Hundreds of Texans Die from Asbestos Each Year

February 18, 2009

Asbestos poisoning is quited common after being exposed to asbestos. The biggest challenge of mesothelioma and asbestosis cases, is to identify the exact exposure that resulted in mesothelioma, lung cancer and or asbestosis.

Even brief exposure to asbestos can lead to a range of chronic and fatal medical dispositions known as asbestos poisoning diseases. It is also possible to develop these conditions without coming in direct contact with asbestos processing or asbestos products.

At least 259 Texans died in 2002 from just two forms of asbestos disease, according to the most recent data from the National Centers for Health Statistics of the Centers for Disease Control, obtained by the Washington, DC based EWG Action Fund. Mortality is divided roughly evenly between the two diseases, with 132 reported deaths from asbestosis and 127 reported mesothelioma fatalities. More than one third of the deaths in 2002 (103) were in just three metropolitan areas, Houston with 44, Beaumont with 34, and Dallas with 25
