More information about asbestos exposure from the American Lung Association
Asbestos has been classified as a known human carcinogen (a substance that causes cancer) by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the EPA, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Studies have shown that exposure to asbestos may increase the risk of lung cancer and mesothelioma (a relatively rare cancer of the thin membranes that line the chest and abdomen). Although rare, mesothelioma is the most common form of cancer associated with asbestos exposure.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control the states with the highest incidence of lung cancer include: Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, and West Virginia. The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maine, Washington, and Wyoming. Because of their size California, New York, Texas, and Florida are the states with the most diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, or lung cancer. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "According to the CDC, high risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include: US Navy, shipyards, power plants, manufacturing factories, chemical plants, oil refineries, mines, smelters, aerospace manufacturing facilities, demolition construction work sites, railroads, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops. With mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, the cancer may not show up for decades after exposure. As long as the victim or their family members can supply us with possible proof of exposure to asbestos, the center will do everything possible to help get what might be substantial financial compensation."
