(PRWEB) November 21, 2014
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is calling attention to a October 19th 2014 news article in Science Daily titled “Asbestos likely more widespread than previously thought” as a wake up call to all US citizens about asbestos exposure. The group considers this to be an extremely well written and informative article about what asbestos is. According to Rodney Metcalf, associate professor of geology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, “These minerals were found where one wouldn't expect or think to look.”
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "What we want diagnosed victims of mesothelioma to understand is that asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that when mined from the earth and transformed into a wide range of applications, becomes toxic. For many decades asbestos was used in oil refinery, power plant, manufacturing facility, or on US Navy ships as a super light fire retardant. It's long been known that exposure to asbestos causes mesothelioma, which is why it is no longer used in the mentioned trades. Unfortunately, countless American workers were unknowingly exposing themselves to high levels of asbestos while performing their job duties.
