Asbestos & Mesothelioma High Risk Occupations
Since asbestos was so widely used throughout the 20th century, almost everyone could potentially be exposed to this toxic substance at some point in his or her life. The fireproof mineral was sprayed on school ceilings, used in roofing materials, and hung as drywall in homes and offices. While anyone can be diagnosed with mesothelioma if they have had asbestos exposure, most cases involve people who have had prolonged exposure to asbestos in the course of their employment. If you fall into any of the following categories, you may be at an increased risk of developing mesothelioma:
- Shipyard Workers
- Construction and Building Trades
- Military Veterans, particularly from the 1930s to 1970s
- Demolition Crews
- Automotive Mechanics or Brake Workers
- Manufacturing, Power Plant, Refinery, or Chemical Employees
- Mining and Milling Employees

Now, decades later, those who served so faithfully in the military are experiencing medical complications as a result of their asbestos exposure.
