Asbestos exposure at home: Is it a possibility?

Many Minnesota readers may recall the ban the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) placed on asbestos in 1989. However, such readers may be unaware that the ban was lifted several years later. Many homes throughout the state pose asbestos exposure risks to household members and visitors, particularly homes built in the 1970s or earlier.

Asbestos exposure: Senator upset about government delay

In Minnesota and many other states, there are people being support by palliative care for terminal illnesses such as mesothelioma. It is a malignant tumor caused by asbestos exposure. Sadly, in many cases, injuries were preventable but were caused by employers' negligence in keeping their workers safe on the job.

Asbestos exposure cases require thorough investigation

If you're one of many Minnesota workers who began to experience ill-health symptoms after working in a factory, shipyard, school or other location, you are not alone. Many workers have experienced similar issues; in fact, some did not develop symptoms of illness until 10 or more years after the incident that caused their illness took place. For many workers, asbestos exposure was the causal factor regarding their injuries.

Asbestos exposure a big risk for Minnesota baby boomers

Working during any time between 1940 and the late 1970s in Minnesota or beyond posed potentially serious health hazards to many people. Those who were working during the baby boomer era may now be have ill-health if they suffered asbestos exposure on the job. The U.S. government did not always regulate the use of asbestos as stringently as it does now.

Good news for Minnesota residents with asbestos exposure injuries

Many Minnesota households include family members who have been diagnosed with malignant pleural mesothelioma. This is one of the most common and aggressive forms of cancer associated with asbestos exposure. Symptoms often lie hidden in a person's body for years until, perhaps, a lingering cough, chest pain or sudden weight loss prompts the individual to seek medical attention, thereby leading to a diagnosis. 

Financial settlement can't undo asbestos exposure

Minnesota teachers may be among other school faculty across the country who are growing increasingly concerned about possible health hazards in the workplace. Many school buildings that exist today were built decades ago, which, in some cases, places teachers, students and visitors at risk for certain health problems. A teacher in another state was devoted to her students for more than 30 years before learning she had contracted a terminal illness that was likely caused by asbestos exposure at the school where she taught.

Workers in another state worried about asbestos exposure

In Minnesota and beyond, there is a lot of misinformation regarding asbestos. Some people mistakenly believe it is no longer used in products in the United States, which is untrue. Others understand there is a risk of asbestos exposure on their jobs or at school or home, but they are at a loss as to how to protect themselves.

What Minnesota residents should know about asbestos exposure

In Minnesota and most other states throughout the country, there are hidden dangers lurking in people's homes, in schools, factories and other community locations. Asbestos exposure remains problematic in many regions. One of the biggest problems is that the fibers that are so dangerous to human health are microscopic. This is why it pays to learn as much as possible about asbestos and what to do or not do if it is discovered in a particular area.

When asbestos exposure causes loss during the holidays

Many Minnesota families will be forced to cope with the loss of a loved one before 2019 comes to an end. In some instances, a family's grief may be intensified by knowing that the illness that caused a loved one's death was preventable. For instance, when asbestos exposure is a causal factor, it is often employer negligence that was ultimately responsible for a particular worker's adverse health condition. Coping with sudden loss during the holidays is not easy, but it is often more tolerable when the family in question has a strong support network.
