Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 23, 2008
LegalView, the most comprehensive resource for everything legal on the Web, recently offered readers updated mesothelioma information through its mesothelioma blog. The story concerns a woman who was allegedly fired for expressing her concerns with asbestos-tainted flooring in her workplace. The woman, Mary Ann Gruzs, worked as a beautician in a York County, Penn., nursing home and claims she was fired in 2006 from her job after pointing out concerns with potential asbestos in the flooring, which may have put her health at risk as well as increase her chances of developing mesothelioma. Individuals who feel they too have been placed at risk with asbestos-tainted workplace environments should contact an experienced mesothelioma law firm to learn more about how to protect their health.
Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer that can remain dormant in the body for years, and, in most instances decades. It is caused when an individual has been exposed to asbestos fibers and asbestos dust. Those who believe they may have been previously exposed to asbestos should consult a medical professional immediately, as mesothelioma is often misdiagnosed and only through early treatment do individuals have a better chance of fighting the illness. Additionally, locating a mesothelioma lawyer may be advisable as well.
Asbestos, derived from the mineral vermiculite, was widely mined and used as insulation in buildings, ships and homes/apartments across the United States. It was considered an ideal insulator for its cheap production costs as well as its resistance to catching fire. However, after years of production and implementation across the country, the symptoms associated with mesothelioma and asbestos began to become apparent. Although its use was banned in the United States, it was not before thousands may have been exposed and continue to be at risk for exposure. It is advisable that individuals affected by this preventable form of cancer speak with a mesothelioma attorney to learn about developing mesothelioma litigation, which may provide them with monetary compensation for the costly bills associated with this disease.
LegalView also offers other information portals ranging from controversial prescription drugs, such as Chantix, Singulair and Digitek, to information on locating a brain injury lawyer to the latest on Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF).
Although lately, the prescription drug scandals have seemingly been on the rise and continue to do so around the country affecting millions of unsuspecting Americans. The Chantix side effects and Singulair risks are a prime example of this. Chantix is a smoking cessation drug that has been reportedly used by millions of Americans until the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently released a Public Health Advisory when hundreds of reports on unusual side effects including depression, moodiness, suicidal thoughts and behaviors, began to flood into FDA offices. Patients of Singulair - a treatment of asthma and allergies - began to report similar side effects ranging from erratic behavior to suicidal thoughts.
The most recent prescription drug recall involved Digitek digoxin. The Digitek brand of digoxin is a heart tablet used to treat heart beat irregularity conditions, however after a manufacturing defect resulted in pills with double the dosage, some patients began to report severe cardiac arrest, and some patients taking the drug may have even died because of the Digitek digoxin side effects.
