I am scared of cancer. I don’t know anybody who is not. Who knew 40 or 50 years ago that Asbestos was a cancer causing agent? Asbestos was used in many different industries. It was used in brakes on cars, insulation in schools and on naval ships. It was everywhere. Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. It gets into your lungs and is very destructive. People who have been exposed to asbestos need to make sure they get checked. It can take a long time for the mesothelioma to develop. I hope none of my readers are affected by this disease.
