Do you what causes Mesothelioma? Mesothelioma is a dreaded disease caused by asbestiform, or more popularly known asbestos. This disease is a slow killer. The disease develops atleast 30 to 40 years after it has been contracted.
Close to 75 to 80% of the Mesothelioma cases state the asbestos exposure as the primary reason for contracting the disease. Do you know what it is to lead a happy life for 50 to 60 years and suddenly find yourself suffering from cancer for some reason that happened 50 years ago? In simple words that is Mesothelioma Cancer.
The asbestos particles inhaled stay in your body for decades together and slowly begin damaging your body and make you realize something is wrong with your health only during the advanced stages of mesothelioma. Unfortunately, in most of such cases, the time period is so long that the person suffering would have even forgotten the happening of such an event of asbestos exposure.
In certain other cases the person might not even know that he was exposed to asbestos. According to Environment Protection Agency there is as such no safe exposure limit for asbestos particles. Prevention is always better; hence one should wear proper shielding before venturing into any asbestos exposure activity.
Out of the many efforts taken by organizations to create awareness about asbestos exposure and the resultant contraction of mesothelioma, the NBS Station in Kansas City came up with a documentary video on the ill effects of mesothelioma and risk of asbestos exposure. The video has been named as “Hidden Hazard Missed by Contractors”. The story is all about the dangers involved in removing an old popcorn ceiling, which is said to have tiny asbestos particles in it and the ill effects of inhaling such asbestos particles.
In recent times the case of second hand exposure to asbestos is on the rise. The households namely wife, children and siblings are highly exposed to the danger of asbestos exposure. Though they are not directly subjected to asbestos exposure, the asbestos particles carried in the clothes of the individual visiting such places poses a serious health hazard.
In short, it is high time to be careful about the disease and the consequent threats in human life.
