What can be done to stop the dangers of asbestos and mesothelioma?
Once the dangers of asbestos became more understood, many responsible government agencies sought to limit or ban the use of asbestos and regulate asbestos exposure. The United States Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for monitoring asbestos levels in workplaces and communities, and has banned the use of asbestos in new products since 1989. Unfortunately, growing industrial nations such as China and India have no regulations regarding this dangerous substance, and continue to use it extensively in products and construction. If you have been exposed to these dangerous minerals in the past, it is important to contact your doctor immediately, for early diagnosis of asbestos-related conditions increases the chances of survival.
