Mesothelioma cases are beginning to show in record numbers in our major retirement states. An asbestos injury hotline has been launched for asbestos inhalation victims and their families. Asbestos diseases have a 20 to 50 year latency period, meaning that a substantial portion of individuals exposed in the 1960s and 1970s are just now showing up as disease or mortality statistics. The mesothelioma death rate was highest in Maine at 27.5 percent (173 total), followed by Wyoming (22.2 percent, 50 deaths), West Virginia (21 percent, 182 deaths), Pennsylvania (20.8 percent, 1,210 deaths), New Jersey (20.2 percent, 814 deaths) and Washington (20.1 percent, 558 deaths).

Mesothelioma Helpline Launched, Asbestos Related Lung Cancer

Written by Auto Accident. Posted in mesothelioma

It is expected thousands of mesothelioma cases will begin to surface in the next few years. Mesothelioma takes many years for the symptoms to show. many od our seniors will be showing signs of this fatal diease just when they are hoping to enjoy their retirement years. The Mesothelioma Helpline has been launched to help seniors and theor families who are victims of this deadly disease.
How Do You Get Mesothelioma?

Many of our seniors who have  developed mesothelioma symptoms in their senoir years previously worked on jobs where they were exposed to asbestos dust and fibers without protection. Secondary exposure, or indirect exposure is less common than primary exposure, but there have been many documented cases of the family members of asbestos workers who developed the terrible disease from fibers which were carried on the clothes of the worker. Additionally, one should always be careful when working on home or building restoration projects, as older buildings and houses frequently used asbestos for insulation and in other products. In fact, before the dangers of asbestos were known, asbestos were mined and used in countless products, including brake pads, gaskets, electric ovens and hotplate wiring, and even in cement to increase its strength.

When the small asbestos particles are disturbed and released into the air they can remain airborne for extended periods of time. When inhaled these particles become lodged in a persons lungs (or possibly swallowed and end up in the digestive system and inflame the lining of the abdomen). The lungs then become inflamed, leading to chronic infection and mesothelioma.

There are three basic types of asbestos: blue, white, and brown. White asbestos, or chrysotile, is mined from serpentine rocks. Chrysotile asbestos is most commonly used industrially, and is flexible enough to be woven into fabric. As a matter of fact, it is rumored that chrysotile asbestos were woven into Charlemagnes tablecloth, which he reportedly threw into his fire after meals in order to clean the cloth. While white asbestos are harmful, there is evidence that it is the least harmful form of asbestos. Brown asbestos, or amosite, is highly biohazardous and is mined throughout South Africa. Blue asbestos, or crocidolite is an amphibole from Australia and South Africa. It is the most dangerous type of asbestos as it is the most fibrous form of the mineral.

Anyone that worked with asbestos or was involved in the mining of asbestos or production of asbestos products was at risk of exposure and should be visiting their doctor regularly to aid in early detection of the disease. Family members and friends who were indirectly exposed to asbestos particles should also heed caution and routinely visit their physician. As mesothelioma cancer doesnt occur until twenty or thirty years after the initial exposure it makes it hard to diagnose an exact time of exposure. It is estimated that by the year 2015, approximately 3000 people will have been diagnosed with this disease every year.
