Denver CO (PRWEB) September 18, 2007
LegalView.com, your complete online resource for everything legal, would like to inform readers that they can now find even more complete, accurate information on the deadly cancer mesothelioma at mesothelioma.legalview.com. Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer that is almost always caused by preventable occupational exposure to asbestos, a building material that was extremely common in shipyards, construction and other heavy industry in the decades following World War II. Hundreds of thousands of American workers and service members were exposed to the carcinogen. Because mesothelioma symptoms can remain dormant until decades after exposure, mesothelioma continues to appear in retired workers even today. As a service to victims of mesothelioma, LegalView.com is proud to announce the launch of much larger and more extensive collection of information and resources at the newly reformatted mesothelioma.legalview.com
Since the early 20th century it has been commonly known among the scientific and medical communities that asbestos causes mesothelioma and other serious health problems. According to several U.S. government reports, documents exposed in the 1970s illustrated that the asbestos industry and the federal government knew for decades that asbestos was dangerous, but covered it up, fearing a legal backlash As a result, workers in industries that used asbestos heavily continued to be exposed, in some cases as late as 1990, with some workers still possibly being exposed today. Decades later, these workers are at a drastically increased risk of being diagnosed with mesothelioma. And unfortunately, mesothelioma is almost always deadly; victims have a median survival rate of six months to a year after diagnosis.
