Since the 1970s, asbestos use in the United States has consistently dropped. Unfortunately, however, the number of mesothelioma deaths has not experienced a similar decrease. In fact, some studies show that mesothelioma deaths may even be increasing.
So, if we are using less asbestos, why are thousands still dying every year from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases?
In an effort to help answer this question, we recently published a white paper titled, Asbestos: The Relentless Killer.
Some of the important issues we address in this paper include:
- The possible reasons why mesothelioma deaths remain high, and why they show no signs of slowing down
- The age groups hit hardest by mesothelioma
- The occupations most at risk of asbestos exposure
- The possible reasons why women make up a large proportion of mesothelioma victims
If you would like to learn more about these and other asbestos-related topics, we encourage you to read our white paper. After all, if you believe you may be the victim of asbestos exposure, you need to know all the facts available so you can make informed decisions about a possible legal claim.
