Asbestosis Deaths

Here is a link to an interesting report on deaths caused by asbestosis in the U.S. This report was compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. The report states that there are over 1,000 deaths from asbestosis per year in the United States. It also believes that there may be a 40 year gap between the time of exposure and the time when symptoms of asbestosis begin to appear. It further suggests that deaths from asbestosis will continue for at least another 10 years even though asbestos is no longer in widespread use.
