Malignant mesothelioma is a form of cancer that develops in the protective lining that covers the lungs and is most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos or erionite (a mineral found in gravel in the western United States and used in road surfacing). In the majority of cases the deadly cancer manifests itself many years after contaminants are breathed into the lungs, but there have been reported cases of children developing the disease. Sometimes family members also develop cancer due to being exposed to fibers brought home on a worker's clothing.
Asbestos was identified as causing illness as long ago as the 1920's. However, corporations and companies continued exposing their employees to this deadly pathogen by continuing to manufacture asbestos until 2002! These employees are now becoming older and mesothelioma is causing severe health problems and death, terminating lives just when men and women are starting to enjoy retirement, families and grandchildren, thus robbing generations of fond memories and good times.
