Most people know very little about mesothelioma, a serious cancer that occurs in people exposed to asbestos. I was surprised to find out that most manufacturers were aware of the hazards of asbestos as early as the 1920’s, yet asbestos continued to be used because it saved manufacturers money. Most corporations knew of these hazards. So that’s the bottom line…money was saved at the expense of people’s health! If you would like to know more, Mesothelioma Help has answers to questions plus support and help for those affected by it.
There are between two and three thousand new diagnoses of mesothelioma every year. The sad part is that it could have been prevented!
