ABC News recently released new information revealing the inherent problem of asbestos in many of the mills in use throughout north Queensland that were in operation all the way up to the 1980s. Specifically, sugar industry workers are the ones who now seem to be developing asbestos-related illnesses and these maladies are believed to be a direct result of working in the sugar mills which were insulated by asbestos.
As more and more cases arise, more and more legal claims will likely be made - as they should be. Both in the U.S. and abroad, the employees of some work industries are more susceptible to the possibility of illness than others, especially when they are exposed to harmful materials such as asbestos.
