Erionite May Cause Mesothelioma

In western North Dakota, erionite is everywhere. Many of the roads in the region are covered with erionite that has been mined from the Deerkill Mountains. Now, state officials and the EPA are trying to do testing to determine whether the substance causes mesothelioma. The decision to perform this study comes in the wake of a slightly different type of erionite being found to be a carcinogen.

Now the EPA and health officials are looking for around 50 people to get x-rays and CT scans for the study. However, they are having trouble finding people. So far, fewer than 10 people have signed up for the study. This may be  because many people in the region may not want to know whether or not the substance is dangerous. With so much erionite spread across the region, there is not much that could be done if it is found to be carcinogenic.

 If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact the North Dakota mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.
