I highly recommend that anyone with an interest in learning more about asbestos and asbestos-related diseases — the tragic asbestos cancer mesothelioma in particular — take some time to visit this site: “No Safe Use” (Copyright 2014 The Globe and Mail Inc. All Rights).
It starts with a haunting picture of John Nolan, age 67, blinking his eyes, and this interactive site allows you the option of listening to Mr. Nolan tell the story of his battle with mesothelioma, a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.
Thereafter, you will find this seven-part journalistic report about the current asbestos problem in Canada with each part presenting some additional powerful photographs related to this terrible situation.
- Part 1: The Invisible Epidemic (which tell us more about the above-mentioned John Nolan)
- Part 2: Exposure Is Still Widespread
- Part 3: The Boom Years
- Part 4: Six Months To Live
- Part 5: Officially Safe In Canada
- Part 6: What Can Be Done
- Part 7: “Stuck In This Body”
From this tremendous piece of work, we leave you with a child’s note:
