FDA approves new mesothelioma treatment

People in Georgia with mesothelioma may be excited to learn that the Food and Drug Administration has approved the first new treatment for the aggressive, rare lung cancer in 15 years. The treatment makes use of a device that creates electric fields. These fields can stop the solid tumors involved in mesothelioma from dividing further. This type of lung cancer can be highly aggressive and is almost always linked with some form of asbestos exposure, usually in the workplace.

Defective Conagra cooking sprays the subject of lawsuits

Georgia residents should know that Pam and other cooking sprays have been linked to certain injury cases, some extending back to mid-2017. Six lawsuits were filed in the Cook County Circuit Court against Conagra, the Chicago-based company that makes these sprays. The victims all allege that the cooking spray exploded and burned them when they placed it near a stove or grill top. One of the plaintiffs was even blinded in one eye.

Mesothelioma risk high even when asbestos exposure stops

There is no complete asbestos ban in the U.S. although many companies have stopped using the mineral and adopted protective gear for their employees. Unfortunately for former asbestos workers in Georgia and the rest of the nation, recent research shows that the risk of developing mesothelioma does not go down once asbestos exposure stops.
