Proposed U.S. Senate bill would ban all asbestos use

Despite the known health risks of asbestos, the U.S. still imports a significant amount of the mineral fiber for use in some manufacturing processes. While it is not legal to mine asbestos in the U.S., its use is allowed for some specific purposes. Many countries in the world have completely banned asbestos.

Loose-filled asbestos can increase mesothelioma risk

Asbestos exposure is a known risk for those in the construction and mining industries. However, a new study out of Australia is suggesting that even just having loose-filled asbestos (vermiculite insulation) in your home can increase the risk of mesothelioma.

Where asbestos can be found in the home

On TV, remodeling a house looks fun and easy. Want an open-space living concept? First take a sledgehammer to that wall. Of course, real life is never that simple. For example, if your house was made in the 1980s or earlier, that wall may contain asbestos sheeting or insulation.

Diagnosed with mesothelioma or another type of cancer? Treat your mental health, too.

Cancer is a devastating diagnosis. We regularly work with unbelievably brave clients who have developed mesothelioma, lung cancer and other serious medical conditions after being exposed to asbestos. We have witnessed firsthand the grief, anxiety and depression that can occur to patients and family members after a diagnosis. While their determination and resiliency are inspiring, everyone has setbacks and must find ways to cope with a new normal.

Montana sued over lax asbestos enforcement

Montana has stringent laws regarding the handling and disposal of asbestos, and for good reason. Asbestos dust is highly toxic and causes several deadly diseases, including mesothelioma and lung cancer. Because of its danger, any removal of asbestos must be handled extremely carefully and disposed of properly.

Is asbestos exposure increasing in remodeling projects?

In Chattanooga, the Tennessee Occupational Safety & Health Administration (TOSHA) is investigating the remodeling of an historic downtown hotel. According to workers on the project, unsafe remodeling was leading to the release of asbestos into the air.

U.S. is importing the most asbestos in years

We tend to think of asbestos as something that we used to use. This is only partly true. Asbestos mining is against the law. All asbestos mines have been shut down because asbestos is a highly toxic mineral that causes mesothelioma and lung cancer. And asbestos can no longer be used as insulation in homes, for example, and is widely prohibited.

Mesothelioma: What are the early symptoms and signs?

Every year, thousands of individuals are diagnosed with mesothelioma, a deadly cancer typically linked to asbestos exposure. One of the most frightening aspects of mesothelioma is that victims may not show any symptoms until decades after they first inhaled the microscopic asbestos fibers.

Sep. 26th is Mesothelioma Awareness Day -- so start wearing blue

Started in 2004, Mesothelioma Awareness Day lands on September 26 this year. Not only does this very important day bring more awareness to mesothelioma -- a cancer typically linked to asbestos exposure -- but it also helps generate funding to fight this deadly disease.
