Mesothelioma Cancer- The Cause? Asbestos Exposure

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that covers the internal organs in the body. With about 2000 diagnosed cases each year, it is not one of the most common forms of cancer, however it can be fatal. The primary cause of this cancer is exposure to asbestos. With 80% of cases involving those who have worked with or around asbestos, there is no confusion regarding the connection.

This statistic alone should encourage those working with asbestos to exercise proper safety procedures when dealing with the hazardous material. If you are employed in a position that requires you to work with or alongside asbestos, be sure that you have received the proper training to deal with the material. Short two day courses are offered by ASE Services to educate you on the proper handling and use of asbestos.
