Visit our asbestos and mesothelioma resource websites for more information regarding asbestos exposure, mesothelioma, lung cancer and other asbestos-related diseases:
- www.secondhandmesothelioma.com - This website is dedicated to individuals who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer as a result of secondhand asbestos exposure. Secondhand asbestos exposure occurs when family members inhaled asbestos fibers brought home on the clothing of a worker who had direct daily contact with asbestos-containing materials.
- www.mesotheliomabrakes.com - Significant exposure to asbestos occurred during the repair and maintenance of asbestos-containing brake pads and linings, clutch facings and gaskets. This website applies to individuals who worked as brake mechanics or in an auto shop where brake work was conducted. Mesothelioma and lung cancer rates are rising among brake mechanics and auto shop workers.
- www.mesotheliomajointcompound.com - Prior to the late 1970s, asbestos was used as a filler material in joint compound, also known as drywall cement or mud. Contractors and laborers were exposed to asbestos, through the application and clean-up processes of joint compound. Even those who worked in an area where asbestos-containing joint compound was mixed, sanded or swept-up are at risk for developing mesothelioma or lung cancer.
- www.asbestosplastic.com - As late as the mid-1980s, asbestos was incorporated into plastic molding compounds in order to provide desired properties, such as durability and heat resistance.
