MARF supports ban asbestos in US

The Ban Asbestos in American Act of 2007 have gotten the support of the mesothelioma community and mesothelioma patients at large. There have been explanation on the mportant of this Ban because the use of asbestos poses a threat to the American lives.

Also the important of asbestos are numerous because it is a good material for many things, but in as much as it harms lives than do good to lives, then the US considers it as not acceptable.

The Senator Patty Murray was the frontier in the execution of this ban, and she is fully supported by the mesothelioma patients, and the community.

The numer of families that have died as a result of exposure to asbestos are too many. It is first the problem of asbestos workers, and then it becomes the problem of family memeber, because workers go home with their clothes, and unknowingly the family inhale the substance.
From there is becomes the problem of residents, and people living around factories and mines. All these put together show how harmful and dangerous this asbestos is.
It goes into the system, and forms a settlement, and then it continues to spread in a malignant way over a period of 20 years or more. And when you think you can be someone in live, the mesothelioma cancer surfaces and then you are faced with decisions of life and death. Most of the decisions are usually death.

There were also many testimonies about this deadly substance. One of them is the wife of former congress man Bruce Vento, whose husband died having mesothelioma cancers in 2000. He died 10 months after his diagnosis of mesothelioma.

Presently, Vento now serves as one of the Board of directors of the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF).

As said this malignant mesothelioma cancer spread throught the infected site painfully and aggressively, until it finaly destroys the organ.

The estimate of mesothelioma patients that die in a year is around 3,000, and the ban could significantly reduce this number if properly executed.

This foundation have received many awards over the years, and they are committed to finding a lasting and reliable solution to the case of mesothelioma.

They provide all mesothelioma resources that patients ned, and if you need help they are right at your service.
