The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) has made an educational slideshow titled “ – See for Yourself” available online. The slides feature striking images of actual fibers, as well as products that contain or historical products that used to be made with . The slideshow is concluded with a short video.

The photographic educational campaign was created to promote asbestos week, April 1-7, but it is available as a resource online anytime. Additionally, there is a sidebar featuring links to a wealth of other slideshow presentations providing information about asbestos, many of them compiled by experts.

The mission of ADAO is trifold – Advocacy, Community, and Education. The organization was founded by Linda Reinstein and Doug Larkin on April 1, 2004. Its mission is global in nature, dedicated to preventing asbestos-related diseases by encouraging a worldwide ban of asbestos, creating a network of support for asbestos victims, their families and caregivers; educating the public about the dangers of asbestos, and supporting research for detection, treatment and an eventual cure for asbestos diseases.

     Thanks for this article. I was reasearching for information about asbestos and mesothelioma since my grandfather was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma. I guess that’s his reward for 40 years of working in construction. We took legal action and are currently working with Flood Law Group, LLP. I would recomend that course of action for all patients with  mesothelioma, asbestosis or another type of asbestos-caused illness
