Living or Working Close to Natural Sources of Asbestos and Diagnosed with Mesothelioma?
Even though you never worked with asbestos, if you have lived or worked near natural sources of asbestos, you are at risk to develop serious lung diseases that are caused by exposure to this dangerous mineral. Exposure to asbestos is known to cause serious diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer and asbestosis.
Researchers at the University of California, Davis, studied nearly 3,000 cases of people diagnosed with mesothelioma. People living in California as well as other places where asbestos is present in the environment, can develop these diseases even though they or their families had never worked in a job where they were exposed to asbestos.
