Mesothelioma Cancer News provides news and information for California asbestos attorneys
El Dorado Hills (Mesothelioma Cancer News) – A recent government report has stated that the asbestos levels in El Dorado Hills are not high enough to warrant a full-scale study. As reported by The Sacramento Bee, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry report addressed residents’ concerns that they were at greater risk of asbestos related disease due to area exposure.
Jill Dyken, a federal environmental health scientist, is quoted in the report as stating of the findings, “We don’t think the exposure is high enough that we would be able to measure elevated rates of diseases in the community.” However, the report is said to highlight the importance of dust control and other measures to prevent related exposure to the naturally occuring asbestos.
Asbestos exposure has been linked to serious health conditions such as mesothelioma lung cancer.
