HOUSTON, July 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mesothelioma.us, a free online mesothelioma resource center that is devoted to providing people with helpful and educational information about the disease, has just released an enormous list of common products that have been found to contain asbestos.
As an article on http://mesothelioma.us/ explained, the most common way to get mesothelioma is by working directly with asbestos. People who worked in mining, construction, shipbuilding, and a variety of other jobs typically have an increased risk to being exposed to the harmful asbestos fibers. In addition, since many homes still contain asbestos-lined insulation, people are still in danger of coming in contact with the fibers.
People who are experiencing troubling symptoms and are working with their physicians to determine if they have mesothelioma may wonder if some of the products they worked with over the years contained asbestos. This inspired the founders of Mesothelioma.us to put together the thorough list of products. People may search the A to Z list by alphabet letter to look for a specific item, or they may click on each letter to bring up a pull down list of products.
For example, acoustical plaster, asphalt and automobile hood liners are just three of the products beginning with A that have historically contained asbestos. Fake snow, fiber cement, finishing cement and floor tiles are in the list of F products, along with over a dozen more. In all, every letter of the alphabet except X is featured on the list.
"Today Mesothelioma is one of the most commonly recognized industrial or workplace diseases, and special programs have been developed to recognize mesothelioma symptoms and to provide support to those who suffer from this disease," noted a spokesperson for Mesothelioma.us. Anybody who wishes to learn more may visit the website; there, they can also sign up for free educational packets about the disease.
Mesothelioma.us is an authoritative website that includes comprehensive resources for mesothelioma patients and their families. The site includes up-to-date information about treatment options, major U.S. cancer centers, clinical trials, veteran's claims and benefit information and mesothelioma lawyers.
