Asbestos litigation settlement achieved by Colgate-Palmolive

A woman in another state suffered adverse health effects that included mesothelioma, an incurable lung disease. She claimed her condition was caused by asbestos contained in talcum products made by Colgate-Palmolive company. The situation led to asbestos litigation that was recently settled to avoid a trial. There may be South Carolina readers currently facing similar legal challenges.

When mesothelioma is misdiagnosed

Mesothelioma is a serious type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. For those with the disease, an early diagnosis is key to having the best possible results in terms of treatment. However, mesothelioma can be hard to diagnose, especially in the beginning stages of the disease.

In need of support regarding asbestos litigation?

There are many old buildings in South Carolina, including schools, libraries and various factories and housing structures. While such buildings are often quite ornate and beautiful, they also could contain potentially dangerous health hazards. This is because a lot of paint, floor and ceiling tiles, insulation and other products used long ago contain asbestos. Cases of asbestos litigation continue to increase as years go on and people suffer non-curable diseases caused by exposure to asbestos.

The importance of diet following cancer

A healthy diet can help prevent many types of cancer and other diseases. We all know the importance of eating a healthy diet - but for many, it takes a health scare to change eating habits. For others, a health scare doesn't prompt a change in nutritional habits.

Town has plans to overcome asbestos exposure problems

South Carolina contains many old buildings, from libraries to schools, churches and even some homes. A continuing problem that often arises in such structures has to do with risks associated with possible asbestos exposure. A town in another state is facing current issues and has developed a potential plan to resolve the problem.
