For decades, millions of unsuspecting Americans were exposed to toxic levels of asbestos on their jobs, in their homes, at school, and numerous other places. The following video details the dangers of asbestos and the options available to victims of asbestos poisoning.
Individuals who incur significant asbestos exposure are at risk of developing asbestosis, lung cancer, mesothelioma (a fatal cancer that attacks the lining of the chest cavity and internal organs), and other serious illnesses.
In fact, the only proven cause of mesothelioma is asbestos. Individuals who worked in shipyards, including Navy facilities, are among those who are most frequently stricken with mesothelioma. The disease begins when the tiny fibers of asbestos are let loose in the air, where they are inhaled and become lodged in the lungs. There is no cure for mesothelioma.
