PLACES YOU CAN FIND HELP

Help for those exposed to Asbestos

Another site for Information on Mesothelioma (Related to Abestos)

Were you exposed to asbestos while serving your country? Unfortunately it is possbile that you were. First of all, not everyone exposed to asbestos is going to come down with any of the dieases related to asbestos. However, if you were, you should be aware of the danger signs. You will find a lot of good information on this website.

1. If you served in the Navy or Marine Corp and served aboard any floating vessel you may have been exposed to asbestos. It was used to wrap most of the Pipes and Boiler equipment.

2. In the Army, The White gloves used by artillerymen, tankers, mortar crews and in motor pool areas, the White Blanket that hung nearby to wrap up persons who accidently caught on fire or replacment of brake pads that contained asbestos was in the dust inside the hub that was blown out.

3. Did you ever smoke the cigarette that had the "Micronite Filter"? What do you suppose that filter was made of? You got it!! Be Safe!! Live a normal happy life. Good luck and God be with you.
