Asbestos, mesothelioma and nurses
BBC News has reported that an increasing number of nurses are developing mesothelioma, an asbestos related disease. Asbestos is a dangerous substance that is present in many products. The substance can cause mesothelioma, a form of cancer that affects the lung lining.
In one case, a nurse who used to care for mesothelioma patients, developed mesothelioma from asbestos exposure at three hospitals where she worked. News of the illness was a complete shock to her as she knew that the likelihood of being cured was small.
