Government regulation of asbestos
Government regulation in the US concerning the use of asbestos is slowing the incidence of the development of Mesothelioma in the US, but it does not stop companies in other parts of the world to continue placing their employees at risk for this awful disease. Only international regulation of this compound will finally slow and eventually stop the rate of increase in the cases of Mesothelioma cancer.
