Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

New York contractors charged with asbestos-related crimes

Two New York contractors have been charged with asbestos-related crimes by the State Attorney General’s Office, after allegedly dumping asbestos-contaminated materials improperly.

One of the men is the of owner Peerless Environmental Control, a local asbestos abatement contractor, and the other man is a self-employed contractor. The two men allegedly disposed of over five tons of asbestos-contaminated materials in an abandoned warehouse in Buffalo.

Asbestos exposure is the primary cause of the mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that develops after asbestos particles are disturbed and inhaled. Improperly disposing the known carcinogen causes the materials to be disturbed and can become a hazard to the public.
