JusticeNewsFlash Mesothelioma News — Dedicated West Palm Beach mesothelioma lawyer reveals a common myth regarding known asbestos fibers present in our environment. Shipyard workers, pipe fitters, asbestos workers, electricians, plumbers, and construction workers are not the only citizens exposed to asbestos products. Asbestos fibers are an ever-present pollutant in the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink. Take into account every time an automobile or train applies its brakes; thousands of asbestos fibers, from the brake linings, are released into the atmosphere. With every change in weather, erosion of asbestos products and mining sites pollutes our daily environment. As a result of this activity, it is estimated that the typical American breathes in, unwittingly, about one million asbestos fibers a year. Some estimate large amounts of asbestos are present in 20% of all public and commercial buildings in the United States.
While interviewing experienced mesothelioma lung cancer attorney, Gary Roberts, the following key facts about secondary exposure to asbestos were outlined.
* Asbestos polluted air is inhaled or swallowed.
* Once asbestos enters the body it remains forever
* Asbestos particles become trapped in the mucous linings of the nose and throat
* Tiny asbestos fibers move deep into the mucous linings and epithelial cells of the body creating increased risk of mesothelioma cancer.
* Asbestos contaminated fibers eventually transfer to other vital organs further increasing the risk for many types of mesothelioma and lung cancer.
Devoted mesothelioma lung cancer lawyer, with the law firm of Gary Roberts and Associates, states mesothelioma doctors and researchers are struggling to find drugs and treatments for mesothelioma cell types. These cell types are caused by primary and secondary exposure to asbestos products. Daily exposure to asbestos pollutants can cause mesothelioma lung cancer, malignant mesothelioma, abdominal mesothelioma, asbestosis and a long list of other mesothelioma symptoms and diseases.
If you or a loved one has come in direct contact, with asbestos products and fibers or had secondary exposure to asbestos polluted air, seek out a mesothelioma treatment center or doctor for a mesothelioma screening. Contacting an attorney knowledgeable in asbestos legislation, litigation and mesothelioma claims may provide you and your family with needed compensation for pain and suffering from your injuries.
