Alabama Mesothelioma and Asbestos

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that affects the pleura (the lining of the lungs), the peritoneum (the lining of the abdomen), and the pericardium (the lining of the heart). The disease is caused by exposure to asbestos, a naturally occurring fiber that was in a range of products and materials until its use was banned by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the 1970s. Despite the ban, thousands of Americans have developed mesothelioma in the past few decades.

Industries/Occupations Most Affected by Mesothelioma Deaths

In 2008, Alabama's economic output was at $170 billion; some of the state's largest industries include the automobile manufacturing, mineral extraction, steel production, and steel manufacturing fields. Many of these job types have been associated with high rates of malignant mesothelioma among workers because asbestos fibers were commonly used in car products and at manufacturing sites due to its durability and heat-resistant capabilities.
