Awareness on Mesothelioma

When I was young I always heard about the uses of asbestos in many things. Its use extends to workplaces, dwellings, buildings and many other areas where this so-called miracle mineral was used. I remember seeing it on ceilings because it is known to withstand and diminish heat.

Few years back it was found a major hazard to human health if inhaled and exposure to this can cause lung cancer and mesothelioma. Those who have incurred mesothelioma are those people who worked in industries where their work exposed them to particles of asbestos. I was relieved to know that this mineral miracle was already banned.

The scary thing is that almost anyone associated with exposure of asbestos is at risk, although it takes 15 to 30 years to appear after exposure.
