Asbestos Still Causing Cancer and Still Being Used

Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. It was expected for mesothelioma diagnoses to start declining in 2006 however the CDC reported an inexplicable jump in mesothelioma diagnoses for individuals under 55 years old. That means that people are still be subjected to asbestos exposure.

Despite the well-known fact that asbestos causes a particularly insidious form of cancer which is completely avoidable it is still legal in the United States. While asbestos usage is not nearly as widespread as it was prior to 1970, it is currently still used in more than a dozen products. The Environmental Protection Agency lists those products which are still being made with asbestos:

  • Cement corrugated sheet
  • Cement flat sheet
  • Clothing
  • Pipeline wrap
  • Roofing felt
  • Vinyl floor tile
  • Cement shingle
  • Millboard
  • Cement pipe
  • Automatic transmission components
  • Clutch facings
  • Friction materials
  • Disk brake pads
  • Drum brake linings
  • Brake blocks
  • Gaskets
  • Non-roofing coatings
  • Roof coatings
