FOR VETERANS: INFO ON MESOTHELIOMA
If you are a veteran who has been exposed to asbestos in Navy ships, the Mesothelioma Veterans Center may be able to help you. They have a free veterans packet that will explain the top treatments, doctors and VA benefits. Asbestos was used in all U.S. Navy ships manufactured before 1980, and every Sailor or workman who served on these ships was likely exposed to asbestos. Click here to visit their site.
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that develops from the thin layer of tissue that covers many of the internal organs. More than 80% of mesothelioma cases are caused by exposure to asbestos. As of 2013, over 125 million people worldwide have been exposed to asbestos at work. Symptoms do not surface until decades later. Mesothelioma are springing up in the elderly community.
