Asbestos, America’s Legal Killer: Asbestos Is a Known Carcinogen

September 26, 2014  |  Mesothelioma

Asbestos is a known and very serious carcinogen.

What does that mean?

The short definition is:

car·cin·o·gen noun
medical : a substance that can cause cancer

The long definition is:

carcinogen: any substance that is directly involved in causing cancer. Carcinogens may cause cancer by damaging the human genome or disrupting the cellular metabolic process — two things you do not want to happen.

Now remember that childhood math equation? If a = b and b = c, then a = c?

How about this:

If asbestos is a carcinogen

And if carcinogens cause cancer,

Then asbestos causes cancer.

It’s a fact — and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), World Health Organization, U.S. Surgeon General (2013) and the International Labor Organization have all said it.
