Click on asbestos.com/mesothelioma/ for a free, recently published, educational guide about mesothelioma. According to David Sides, the Public Outreach Coordinator at The Mesothelioma Center, “Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening illnesses that are a result of exposure to asbestos, a material that was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, products, and ships because of its resistance to fire. Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma even qualify for special benefits from the U.S Department of Veteran Affairs.”
