Mesthelioma is a health issue that many people who worked around asbestos are now facing.
Because of its ability to resist heat and corrosion, asbestos has been used in many industries. Many builders used asbestos in the construction of homes and other buildings during the fifty years leading up to the 1970s.
Mesothelioma is a lung disease caused by exposure to asbestos. Because of the nature of this disease, it can remain undetected for over a decade before the patient shows any signs of illness. In fact, many are now facing the deadly consequences of asbestos, years after they have been exposed.
