Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Canadian Mesothelioma Cases Skyrocket

According to a new report published by the Canadian Press, the number of cases of mesothelioma in Canada has exploded by 67% over the past 15 years. Mesothelioma is a virulent type of cancer linked with exposure to asbestos, used in various construction capacities for decades. While the country now has laws against using the fiber in new construction projects, asbestos is still present in older buildings.

Additionally, Canada continues to be one of the major exporters of asbestos, sending about 190,000 tons to mostly poor, developing countries every year. The mining of chrysotile asbestos continues to be a big industry in Montreal.
