Asbestos Has Not Been Banned

Despite its well-documented dangers, you may be shocked to learn that asbestos has yet to be banned in the United States. Doctors and scientists agree: asbestos is a carcinogen and there is no safe level of exposure. Congress can and should pass legislation to ban asbestos-containing products and fund educational and research programs.
We urge you to support the Committee Print version that calls for ban of asbestos products.
