Asbestos Resource

We are often inundated with spam and other nonsense in our emails and inbox, however sometimes there are actually good tidbits that come as result of technology today and the information highway. The following is an email that was received and seems to be creditable and worth looking into.

asbestos.com
With more than 3,000 pages of content, our site features information on asbestos, mesothelioma, and other cancers that are caused by asbestos exposure. Unlike other sites, Asbestos.com has achieved HON code approval (Health On the Net (HON) Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation that works to preserve the accuracy and trustworthiness of Web-based medical information).   Our site has employed a full staff of writers dedicated to research and writing about asbestos exposure and the diseases that result from exposure to the toxic mineral. In addition, our medical adviser and editor, Dr. Mauricio Salazar,M.D., who has worked in the field of cancer treatment for years, has personally reviewed, edited, and approved all medical information on our site.

If you are interested or if you have any other questions, please feel free to e-mail me back at cwoodland(@)asbestos.com or call me at 407-434-0730. Thanks again, I appreciate your time.

Kind Regards,

    I cannot speak to the quality of their site, but if it makes a difference they are sponsored by a law firm like most of the sites you find these days. My advice is to go to a real medical site like one at NIH.gov or Mayo Clinic. Then look for a lawyer site when you have the medical information and need legal advice…! Don’t be fooled.

  2. Ricky,

    I appreciate your comment. Our intention was not to promote any particular website, but we do get requests occasionally to share information. As far as the quality of their site, the information appeared to be accurate and insightful. I agree that if you want to learn more about the subject you should look into other sites as well and sift through all of the biased information out on the web for yourself. If there are specific questions that need to be answered you should consult the medical field directly.

    Thanks for the comment.
