|The Mesothelioma Center is committed to providing the latest, up-to-date information to their visitors
in the hopes of spreading awareness about the dangers of asbestos cancer. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans
Affairs, there are currently 25 million living individuals who have served in the United States' armed forces. Hundreds
of thousands, if not millions of these living veterans were exposed to toxic asbestos-containing materials during
military service which could develop into mesothelioma. Asbestos.com offers complete information on malignant mesothelioma lists
of occupations, ships, and shipyards that could have put our Veterans at risk for developing asbestos-related diseases.
Additionally their Veterans Assistance Department offers extensive experience in filing VA claims and can help any veteran
coping with mesothelioma receive benefits from the VA system.|
Pleural mesothelioma is the most common form of mesothelioma, accounting for roughly 75% of all diagnosed cases.
Pleural mesothelioma is a rare, aggressive cancer that develops in the thin layer of tissue
surrounding the lungs. The disease is caused primarily by the inhalation of microscopic asbestos fibers,
which can become lodged in the lining around the lungs and trigger a chain of physiological reactions
that eventually can lead to cancer.
While other sites are great sources for general Mesothelioma information, we’ve created what we to
believe to be the best Pleural Mesothelioma information source online to help spread awareness.

During the better part of the 20th century, the United States Armed Forces used
asbestos in the production of many types of ships, buildings and vehicles, thus exposing
countless soldiers and workers to this terrible mineral. At its peak, asbestos was used
predominantly in factories during World War II and many U.S. veterans suffered from
mesothelioma as a result, because the harmful effects of asbestos were not known until
decades later. Even now, as asbestos use and production has declined significantly, many
veterans could still be afflicted, unaware of the early symptoms of mesothelioma cancer.
The Mesothelioma Resource Online offers a comprehensive list of American naval
vessels and military ships that were produced using asbestos, as well as a state-by-state
directory of Veterans Affairs center and hospitals to assist service men and women who are
suffering from mesothelioma.
Being diagnosed with mesothelioma is a very difficult, life-changing event.
Understanding the causes, symptoms, diagnosis and available treatments is important for
anyone who believes they may have this asbestos-caused cancer.
Treatments for mesothelioma can vary from patient to patient based on the stage
and type of the disease, as well as the desires of the patient. When you are diagnosed,
you should find a mesothelioma treatment center and work with your doctor to develop a
treatment plan that meets your needs. Visit our Web Site:

The Mesothelioma Lawyer Center was created to help the millions of people who were exposed to asbestos,

service and are now suffering from asbestos related diseases, such as mesothelioma cancer, a devastating
and nearly always fatal disease.
Our website is a comprehensive asbestos disease informational resource. Additionally, we offer mesothelioma
victims and their loved ones the following items, free of charge: a comprehensive Mesothelioma & Asbestos Guide;

1/3 of all mesothelioma patients are veterans, and approximately 6,000
veterans afflicted with this asbestos-caused cancer died between 1999 and 2005 alone. The reason this cancer targets so many veterans
is because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past.
Part of our mission is to spread awareness to veterans and their families. Our website offers free veteran specific
resources and support for patients and families.
