Study: Asbestos exposure increases risk of heart disease, stroke

It has long been known that exposure to asbestos significantly increases the risk of developing diseases such as mesothelioma and lung cancer.

Asbestos concerns prompt closure of St. Louis streets

A St. Louis intersection recently reopened after being closed for several days due to the likely risk of asbestos exposure in the area.

Asbestos risk may force hockey team to find new home

Last month, we wrote about the investigation into a potentially major risk of asbestos exposure at the historic Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York.

WTC insurer says it has exceeded limit on asbestos claims

The insurance company that covered the initial construction of the World Trade Center has filed a claim in New York County Court, stating that it has already exceeded the policy's limit of $10 million for asbestos claims and asking the court to relieve it of any future liability on such claims. The company has also asked the court to recoup previously made asbestos claim payments that exceeded that limit.

Tomorrow, the eighth annual National Asbestos Awareness Week will come to an end, marking the conclusion of a poignant and hopeful week for residents of Libby, Montana, and people who suffer from the effects of asbestos exposure throughout the country.
