A list of print and online resources: asbestos related diseases

If you have been looking for clinics and online resources for asbestos related diseases and have not been able to find what you are looking for, Weitz & Luxenberg would like to help. We have compiled a list of print and online resources. Asbestos related diseases are serious, and affect far too many Americans.

Whether you or someone you love suffers from an asbestos related disease, we provide this information in the hopes of promoting awareness of the resources available to all who suffer from asbestos related diseases, and in making those resources directly available to all who could benefit from them.

Print resources: asbestos related diseases information in books

Some of these books are written by doctors for other doctors, and others are more journalistic, and tell the story of asbestos. Others are written for patients, and are aimed more toward helping you understand and find ways to cope with your asbestos related disease. We have included them all, so you can choose which resources on asbestos related diseases are best for you.

Online resources: asbestos related diseases information on the internet

In terms of resources for asbestos related diseases, the internet can be an excellent source of information, because it is much easier to update a web page than it is to publish a new edition of a book. The internet also has its drawbacks: you want to be sure the web sites you go to are trustworthy. Each site we list below is one that we feel has current, trustworthy information.
