The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "This week we have found a study done by the CDC that clearly shows the relationship between asbestos exposure and mesothelioma. One thing we want to point out to diagnosed victims is that there were such great volumes of people exposed to asbestos that the CDC (Center for Disease Control) nicknamed this time period as a “cancer cluster.” The Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to explain how compensation for a victim who worked in what the CDC calls a cancer cluster can be among the best possible mesothelioma compensation settlements. For more information please call the Mesothelioma Victims Center at 866-714-6466. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
According to the CDC, "In the 1960s, one of the best known cancer clusters emerged, involving many cases of mesothelioma (a rare cancer of the lining of the chest and abdomen). Researchers traced the development of mesothelioma to exposure to asbestos, a fibrous mineral that was used heavily in shipbuilding, and has also been used in manufacturing industrial and consumer products. Working with asbestos is the major risk factor (something that may increase the chance of developing a disease) for mesothelioma." For attribution purposes please refer to the CDC's website related to cancer clusters: http://www.cdc.gov/NCEH/clusters/default.htm
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “Certain types of work groups have a higher incidence of mesothelioma because the workplace contained so much asbestos. These types of workplaces include: shipyards, oil refineries, power plants, most manufacturing and industrial facilities. The peak years for asbestos exposure in these types of facilities was between the 1940s and mid-to-late 1980s. These types of workplace exposure mesothelioma compensation claims can create the best settlements.
“We are extremely passionate advocates about making certain diagnosed victims of mesothelioma get the best possible compensation and equally driven to provide all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, or their family members, with instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys. Our philosophy is that the best mesothelioma compensation settlements are a byproduct of having the best attorneys. We would like to explain to a victim, or their family if they call us at 866-714-6466 how to best handle this situation if a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma and falls into the category of a 'cancer cluster' victim."

According to the US Center for Disease Control, the average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. This year between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is attributable to exposure to asbestos.
High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include: US Navy Veterans, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
