Asbestos Hot Spot - Gujarat, India
Sunday, November 30, 2008

The International Ban Asbestos Secretariat (IBAS) has recently published a report entitled India’s Asbestos Time Bomb that calls Gujarat, India the "Asbestos Hot Spot". Gujarat's "Golden Corridor" is filled with more than 31,000 factories involved in power production, ship-breaking, cement manufacturing, chemical and pharmaceutical production and manufacturing of insulation, friction products and safety equipment. This industrial activity causes routine occupational exposure to asbestos, which can cause mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestos related diseases and other serious illnesses. Asbestos-related diseases kill more workers than any other occupational disease. Although the number of people in India developing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases is growing, very few receive any compensation for their occupational disease.
