Asbestos in Alaska
For decades, Alaska buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many Alaska residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.
The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so Alaska workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of Alaska asbestos exposure sites include:
- Alaska factories
- Powerplants in Alaska
- Refineries or Chemical Plants in Alaska
