Government indicates asbestos in schools is going unchecked

The internal watchdog responsible for overseeing the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) actions has issued a report indicating that the agency isn't doing what it should do to protect students and staff in the nation's educational institutions from exposure to asbestos. This lapse affects approximately 50 million children and about 7 million adults every year.

Have your children been affected by asbestos?

As a parent, you probably go out of your way to protect your children from toxins. You might opt for organic produce to minimize exposure to pesticides. Perhaps you purchase dye-free, preservative-free food to stay on the safe side. Despite your best efforts, however, toxins such as asbestos could still be lurking where you least expect them.

Providing emotional support to someone with mesothelioma

Do you have a loved one who was diagnosed with a terminal illness? Mesothelioma – a fatal disease caused by exposure to asbestos – is often caused by inhaling asbestos fibers at the workplace, a situation that could have been prevented. This can cause a lot of anger toward those who are responsible.

Will there be new approved uses for asbestos?

Recently the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) changed its policy on the regulation of asbestos. It now includes it as a substance that is subject to the “significant new use rule” (SNUR). Used in only a few circumstances, the rule creates added oversight for chemicals that might be hazardous.

What's the tie between the World Trade Center and mesothelioma?

It's been 17 years since the collapse of the Twin Towers on Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately, that's still not long enough for many of the people who were near the World Trade Center that day or in Manhattan during the cleanup period to know if they will eventually develop an asbestos-related illness.

Three little-known dangers of asbestos exposure

These days, comprehensive advertising campaigns have helped spread the word about mesothelioma and asbestos. However, there are several other diseases that are also associated with asbestos -- and many people don't realize it.
