Asbestos in Iowa

For decades, Iowa buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many Iowa residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.

The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so Iowa workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of Iowa asbestos exposure sites include:

  • Iowa factories
  • Powerplants in Iowa
  • Refineries or Chemical Plants in Iowa
