Asbestos Lung Cancer
Were you or a loved one exposed to Asbestos?
Medical researchers first made a probable causal relationship between exposure to Asbestos and Lung Cancer in 1935. Asbestos Lung Cancer is a rare type of Lung Cancer, which is the most common cause of cancer death in the United States. An estimated 4,800 deaths a year are linked to this illness, a number that represents about 4 percent of all U.S. fatalities connected to cancer of the lungs.
Asbestos fibers are microscopic in nature, they are extremely durable and resistant to fire and most chemical reactions and breakdowns. These properties of Asbestos were the reasons that supported its use during the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s in a number of different commercial and industrial capacities. The most common products that contained Asbestos during these years include:
• Roofing Shingles
• Floor Tiles
• Ceiling Materials
• Cement Compounds
• Textile Products
• Automotive Parts
