To discover a prevention or cure for asbestos related malignancies is one of the great challenges of modern medicine.
Australia has the most enlightened and experienced asbestos diseases researchers in the world. However, regrettably they are not being sufficiently funded and frankly they are being let down by successive Commonwealth and State Governments.
To achieve successful medical intervention and save the lives of asbestos diseases victims we need an honest and sensible approach by our Federal and State politicians, now.
Our asbestos diseases researchers need to receive a minimum of between 15 to 20 million dollars per year. Think how many innocent lives could have already been saved had our researchers received an honest consideration to fund their noble lifesaving work.
