The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization has released a short public service announcement video highlighting the dangers of the toxic fiber, asbestos.
The short, 30-second film titled Asbestos: The Killer You Can’t See, uses a young girl to demonstrate how asbestos fibers, which are too small to be seen by the human eye, are responsible for the death of her father. The video is available in six languages — English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Hindu, and French — in order to reach as many people as possible. The organization also hopes to reach nations who still mine asbestos or continue to use the material in everyday products.
According to a report in Business Wire, the organization wanted to “highlight the danger of asbestos rather than overwhelm viewers with statistics” and the simplicity of this animated video does just that.
