The Effect of Asbestos Worldwide
The amount of deaths asbestos has caused is incredible. Its use across the world has been curtailed in recent years but it is still being used in many developing countries. Thousands of people are still dying from exposure to asbestos.
What is amazing is despite asbestos being widely reported as causing cancer, it is still being used. The sad truth is that the effects of asbestos may take up to 40 years from exposure to cancer diagnosis. As a result of this a massive amount of asbestos related deaths are expected by 2030.
