How Does Mesothelioma Develop?

It is widely understood that mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, a mineral that was used heavily in NJ and across the US throughout much of the 1900s. Due to its low cost, resistance to heat, and versatility, asbestos was used in products for homes, buildings, cars, ships, and more.

Those most at risk of developing mesothelioma from asbestos exposure include:

  • Anyone who worked directly with asbestos or asbestos products
  • Those who lived with anyone who worked with those products
  • Anyone living in a home or building containing asbestos

Mesothelioma occurs when the tiny asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested and become embedded inside the body. Over time, asbestos fibers disrupt normal cell replication and cause the formation of cancer cells. There is no cure for mesothelioma. Treatment includes surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.

Newark, NJ Has Been Affected By Mesothelioma

Essex County citizens have been adversely affected by mesothelioma. There were an estimated 349 deaths caused by asbestos-related exposure in this county from 1999 to 2013. The asbestos-related death rate in Essex County is 2.9 deaths per 100,000 people.

The following is a list of identified asbestos exposure sites in Newark:

  • ESSEX COUNTY TECHNOLOGY CENTER
  • KOPPER COKE
  • LIBERTY FUEL OIL
  • NEWARK AIRPORT
  • NEWARK POWERHOUSE

Please do not think that these are the only places where asbestos products are or have been in the past. There are many other exposure sites throughout the city.
