Maryland

According to the 2000 census, there are 5.6 million people that live in the state of Maryland. Over the past 20 years, one person out of every 5000 passed away from asbestos poisoning; Half of those who died, were from the Baltimore area. Although the statistics are higher than that of the rest of the nation; most of the deaths were caused by asbestosis rather than mesothelioma. The fact is it’s widely known that asbestosis is way more common, and also less deadly because it’s treatable. So why is it causing more deaths than Mesothelioma?   Although it cannot be proven some believe it’s because it’s not caught in time. If you find that you are at risk, for whatever reason, you should search out medical care from the various mesothelioma clinics in Maryland.

Construction

One of the products made by Supradur Manufacturing in the making of their cement and in the building of the Stadium of the University of Maryland was asbestos. In order to make buildings less flammable, if it ever caught fire, asbestos fibers were used in the mixture and upon inspection of found to have asbestos problems.

Power Plants & Shipyards

Because the statistics are so much higher in Maryland, the National Cancer Institute got involved.  A special study was made of former employees of the Curtis Bay Coast Guard shipyard, who specifically worked from 1950-1963 and they compared them to the general population and they found that shipyard workers were more at risk.

When inquiry was made into Maryland’s power generating facilities, it was found that they ran comparable risks.  Interesting to note that a study was published in Puerto Rico on Nov. 2007 showing 13% of all chest x-rays taken of power plant workers in that country backed up what was being found in Maryland. The following are known power plants in Maryland that have been identified as asbestos sites:

  • Basco Power Electric
  • Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant
  • Glen Burnie Powerhouse

(ACMs) Asbestos-containing materials, are used in these sites as protection in electrical cloth tape, electrical conduits, and as turbine and generator protectors. The most common of these is the crocidolite asbestos kind, known for being an outstanding electrical insulator as well as fire resistant. Medical care is imperative for those workers that have been exposed to asbestos.
