Asbestos — The Cause Of Mesothelioma

Asbestos is a flame-resistant, fibrous material that was commonly made into insulation, as well as other products, during the early half of the last century. Despite the fact that asbestos was linked to health problems as early as the 1920s, few employers bothered to adequately protect their employees from the dangerous effects of the material until as late as 1970. By the 1970s there were more than 3,000 consumer products containing asbestos in the United States.

Asbestos exposure can occur as the result of a wide range of at-risk professions, including:

  • Pipe fitter
  • Plumber
  • Drywall worker
  • Power company employees
  • Construction worker or floor tiler
  • Electrician
  • Auto mechanic
  • Serving in the Air Force or Navy
  • Firefighter
  • Roofer
  • Insulator
  • Factory worker
  • Maintenance worker
  • Pulp and paper mill worker
  • Chemical plant worker

In addition to job-related incidents, you also can become exposed while performing home improvements. Exposure to asbestos can result in mesothelioma, asbestosis or other asbestos-related diseases.
