I was just alerted by a colleague at the World Health Organization (WHO) that about their six asbestos tweets posted today.  Please share this blog and/or retweet the @WHO tweets directly from their Twitter page at https://twitter.com/WHO

ADAO continues to use the WHO July 2010 Fact sheet N°343, “Asbestos: elimination of asbestos-related diseases,” as a main resource for Congress and our international community goo.gl/dhjD0.  Show your unity and embrace this social media collaborative effort today!

‏@WHO The most efficient way to eliminate asbestos-related diseases is to stop the use of all types of asbestos. goo.gl/dhjD0

@WHO In some countries, asbestos is still used for insulation in buildings, in a number of products incl. water supply lines. goo.gl/dhjD0
