    My mother died in 2004 after suffering from asbestos related illness in her lungs. Drs. claimed she got the dust off Dad's clothes when washing them during the week. She finally died of pulmonary fribrosis and had been on oxygen for her last years. Dad welded and was exposed to asbestos in Mankato, Minnesota during the 40's and 50's. He continued welding in Org. and CA 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, until his retirement. It was a slow painful death for Mom. Dad did get an emphysema bubble also in his lung and died shortly after that with what they called 'adult leukemia'.

    My father and I have COPD. Both of us were in the Navy. He got out around 1952 and I got our in 1971. I know the boiler room had Asbestos all over. Is Asbestos a factor in causing COPD?
