As the asbestos exposure issue continues to spread rampantly around the world, we found a heart-breaking article on the Mirror in the UK detailing the story of a woman who’s lost several close family members from mesothelioma, and now she has a condition that could also be linked to asbestos exposure.
“Although I’d never worked directly with the substance, one of my chores as a little girl was to shake the dust from the men’s overalls on the back doorstep before they went in the wash.
Little did I know the billowing clouds of dust could be so deadly. As the years passed my Dad married again and had two more children. He was a contented man when he retired in 1981. But in just a year after he gave up work, he died of a heart attack at the age of 64. We were devastated.”
