CNN reports that the CDC is struggling to understand why younger segments of the population are continuing to be affected by asbestos exposure. Based on efforts to reduce asbestos usage and educate people of the dangers of asbestos exposure, deaths from the deadly mineral were expected to decline. However, in a report released by the CDC the number of mesothelioma related deaths rose from 2,479 in 1999 to 2,579 in 2015.
In those sixteen years 682 people between the age of 25 and 44 died. Researchers are still looking for the way in which younger people could have been exposed without much luck. We think that these researchers are overlooking some of the more obvious exposures such as schools which contained asbestos. Click here to read on of our recent articles on the topic. Exposure could have even come from their own homes where asbestos was used in piping, flooring, roofing, as well as other areas.
