Mesothelioma is a fatal type of cancer that is caused through inhalation of asbestos fibers and dust, which slowly develops cancerous cells on the lining of the lungs and chest cavity. Individuals who often worked in mining vermiculite, the main mineral asbestos is derived from, or employees that transported asbestos have been highly affected, however, anyone who is exposed to even the smallest amounts of asbestos fibers are at risk for developing this condition. Asbestos was often used as installation on buildings from universities and elementary schools to hospitals and office buildings.
