Workers that are too exposed to asbestos for long periods of time have greater risk of developing cancer. Studies show that asbestos can cause cancer called Mesothelioma. The tiny fibers of asbestos which are floating in the air can be inhaled and swallowed and as a result, tumors can form in the mesothelium that can turn into deadly cancer.
Asbestos which is used primarily in manufacturing of cements and roofing has already been banned due to many cases of Mesothelioma. If you have been a victim of this ailment or you know someone, contacting a Houston asbestos lawyer can be helpful in filing a case and getting claims for the damage it has brought to your health.
