Mesothelioma is a terrible and fatal disease caused by asbestos exposure. “Meso”, as its sometimes called, is a fatal injury to the person first contaminated and their family when they are secondarily exposed because the fibers are carried home on clothing, etc., from work.
Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that is naturally occurring and has been used in a multitude of products due to its relative strength, heat resistance and insulation abilities. Asbestos was used in textile products, automotive parts, home and commercial buildings, naval ships, fire insulation, home improvement products, pipe insulation and more. Once disturbed asbestos fibers become airborne and are inhaled or ingested. Also, often asbestos fibers are caught on and carried home on a worker’s clothing. There is no “safe” level of exposure to asbestos. Even minimal levels of asbestos can cause lung lining cancer and other cancers.
Asbestos exposure, and resulting mesothelioma, is unfortunately common in certain trades and manual labor jobs such as pipe fitters, insulators, auto mechanics, boiler makers, drywall/plasterers, construction workers, factory workers, mining, navy veterans, refinery workers, and shipyard workers.
