On September 26th, we are proud to celebrate National Mesothelioma Awareness Day.

To honor this day, we are trying to spread awareness by educating as many online communities about the dangers of asbestos exposure and

how it can lead to this terminal disease.

Asbestos was used as insulation in buildings
for centuries and

can be a threat to workers and homeowners making these green improvements.

You too have the opportunity to dispel some of the myths surrounding this environmental hazard,

while promoting National Mesothelioma Awareness Day.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have ...

If you don't like it, then don't buy it. It's that simple. The economy takes primacy over stupid nanny state agitation at the moment.

Hmm, well buyer beware? However, as a Canadian I must support anyone that worked legally in Canada and as a result was exposed to Asbestos and should receive medical, WCB and financial compensation for exposure if it results in disease..
