Deadly Diseases from Asbestos Fibers Asbestos fibers are responsible for several deadly diseases like lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis and pleural plaques. Several studies have shown that inhalation or ingestion of fibrous substance can damage the lungs and can lead to the development of cancer over time. When some irritating substance inhaled by an organism, the mucus produced in the human body that surrounds the irritant and is also expelled from the body by coughing. Another way to rid the human body as irritants is called phagocytosis, and it occurs in the human immune system. Fibers remain in the body The fibers that remain in the body in the lungs and cause scarring in their tissues. Irritants can lead to complications much deeper for an extended period of time in the development of serious diseases like lung cancer. These fibers eventually reach the inner lining of human lungs begin irritate and cause damage to cells in the surrounding areas. These fibers are surrounded by calcium deposits forming pleural plaques. This condition becomes progressively worse and eventually develops into mesothelioma. When asbestos fibers are swallowed, mesothelioma begins to develop in the abdominal wall. Inhalation of asbestos fibers Many doctors now believe that cancer mesothelioma occurs due to constant inhalation of harmful substances in the fibers in the lungs. In almost all cases, the mesothelioma cancer has occurred in the workers were exposed to abnormally high levels of asbestos at work. On the other hand, asbestosis, asbestos fibers is not a disease and cancer develops gradually over a period of ten to thirty years. When the fibrous material that is trapped in the lungs, the body produces acid to the eradication of these fibers. The internal tissues of the lungs can cause scarring in the Continuous production of an acid and can reach a stage where they can not function properly. This can cause serious respiratory problems. Different types of asbestos fibers 1. Amphiboles 2. Coils Amphiboles are needle-like shape and can not break down easily in the human body and remains there for years. Asbestos fibers are coil-shaped corkscrew and the inside of our body breaks down easily, but can cause severe irritation. Asbestos is used in industries and construction since the mid-1800s and was largely responsible for many dangerous diseases. Its effects are not visible for decades, and many victims of diseases associated with asbestos fibers in the seventies. All those who work in asbestos mines, mills, shipyards and construction at high risk of diseases related to harmful material. Protecting the legal rights Although the use of asbestos has reduced to a large extent in the last ten years, is still used to make fire safety products. All those who are rehabilitating old buildings, or working in buildings that contain this harmful substance is in danger. If you have suffered an illness because of asbestos, you may contact a competent attorney to discuss legal rights. Professional legal advise and assist you in the event. Claims: contact a lawyer A lawyer can help you get compensation for any real health problems like mesothelioma and asbestos become something of you.
