Trump Says Asbestos Is A Mob Conspiracy, EPA Won't Evaluate

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is changing how it evaluates the dangers of asbestos.

EPA head Scott Pruitt announced the changes last week.

Now, asbestos used throughout homes and businesses in the US will go unchecked.

President Donald Trump has called the substance “100 percent safe, once applied.” Huffington Post reports that nearly 15,000 Americans die each year from asbestos-related diseases.
