Mesothelioma And Asbestos

Most of those diagnosed with Mesothelioma worked at jobs where they were exposed to asbestos fibers or asbestos dust.  Asbestos used to be a component of home insulation, brake shoes and some cement compounds.  Workers installing, or renovating homes containing asbestos insulation or asbestos cement and people coming in contact with clothing or equipment covered in asbestos dust were at risk of contracting Mesothelioma.

Today, asbestos has been banned in products that might lend themselves to asbestos fiber or dust exposure.
