The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization Praises Senator Baucus for Introducing the Ninth Annual Resolution Establishing "National Asbestos Awareness Week"

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), which combines education, advocacy and community as the leading U.S. organization serving as the voice of asbestos victims, today applauds Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) and cosponsors for again introducing Senate Resolution 66 designating the first week of April as "National Asbestos Awareness Week" that seeks to "raise public awareness about the prevalence of asbestos-related diseases and the dangers of asbestos exposure."

"ADAO applauds the U.S. Senate for its introduction of the Ninth Annual Resolution recognizing National Asbestos Awareness Week," said Linda Reinstein, President and Co-Founder of the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization. "As a mesothelioma widow, it is still shocking to me that most Americans are unaware that asbestos has not been banned and exposure continues at home, work, and in our children's schools. Since 2005, educational collaborative efforts have increased, as prevention remains the only cure for mesothelioma and other asbests-caused diseases. We know education saves dollars and lives and ADAO looks forward to the U.S. Senate unanimously passing this important Resolution designating April 1 - 7 to be a week of awareness to protect families throughout the nation."


"Sadly, we do not have a cure for cancers caused by asbestos, but they are preventable. Asbestos Awareness Week promotes saving lives through prevention. On behalf of ADAO, thank you Senator Baucus, and your supporters Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA (News - Alert)), Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL), Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) for helping us save lives through designating a week for asbestos disease awareness to remind the American public that asbestos-related diseases still occur but that the good news is they can be prevented," said Dr. Richard A. Lemen, ADAO Science Advisory Co-Chair and retired Assistant Surgeon General.

Asbestos is a known human carcinogen and exposure can cause mesothelioma, lung, gastrointestinal, laryngeal and ovarian cancers, as well as non-malignant lung and pleural disorders. The World Health Organization estimates that 107,000 workers around the world will die every year of an asbestos-related disease - equaling 300 deaths per day.

ADAO will hold its Ninth Annual International Asbestos Awareness Conference on March 23 in Washington, D.C. To register for ADAO's 2013 conference, visit the following link: http://bit.ly/Svdp0c
