How do I know if I have mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that occurs in the mesothelium, which is the tissue that covers most internal organs. This cancer usually develops because someone inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers, which end up irritating some of their body tissues.

What is the connection between talc and asbestos?

When you were younger, you probably didn’t worry that baby powder could give you cancer. Likewise, it’s doubtful that you were too worried about the chance your makeup or your child’s crayons contained cancer-causing substances. But in recent years, we’ve learned that all these talc-based products have been tainted with asbestos, the carcinogenic mineral known to cause mesothelioma.

Custodians may be the first line of asbestos defense in schools

When parents and community members think about school safety, they often think about principals, counselors, mental health professionals, police officers or even teachers. Custodians and maintenance workers rarely come to mind. Yet, these often-overlooked workers may be the first line of defense against hazardous materials like asbestos, which could be present in schools.

What is an asbestos watch area?

The residents of Davidson, North Carolina, are all too familiar with asbestos and its health risks. The community was home to the former Carolina Asbestos Corporation factory, which used asbestos to make fabric, tiles and shingles between the 1930s and the 1960s.

Parents need to protect their children from asbestos

All parents understand the joys of watching their children play. The wonderment you feel as you see their imaginations in full bloom. The pride you feel when they emulate your mannerisms and behavior. Your relief when you can stop chasing them for a bit and enjoy their youthful innocence and exuberance. But how would all this change if they were secretly harming themselves? What if you were partly responsible for the damage?
