Why Asbestos Exposure is Dangerous to Health

Asbestos is a term used for some naturally occurring minerals that form long thin fibers and fiber bundles on crystallization. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral substance that can be pulled into a fluffy consistency. Asbestos fibers are soft and flexible yet resistant to heat, electricity and chemical corrosion. Pure asbestos is an effective insulator, and it can also be mixed into cloth, paper, cement, plastic and other materials to make them stronger. Asbestos is not a single type of mineral, it refers to a group of silicate minerals that share the same fibrous nature. These qualities once made asbestos [...]

Heath Risk relation of Asbestos Exposure

Lymphohistiocytoid mesothelioma is a rare subtype of asbestos cancer that makes up less than 1 percent of all asbestos-related cancer cases. Tumors are made up of a dense bundle of inflammatory immune cells, including lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell), plasma cells and immobile immune cells called histiocytes. Also called macrophages, histiocytes ingest foreign substances to protect the body from infection. […]

Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma: A deadly Asbestos Disease

Sarcomatoid mesothelioma is a rare but dangerous cancer caused by exposure to asbestos particles suspended in the air. Sarcomatoid cells metastasize faster than other mesothelioma cell types, causing the formation of cancerous tumors in other areas of the body. This makes sarcomatoid the most dangerous cell type, though new treatments are leading to longer life expectancies. Sarcomatoid mesothelioma only accounts for about 10-15 percent of all mesothelioma diagnoses. This type of tumor has also been called sarcomatous, diffuse malignant fibrous and spindled mesothelioma. […]

Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma Caused by Asbestos

Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma is a quite uncommon type of cancer caused due to asbestos exposure. While it is difficult to diagnose Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma, it hardly responds to any type of therapy. This is the most serious of all asbestos-related diseases. The possibility of finding this type of cancer is on the lips and the larynx. However, in certain cases, it may affect the oral cavity as well. Like all other forms of […]

Safe Procedure for Disposing Asbestos

Asbestos disposal refers to the process of getting rid of asbestos or other asbestos containing items in a safe way. Asbestos is natural fibrous mineral. Many corporations used it for building and insulation materials. Asbestos was also used widely in fireproofing, pipe covering, cement, refractory materials, gaskets, floor tiles and joint compounds between 1890 and 1970. Improper removal of these materials can release asbestos fibers into the air of your building, posing a possible health risk to you and other inhabitants. Exposure to asbestos particles is the reason behind many diseases including life-threatening cancer called mesothelioma. Looking at the harmful [...]
