Mesothelioma/asbestos-related illness | Navy veterans take heed!

While service members were toiling aboard navy vessels during the World War II era, most had no idea that an additional threat lurked aboard these vessels. This threat carried no weapons and it did not care about political or social viewpoints. It could affect anyone and it had no emotional connections to keep it in check. This threat was asbestos and it occupied nearly every part of the navy in that era.

Can doctors detect mesothelioma early enough to treat?

One of the most tragic things about mesothelioma or other asbestos-related illness is the life expectancy after a patient receives a diagnosis. Typically, patients with this type of cancer live for only a year or so after diagnosis. However, most experts on mesothelioma and asbestos-related illnesses agree that early diagnosis is critical. Unfortunately, making a diagnosis early enough to extend life is often difficult for doctors.

Imported asbestos within the nation's chlorine industry

The mining of asbestos is against the law in the United States because it is linked to severe health hazards such as mesothelioma/asbestos-related illness. However, as this blog recently reported, use of this hazardous substance still occurs in the nation thanks to an ongoing importation of raw asbestos. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the chlor-alkali, or chlorine industry, uses over 90 percent of the asbestos imported into the country.

What are the effects of asbestos poisoning?

Asbestos has a strong reputation for existing in old buildings before the dangerous consequences were fully known. Although toxic, it is actually a naturally occurring mineral that is invisible to the naked eye. It was beneficial to buildings because of its strength and heat resistance.

Family wins huge asbestos-related wrongful death suit

The United States has known about the dangers of asbestos for many decades. States in the nation have struggled to remove asbestos from structures built before its dangers were known. Despite standards surrounding the use and removal of asbestos, it is safe to say that people still suffer from mesothelioma/asbestos-related illnesses. This is especially so for those who were raised in the mid-1900s.

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.

Girl's store chain denies allegations of asbestos in its products

When you shop for your children, you are no doubt interested in finding safe products for them to use. Naturally, you probably expect the products available in large chain stores to be safe and free of toxins. After all, aren't these products and their ingredients tested prior to their release?

Asbestos 1 of first 10 substances under review by government

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has classified asbestos as a known carcinogen. People who have had exposure to significant amounts of this chemical can develop mesothelioma. This type of cancer can impact the tissue that covers the lungs and abdomen. Asbestos can also lead to lung cancer.

Why diagnosing mesothelioma in its early stages makes a difference

When mesothelioma is diagnosed in its early stages, the life expectancy of the patient is generally longer than if it's not caught until the later stages. When people are still in stage 1 or 2 of the cancer, it often responds well to surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Early-stage mesothelioma patients are also more likely to qualify for clinical trials than later-stage ones.

Asbestos exposure can lead to health trauma

We recently discussed the issue of the rising mesothelioma death rate. This troublesome news brings the highlight back onto the difficult issue of asbestos-related illnesses and the horrible outcome that these cases come with. We know that many people who are suffering from these illnesses were only trying to make an honest living when they were exposed to asbestos. Corporate greed and a lax safety system have put these workers in danger.
