These days, people are constantly communicating with each other. We can text, email, call or video chat with a few clicks on our phones. Answers to pretty much any question can be found online; sharing information is as easy as posting a news story on Facebook. The speed with which we can send and receive information is faster than ever.
Unfortunately, communication -- or rather, the lack of communication -- is often to blame for asbestos-related illnesses. Too many people have developed deadly conditions because they were never told about asbestos and information about how to protect against the toxic fiber was not made as available as it should have been. But after being diagnosed with a mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer, it can be crucial to re-focus on communication.
