Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 25, 2007
When City Hall in Redlands City, California was flooded last week with gray water backed up from the city's sewage system, the initial concern was e coli bacteria. Another danger, however, was quickly identified by city workers; hazardous levels of asbestos. An asbestos remediation company has been brought in and workers have been relocated as cleanup efforts are delayed due to this dangerous discovery.
Asbestos was widely used in building insulation in the first half of the 20th century. We now know that exposure to asbestos can lead to mesothelioma, a crippling type of lung cancer that attacks the lining of the lung. Unlike most lung cancers, mesothelioma is not caused by smoking, according to the National Cancer Institute; the Institute reports that 80 percent of mesothelioma patients had known asbestos exposure earlier in life. Mesothelioma can kill quickly; on average, doctors give patients six months to a year to live after their diagnosis. With this in mind, LegalView.com continues to provide factual information, news and links to more information for mesothelioma patients and their families through its mesothelioma information internet portal.
