Mesothelioma: Prevention Saves Lives

    Suppose a person is walking through the woods, and knows rabid bears are near a  brook, the wise move is to avoid the brook and the mauling, and try to seek medical attention in the woods. Mesothelioma is an aggressive, deadly illness that is best avoided entirely, and preventative measures are already saving lives. This article explores the cause of mesothelioma, it's prognosis, ways of preventing exposure, and countries that have enforced bans, both partial and complete.
    
    The main cause of mesothelioma is well-known and uncontroversial, but many people still face a grim prognosis. The primary cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos fibers that get taken into the body, eventually causing tumors in the lining of organs. In spite of prevention efforts, there were 2600 deaths in the United States alone from this rare cancer in 2007, per the CDC. These deaths are unsurprising, given the grim prognosis mesothelioma carries, with most patients surviving between four and eighteen months after their diagnosis.

    The risks of asbestos have been known for decades, and preventative measures can help in places where bans cannot. Even in areas where asbestos use is banned commercially, there will be old buildings, and when those buildings are renovated or demolished, special care needs to be taken. For workers who are dealing directly with asbestos, they need respirators along with disposable gloves and coveralls to prevent the fibers from getting in their lungs or following them home on their clothing. Work sites with asbestos require extreme caution, and workers finding asbestos need to seal it away in disposable garbage bags for proper disposal at another site in order to keep their work site safe.

    Given the clear danger of asbestos, many nations have outlawed it's use, or partially banned it, including developing and developed nations. Asbestos has been banned outright in many developed nations, including Australia, Belgium, Greece, Japan, Turkey and the UK, among others. Developing nations have also begun outright bans on asbestos use; including Algeria, Gabon, Mozambique, and South Africa, among others. The United States is an odd case, asbestos was banned in the 1970s, however it's effectively only a partial ban, preventing asbestos use in some products.

    In life, there are many metaphorical bears hiding in the woods, and asbestos is one that can be properly avoided. Given the poor prognosis for mesothelioma patients, prevention is very important for saving lives. This article has provided an overview of how mesothelioma is caused by asbestos exposure, precautions workers can use to prevent exposure, along with a list of nations where asbestos use is banned. With mesothelioma, prevention can save more lives than any mode of treatment.
