Mesothelioma cancer derives from exposure to certain asbestos fibers that penetrate deep within the layers of the lungs. The body is unable to dispel the fibers, which eventually cause an inflammatory condition in the lungs. This condition is thought to be responsible for the resulting tumor that can form either around the lining of the lungs (pleura), the abdomen (peritoneum) or around the heart (pericardium). The tumor is very difficult to expunge from the body and can destroy these vital organs.

Fine for Asbestos Violations
Arizona State University recently settled an $87,000 fine with the Maricopa County Air Quality Department for asbestos violations that occurred during renovations on their Memorial Union building.
ASU employees were not directly involved in the construction that was the cause of the asbestos violations, but the county Air Quality department explained that ASU failed to fulfill their responsibility to notify the county of renovations that could possibly involve the removal of asbestos.
Well over a century ago, asbestos was seen as an ideal building material, it was an excellent insulator, fireproof, and relatively inexpensive. During the twentieth century, some 30 million tons of asbestos was used in the construction of industrial sites, office buildings, schools, shipyards homes, and everyday items such as ironing boards, dryers, toasters, and low-density insulation products. Beginning at the turn of the 20th century, researchers began to see a correlation between the unusually large numbers of deaths and lung problems in mining towns with high asbestos exposure.
