Causes of Mesothelioma

Working with asbestos is the major risk factor for mesothelioma. It occurs when asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested and become stuck in human tissue, causing inflammation or infection. But what exactly is asbestos? Asbestos is a naturally-occurring fibrous substance that was very popular in the 1900 in a number of different industries. When the public became aware of the hazards associated with the mineral, warnings were issued in the mid-1970s and use of it began to decrease
