LegalView Announces Newest Mesothelioma Blog Highlighting Asbestos Legislation

LegalView's newest blog highlights the most recent moves from the American Public Health Association to ban products containing asbestos in the United States.

Denver, CO, December 15, 2009 --(, the leader in online legal resources, is pleased to announce their most recent mesothelioma information site update, further adding to the extensive resources the company provides on its mesothelioma blog, located at This post informs the mesothelioma community about the attempts by the American Public Health Association (APHA) pressuring Congress to pass legislation banning the sale, manufacture, import and export of asbestos in the U.S. Not only would this protect the interests of all Americans, but surely reduce the number of serious health concerns from asbestos exposure as well as the possibility of workers needing to develop mesothelioma case against their employer.

The APHA is the oldest, largest and most diverse organization of public health professionals in the world, according to their website. The dedicated members of this organization have long championed the health of the average American citizen. Through community-based healthcare initiatives, disease prevention activities, and the publication of two of the most respected journals among health professionals worldwide, the American Journal of Public Health and The Nation's Health, the APHA works tirelessly to ensure the health of every American while providing information for health care professionals and legal professionals, like a mesothelioma lawyer, across the globe.

The APHA has been adamant in their push for the removal of asbestos from the U.S. market. The legislation proposed is strong and clearly worded; it would effectively remove almost all asbestos and products containing asbestos from being manufactured in the U.S. In a statement released from the organization, the Chair of APHA's Occupational Health and Safety section, Celeste Monforton, DrPH, MPH, said, "With this new policy, APHA is joining the World Federation of Public Health Associations and other international organizations calling for a global ban on asbestos mining, and manufacturing, and the dangerous practice of exporting asbestos containing products." This could reduce the possibility of employers in the manufacturing and production business from being the target of a potential asbestos mesothelioma lawsuit or similar litigation.

Despite the widespread knowledge of the dangers of asbestos, some companies continue to use products containing the toxic substance in manufacturing and production, especially in fields such as building materials, especially insulation, roofing tiles, Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC), and flame-retardant materials. Many of these employers may not realize the seriousness of the health concerns or the possibility that an employee affected by an asbestos-related health concern could very easily contact a mesothelioma attorney for information about possible asbestos litigation.
