbestos Awareness Week starts today. The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) is kicking off this global campaign of education and awareness about the risks of asbestos and the need for a ban with a candlelight vigil. Throughout the week. they’ll be presenting information from doctors, activists, and victims of asbestos diseases.
Each day, ADAO is sharing a new fact about asbestos. Today’s fact: Asbestos is a known human carcinogen and there is no safe level of asbestos exposure.
It’s a fact we know all too well, having helped clients who were exposed in large quantities for years, and those for whom a few weeks work is now killing them. Learn more about asbestos, asbestos-related diseases, and the events of Asbestos Awareness Week at MesotheliomaCenter.org.
