Victims of "the hidden killer" still fighting for help

Despite the fact that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has labeled asbestos a hazardous material, the United States hasn't banned its use. Perhaps you haven't worked around the deadly substance for decades, and your recent diagnosis came as a shock to you and your family.

Could asbestos finally be banned in the U.S.?

Asbestos is an extremely dangerous chemical, responsible for over 107,000 deaths and over 1,523,000 disabilities every year. The U.S. made a big step in the right direction in 2016 to regulate this dangerous chemical. Congress passed the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act into law earlier this year. The act empowers the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban the use of asbestos in the U.S.

Asbestos: a deadly and silent killer

Known for its durable properties, Asbestos was and is still used in many building and manufacturing products including siding, shingles, ceiling tiles, vinyl flooring, brake pads and fireproofing. When these products are handled or buildings containing them are renovated or demolished, individuals who are exposed may breathe in or have tiny asbestos fibers cling to their clothing.
