The Human Face of an Asbestos Epidemic

Touching video about the various people in Britain who have contracted, are battling and who have died of mesothelioma. Asbestos in the UK is much worse than in the States. 2000 people die annually from mesothelioma and the trend is rising. While this is Britain, it still applies to everybody. The reason these people are talking is because they want others to demand protection and enforce the rules. Many of them say it’s too late for them, but they want to help and educate others.

The human face of an asbestos epidemic is touching, but it’s also a call to make sure you advocate for yourself, before it’s too late.

Kindly provided by the Health & Safety Executive.gov website. Mesothelioma is an incurable asbestos cancer. Asbestos remains Britain’s biggest workplace killer. More people die from asbestos related disease each year than on Britain’s road, yet there is little government funding for medical research. Last year in Britain about 2000 people died from mesothelioma, this trend is still rising. This video (Produced by Forum of Asbestos Victim Support Groups) is the story of exposure to asbestos and the cancer it can cause, told by those who have first-hand knowledge.
