Letter to the Editor: Asbestos exposure
While firefighters have one of the most heroic and dangerous careers, you may think their main concern would be fire. There are also environmental hazards that affect firefighters including Asbestos exposure. Asbestos materials that are burned can cause fibers to be easily released into the air to be inhaled by firefighters; this inevitably could cause mesothelioma cancer.
Unfortunately a lot of asbestos exposure can lead to this deadly disease which has no cure. My name is Sarah Anderson and I am the Communications Director for www.mesotheliomasymptoms.com. Lets work together to help raise awareness of this deadly fiber. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
