The United States Senate recently passed S. RES. 427, a resolution which both urges the Surgeon General to warn and educate Americans as to the severe dangers of asbestos exposure and declares the first week of April to be "National Asbestos Awareness Week."
Linda Reinstein, CEO and Co-founder of the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), congratulated the U.S. Senate in unanimously passing S. RES. 427 and attempting to increase public awareness about asbestos. "For the past six years, ADAO has seen that a week of awareness enables agencies, institutions and organizations to promote regulatory compliance and enforcement. Americans deserve and want to know how to prevent asbestos in their homes or in the workplace."
Scientific studies have suggested that up to 100,000 workers worldwide will die of asbestos-related diseases in the next 10 years, including lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
