This State is known for its affiliation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and subsequently the risks that are associated with it. Cape Canaveral is the location of one of NASA’s main launch and production facilities and because of this fact the risk of asbestos exposure there are strikingly higher than many areas in the country. The southern half of Florida has statistically been more susceptible to asbestos related cancer do to a large number of power and electrical facilities. Brevard and Broward Counties have had the highest rates of asbestos related disease in the state.
