This State plays host to a portion of the infamous Rocky Mountains and because of this is burdened by some risk of natural asbestos contact as a result. The panhandle of Idaho is also home to a couple key asbestos buildups.

Industries in Idaho

Idaho’s main industries are agriculture and technology neither of which have posed a significant threat of asbestos exposure in the past. Due to the very low occurrence of mesothelioma and asbestos disease there is almost no litigation related to it. The EPA handles most asbestos related issues in this state.

Deaths by Asbestos

Owing to the fact that incidents involving asbestos related cancer are rare the number of asbestos related deaths are considerably lower than the national average. Over the last twenty years there have been less than 200 asbestos fatalities in this state.
