Mesothelioma cancer, the asbestos-driven silent killer

Mesothelioma Cancer – The Mesothelioma Center

Mesothelioma is a malignant tumor caused by inhaled asbestos fibers. It usually affects the lining of the lungs, however mesothelioma tumors can also form on the linings of the abdomen, heart, and testes.

Pleural mesothelioma is the most common form, accounting for 75% of all cases. It affects the lining of the lungs, and symptoms can include shortness of breath, chest pain, dry coughing and more. The second more common type is peritoneal mesothelioma, which forms in the lining of the abdomen. Although less common, other forms of mesothelioma include pericardial (heart), and testicular mesothelioma.

Asbestos exposure is the leading cause of mesothelioma. Asbestos is a group of six naturally occurring minerals composed of soft, flexible fibers. It was previously used in many consumer products due to its heat resistance.

Those at high risk of developing mesothelioma are blue-collar workers, veterans, and family members of those regularly exposed to asbestos fibers. Firefighters, construction workers, power plant workers, shipyard workers, and others are at high risk of occupational asbestos exposure. U.S. Navy veterans also face health risks due to the abundance of products that were used in many of the military products before the 1980’s.

Due to its long latency period, about 20-50 years, most patients are diagnosed in their late 60’s. Men also account for a majority of mesothelioma diagnoses.

Interventions for Mesothelioma can involve   clinical trials,   conventional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, surgery as well as alternative therapies.

It is a silent killer with most cases generally ignorant. Are you exposed to asbestos regularly ? Then this may interest you

NASA says Earth will be plunged into darkness for 15 days in November? Well.

In case you haven’t heard, the world will be plunged into darkness for 15 days in November, all thanks to rare phenomenon caused by the movement of Venus and Jupiter.

But before you start worrying about what this once-in-a-million event will do to your light bill, just know this: it’s not true.

Many  have reported the Earth will experience 15 days of total darkness between Nov. 15-29. The world, the reports said, will stay dark from Nov. 15 at 3 a.m. (no word if this is Central, Standard or any other time) and will end Nov. 30, 4:45 p.m. The article, which contains official-looking maps, charts and other documents, said President Obama has received a 1,000 page document about the coming phenomenon from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden.

The reason for the blackout, the sites claim, is what’s described as “close parallelism” between Venus and Jupiter that will cause Venus to shine brighter with that light heating up Jupiter. This reaction will release hydrogen in to the atmosphere, causing a massive explosion on the sun. The sun will react to the outburst by attempting to cool itself down and will turn blue as a result.

Next thing you know, we will all be in the dark for two weeks.

The stories go on to say Bolden doesn’t think the Earth will experience any major issues during the blackout.

“This event will be similar to what Alaskans experience in the winter,” Bolden supposedly said. “The only other effect it will have it everyone will get to have a true Black Friday after Thanksgiving.”

There’s even a hashtag – #NovemberBlackOut – where people can discuss what they are going to do during the days of darkness.

The whole thing is bunk, of course.

The blackout rumors first surfaced in 2012 and were connected to interest in the Mayan calendar.

“Neither NASA nor any other scientific organization is predicting such a blackout,” he said. “The false reports on this issue claim that some sort of “alignment of the Universe” will cause a blackout. There is no such alignment.”

The rumor surfaced again earlier this year.

This time Snopes, the website that reports on the validity of rumors and urban legends, weighed in.

“No, the universe is not about to realign in June 2015, nor will there be a multi-day blackout at that time during which the Earth will shift into a new dimension. Neither NASA nor any other credible scientific entity has made such a pronouncement. Ever,” the website said.

Whew. Let the sunshine in.
