Tell the EPA: No half-measures on asbestos

Docket EPA-HQ-OPPT-2021-0057

EPA Administrator Michael Regan,

While I applaud the EPA for moving to ban toxic chrysotile asbestos, I strongly urge you to amend the proposed ban to include the other five types of asbestos: actinolite, amosite, anthophyllite, crocidolite and tremolite.

These other forms are no less dangerous than the one the current proposed rule would ban. The well-established links between asbestos and cancer apply to all six types of this toxic mineral, wherever they are found. Please take this crucial step for Americans' health and ban all forms of asbestos, not just one.
