In this video from ADAO90278 shared in November 2009, we learn about the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization and the work that it does. Dr. Richard Leme, a retired assistant surgeon general and co-chair of the organization explains what asbestos is and the dangers of exposure to the material.
The video also features the wives and family members of people who have died from asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. They explain the symptoms of the diseases their loved ones died from and how asbestos exposure can be avoided. The organization works to raise the profile of asbestos-related diseases and to campaign for laws to ban asbestos.
