Wyoming Health Watch Week-In-Review 1/13/20: Asbestos & Talcum Powder Update

Welcome to the 2020 Wyoming Health Watch. WHW was founded on the premise that through the product litigations we are involved with, we wanted to bring consumer safety information to the Rocky Mountain Region, free of charge, no strings attached, so we can make a difference in people’s lives. Thanks to many of you, the beginning of Wyoming Health Watch 2019 was an enormous success and we decided to expand its base so we could impact and bring value to as many people as possible. If you are receiving Wyoming Health Watch for the first time, it’s because we consider you a friend and hope that you will help us with the hopes that we can, together, prevent a catastrophe. Thanks for being part of our team and please feel free to share with those you love.
