mesothelioma Archives

Mesothelioma one of many dangers associated with asbestos

Even though laws exist nowadays to greatly restrict the use of asbestos, the dangers and potential risks associated with the product remain present throughout South Carolina and the rest of the nation. Certain locations, such as old schools, libraries, factories and other buildings, are high-risk asbestos areas. Then again, there are hazards associated with newer products as well, such as cosmetics and many children's toys on the market today. The greatest danger known to be related to asbestos exposure is mesothelioma, an incurable cancer.

Widow of mesothelioma victim says asbestos joke is not funny

In South Carolina and across the country, cancer has sadly taken its toll on many families. A particular advertisement for Snickers candy bars on the back cover of Sports Illustrated, meant to be humorous, has made the widow of a man who died from cancer very angry. That's because the advertisement is a spoof about asbestos exposure. The woman's husband died from mesothelioma, an incurable disease caused solely by exposure to asbestos.

Mesothelioma: A slow-developing disease that may be work-related

Many readers in South Carolina know what it's like to feel a bit off in relation to their overall health conditions, but unable to place their fingers on the exact causes of their problems. Some suspect their feelings of fatigue, nagging coughs or chest pains have something to do with their working environments. In fact, many people currently suffer from mesothelioma or other respiratory illnesses and cancers that are direct results of having been exposed to asbestos on the job.

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.

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.
