Mesothelioma- a lung disease

I never knew this kind of disease existed, thanks to the technology of internet, information is easily access and a thirty minute browsing will give you loads of information about a certain thing you want to know. And if you want to know what mesothelioma is I suggest you visit their site. From what I read there, it is an asbestos-caused cancer of the membranes that surround many of the body’s vital organs.

So beware of being expose to asbestos because it is the only confirmed cause of mesothelioma. According to the site, asbestos is a mineral that was crushed and milled into a fine particulate, and then shipped to corporations for use in building and insulation materials. You can view more of asbestos here.

And according to National Association of Certified Home Inspectors

“A common form of magnesium silicate which was used in various construction products... Asbestos exposure (caused by inhaling loose asbestos fibers) is associated with various forms of lung disease [including mesothelioma]... its extremely fine fibers are easily inhaled, and exposure to them over a period of years has been linked to cancers of the lung or lung-cavity lining and to asbestosis, a severe lung impairment.”

At least, it is good to be informed right?
