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