Asbestos and Mesothelioma

Though most people don’t realize it, asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, one that has been mined and used for thousands of years. Asbestos came into high demand near the end of the 19th century, as manufactured discovered that it had desirable sound absorption qualities, relatively high tensile strength, and that it was resistant to fire, electrical and chemical damage. Throughout most of the 20th century, asbestos was commonly used in building insulation, as well as the insulation of electrical wiring. Near the end of the 20th century, scientists discovered a link between exposure to asbestos and a number of health conditions, including Mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma (also known as “malignant Mesothelioma,” is an incurable and extremely aggressive disease where the victim develops rapidly growing tumors on the pleural lining of the lungs or on the peritoneum—the lining of the abdominal cavity.
