When you hear the word “asbestos” it might come off sounding dated, like some fad (albeit a harmful one) from the 70′s or 80′s that’s come and gone. But the truth is that asbestos can still be found in consumer products, homes and schools, and some workplaces. And for people whose employment history includes work in industries where long-term exposure to asbestos was the norm, health problems linked to asbestos — including mesothelioma and other forms of lung cancer exposure — may only now be showing up.
Nolo has expanded its online coverage of asbestos, mesothelioma, and related health problems — including information on where asbestos can be found, and tips on what to do if you or a loved one are worried about serious health problems linked to long-term asbestos exposure.
