Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer fatalities in both men and women. Each year more people die of lung cancer than colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. While lung cancer is commonly attributed to smoking, exposure to asbestos has also been proven to increase the risk of developing lung cancer.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has determined that the higher the concentration of asbestos fibers a person is exposed to, the higher the risk of lung cancer. Individuals in occupations where asbestos or dust is present in a confined area carry an elevated risk of developing an asbestos-related disease.
High-Risk Asbestos Industries Include:
- Chemical Plants
- Power Plants
- Steel Mills
