asbestos removalAsbestos has long been known to be a health risk for decades. As with anything else that has been in the news for so long, the question becomes how serious of a problem is asbestos today in 2015. 

We know that exposure to asbestos is a bad thing. It can lead to lung cancer, chronic shortness of breath, or mesothelioma. Because these illnesses can take years, if not decades, to develop, the initial uses of asbestos were many and varied throughout developing countries. 

But is asbestos still a problem today?

In Canada, yes it is. Asbestos is still very prevalent in Canada today. In fact Canada now faces an invisible epidemic: mesothelioma. Asbestos is still the top on-the-job-killer in Canada in 2015.
