I got this email from Brian Turner and I am the Toxic Substance Safety Advocate for the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance. I thought the information was great to know since we all want to learn how to keep our bodies and our planet healthy.
According to Brian “Many people are unaware that asbestos is classified as a known human carcinogen, yet it is still widely used in the US. It affects our water, air, and soil quality, as it does not break down or biodegrade. I work to spread awareness because mesothelioma is caused only by asbestos exposure, so knowing more about asbestos and its risk factors truly does make a difference.” More information can be found: www.mesothelioma.com
