HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mesothelioma.us, an online resource filled with educational articles for people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, has just posted an exhaustive list of the hundreds of companies that have manufactured asbestos.
As a spokesperson for http://mesothelioma.us/ notes, the number of companies that have been involved with asbestos manufacturing over the years is staggering. The pull-down list, which is organized in alphabetical order, includes many well-known names, including AT&T Corporation, the Chrysler Corporation, Owens-Corning Fiberglass and many others.
The founders of Mesothelioma.us were inspired to create the exhaustive list of asbestos manufacturers by their desire to educate as many people as possible about sources of asbestos. They also realize that the most common way to get mesothelioma is by directly working with asbestos, so they want to spread the word about which companies made the fibers.
In addition to being exposed to asbestos while at work, people have also contracted mesothelioma after direct physical contact with the clothes of someone who worked with the toxic fibers. By reading through the list of companies that manufactured asbestos, people may realize they came in regular contact with people who worked in one of these firms.
"There are numerous cases of spouses of miners and construction workers who have developed mesothelioma from breathing in the fibers that their husbands or wives brought home with them from the plant, mine or construction site," the spokesperson said, adding that today, mesothelioma is one of the most commonly recognized industrial or workplace diseases.
Mesothelioma.us also contains a large number of comprehensive resources for people who have been diagnosed with the cancer, which attacks the linings of the lungs, stomach or heart.
"The website includes up-to-date information on treatment options, major U.S. cancer centers, government clinical trials, mesothelioma lawyers and veterans' claims and benefit information," the spokesperson said, adding that the site has helped people from every state in the United States.
