Abstract :

Asbestos poisoningcan cause a relatively rare cancer called mesothelioma. The disease can be caused by
exposure to asbestos directly or indirectly, and claims can sometimes exceed tens of millions of dollars

Blue asbestos are found more likely to causemesotheliomathan chrysotileasbestos fibersfor long and thin blue
asbestos. However, the smallest particles of asbestos can be more dangerous than the fact that the larger the
smaller particles can remain airborne for a long time.

Asbestoscan cause other diseases such as mesothelioma, including lung cancer and kidney, and other
pulmonary diseases. Asbestos has been recognized as a health risk from about 1900, but asbestos and
mesothelioma has only officially linked since 1960. Those who live near the natural asbestos and other natural
minerals such as found to have an increased risk of mesothelioma.

Some people only briefly exposed to small amounts of asbestos develop mesothelioma, and others are a large
number of asbestos for a long time, no. One study showed that the incidence of mesothelioma 300 times more
workers with asbestos insulation, compared with the total population. Asbestos can cause changes to DNA in
cells, or even increase the likelihood that you will get the alien DNA in cells. Asbestos can also reduce the
effectiveness of the immune system.
Mesothelioma caused byasbestos poisoningrare. The incidence of mesothelioma is highest in the UK,
Australia and Belgium, but even in those countries (which has about twice the frequency compared with the
United States, where about 2,000 new cases diagnosed each year), the incident is still one-thirtieth of lung
cancer lungs. These figures would not be appropriate, because diseases such as mesothelioma is often
