The number of reported cases of people being diagnosed with Mesothelioma has been increasing.
Mesothelioma is most commonly caused by long term exposure to carcinogen “asbestos”, the material used by many industries because of its durability and resistance to fire and chemicals. Its first diagnoses usually occur between the ages of 50 to 70 years in both men and women. It has been observed that mesothelioma occurs much less in African Americans than in Caucasians, however evidence regarding this phenomenon is still being investigated. To add further, mesothelioma studies have found in children to be extremely rare and generally considered not related to asbestos exposure.
Indirect exposures to asbestos have been documented mostly n women. They were observed for those women whose husbands are working on industries handling the carcinogen. Investigation revealed that they must have had second-hand exposure of asbestos while washing their husbands’ clothes that came home from work.
The best way to survive against this deadly cancer is prevention. Workers must be properly informed and appropriated geared when handling these materials. They must learn and follow strict rules to avoid breathing in air filled with microscopic or invisible asbestos fibers.
Unless these conditions are met, the workers will claim that they were not given a safe place to work at.
