While asbestos use may have been halted since it was discovered that inhaling the fibers can lead to lung cancer and other respiratory diseases in humans, but the after-effects continue to live on today in South Dakota. Perhaps you’ve been employed in the construction business, working with drywall and concrete materials, and regularly exposed to asbestos. Years later you learn that you’ve contracted a rare form of cancer known as “mesothelioma,” a disease which can appear in the human body anywhere from 10 to 50 years after exposure.
