Mesothelioma Is Caused By Asbestos

Asbestos was once called the “magic mineral” due to its low cost, versatility, and heat resistance. It was used in many industrial products, homes, and businesses for much of the 1900s. Now, we know that asbestos is a cancer-causing carcinogen. Asbestos fibers that are inhaled or ingested can embed themselves in the body and eventually cause malignant cell development, leading to mesothelioma.

There is no cure for mesothelioma, and most victims do not show signs and symptoms until decades after they were exposed to mesothelioma. Those most at risk of developing mesothelioma include:

  • Workers who used or manufactured asbestos-related products
  • Family members exposed by workers carrying asbestos fibers home on their clothing
  • Those who live near an asbestos producing or mining facility
  • Those who live in homes containing asbestos
