  • Description:
    This brief overview describes the primary adverse effects of asbestos exposure, clinician guidelines for assessing patient risk for asbestos-related disease, and clinical evaluation techniques and strategies for providing advice to patients.

    Exposure to asbestos was a major occupational health hazard in the United States. The first large-scale use of asbestos in the United States began in 1896. Since 1989, all new uses of asbestos have been banned in the United States by the Environmental Protection Agency.

    The adverse effects of asbestos on health have been known for several decades. These effects include pleural changes, asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.

    Some of the information is from the Minnesota Department of Health’s Asbestos Disease: An Overview for Clinicians
