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