Banning asbestos in United States important, but only the start

The dangers of asbestos have been known for a long time. Asbestos, a term that refers to several naturally occurring minerals, is the primary cause of mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control, roughly 2,500 Americans are diagnosed with the disease each year.

Former worker seeks compensatory damages re asbestos exposure

How many Minnesota residents are currently suffering fatal illnesses contracted by ingesting microscopic asbestos fibers in the workplace? It's impossible to give an exact number because many affected workers are currently unaware of their conditions. A man in another state is not only aware of his lung cancer, but he and his wife have filed a claim against several companies they say should be held financially accountable for his illness, which is believed to have been caused by repeated asbestos exposure on the job.

Covering the high cost of treating mesothelioma

Cancer treatment is expensive. According to the National Institutes of Health and Asbestos.com, the cost of treating mesothelioma can range from $100,000 to $250,000. Lung surgery costs about $40,000 and chemotherapy treatments cost around $30,000 per session after the $7,000 initial session.

With steely courage, they seem invincible. Except they are not. In addition to the dangers posed by fire and potential collapsing structures, firefighters must also contend with toxic substances such as asbestos. Firefighters need to be aware; these materials can be deadly.

The Right Diet Can Be A Game Changer For People With Mesothelioma

The push for Americans to eat healthier is nothing new. Health experts have been pushing for years for people to make better choices with what they put into their bodies. While eating healthy is good for everyone, there are several reasons why it may be important for people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Asbestos exposure causes family in another to state to evacuate

Many Minnesota residents understand how stressful it can be to renovate a home, especially if a household includes young children. A family in another state hired a contractor to work on their house, including the removal of a popcorn ceiling, which is a specific type of ceiling design that is textured and often poses an asbestos exposure risk. The situation led to the family's evacuation when homeowners say they found spilled debris throughout their house after the contractor had been working there.
