Mesothelioma/Asbestos-Related Illness Archives

How asbestos exposure can lead to cancers like mesothelioma

Throughout the history of the world, people have been mining and using asbestos for its fire-resistant properties. In the latter part of the 19th century, the mining, manufacturing and use of asbestos exploded across the world. Unfortunately, so did its harmful health effects. Despite this, the asbestos industry continued to thrive, reaching its peak in the mid-1970s. At this point, its use began to decline as the world finally understood the substance's potential for harm to living beings.

Researchers test potentially effective treatment for mesothelioma

Even though the use of asbestos peaked between the 1960s and 1980s, the truth is that you can still find this deadly material in many homes today -- especially in homes that haven't been renovated in the last 30+ years. Couple this with the fact that asbestos-related conditions such as mesothelioma can take decades to manifest themselves, it is no wonder why asbestos continues to claim thousands of lives every year.
