The bottom line is simple: Asbestos causes deadly cancers and other diseases, including incurable mesothelioma, and kills an estimated 15,000 people in the US every year — yet companies still continue to import and use it, knowingly sickening innocent Americans. 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is now embarking on a review and regulation process that is slated to take up to five years. During that time, tens of thousands will continue to face deadly exposures.

But there's a way we can ban this known killer even faster: The EPA has the option of enacting a ban NOW, utilizing existing research (of which there is a ton) as supportive evidence. 

The EPA has put decades worth of time and dollars into research asbestos — they have all the data they need to ban this killer completely — without any loopholes or exemptions that allow greedy corporations to keep using it.  

Rather than spending more years and more money to determine what we already know to be true, we urge the EPA to heed existing data BAN ASBESTOS NOW!
