10 Things You Should Know about Asbestos

One of the best ways to prevent the development of mesothelioma is to understand the danger associated with asbestos exposure and know whether you were ever put in harm’s way. Unfortunately, well after there was evidence that asbestos was dangerous, use of the material continued. Many were exposed to it through their work or their time in the military. It is for this reason that so many people seek compensation for mesothelioma: their employers knew there was a danger and knowingly exposed employees.

It is important to know your risks and understand the symptoms associated with mesothelioma. If you have been exposed to asbestos, you need to let your doctor know. Symptoms that might otherwise seem innocuous can be signs of a serious problem if you have previous asbestos exposure. Many cases of mesothelioma are not detected until the later stages of the disease, decreasing the likelihood of survival. If you were ever exposed to asbestos, be vigilant about receiving the correct diagnosis when and if symptoms associated with mesothelioma arise.

There is a lot of information about asbestos and mesothelioma and it can feel overwhelming to take it all in. If you are curious about asbestos, here are 10 things you should know:

1.    Asbestos is officially considered a known human carcinogen. It is directly linked to mesothelioma from first and second hand exposure, and may also cause lung cancer and asbestosis.

2.    Anyone is at risk for developing mesothelioma from asbestos exposure, but it is higher for those who worked near the material. It is especially high for those who served in the US Navy during World War II and the Korean Conflict.

3.    Asbestos is still in use today in the United States, though far less than years go.

4.    Approximately 45,000 Americans have died from asbestos related diseases since 1979. The current numbers estimate that 10,000 Americans will die per year for the next several years from asbestos related diseases, including mesothelioma.

5.    Asbestos is still mined in Canada and throughout other countries.

6.    There is no safe amount of asbestos exposure. The body is unable to process or eliminate the fibers once they are inhaled, so they build up and create inflammation and scarring. Most people have at least minimal exposure to naturally occurring asbestos. The risk for developing mesothelioma and other diseases is much higher among those who were exposed on a regular basis.

7.    Asbestos can also increase the likelihood of lung cancer.

8.    Smoking, though not a direct cause of mesothelioma can increase the risk of developing this type of cancer by as much as 80% in those who have had exposure to asbestos.

9.    Asbestos survives on clothing and can be transported from one area to another. This accounts for much of the secondary exposure that led to cancer in those who never worked directly with the material. Many women who laundered asbestos covered clothing and those who worked in administrative positions with the Navy have experienced exposure in this way.

10.    Asbestos accounts for the majority of occupational cancer in the United States.
