Mesothelioma is primarily caused by exposure to asbestos and cigarette smoking also plays a factor. Asbestos is a carcinogen mineral. Once inhaled asbestos absorbs in to the body's respiratory and digestive system. Asbestos, the mineral invades the body's protective covering of the lungs, heart and abdomen. The mesothelium cells or the protective lining thus become susceptible to cancer as a result of the accumulation of the very tiny microscopic minerals of carcinogen known as asbestos become lodged in the lining of the mesothelium cells and begin to prevent lubrication along these linings that enable the heart and lungs to move. When the cells of the mesothelium die off the lungs and heart are unable to breathe air and pump blood which results in death. Mesothelioma is not known as a lentivirus. A lentivirus is a virus that causes a slow progression of disease that leads to death. Oncogenes are genes that when mutated they make an otherwise normal cell into a tumor cell. Since it can take between 20 to 50 years for mesothelioma to develop aggressively mesothelioma needs to be included at least in a particular subset of cancer categories that are considered lentiviruses because of the time it takes for them to develop in harmful or fatal viruses. This means that one can have a disease such as mesothelioma for years and not be aware of it until it becomes advanced. As a result lentiviruses go undetected because a person may not become ill until many years after being exposed or infected. Yes, there is a blood test for this called SMRP or soluble mesothelin- related peptides to test for mesothelioma in the body. Especially, if a person is wondering do they work or live in a building or office where the owner was a real cheapy and used asbestos to rehab, renovate or put the place together in a no frills way, just so that they could save a wad of money knowing it will be many years before you find out about it. Kind of comforting- imagine a place with workers who barely have green cards just working, renovating and building away for next to nothing and then people who want to lease, buy or rent go looking for that one place at just the right price. Low and behold they find it unknowing that in several years time mesothelioma has decided to stay in their body without contributing to the rent or mortgage; but then it says it did by going unnoticed for ten or twenty years. So now we need to discuss prevention and a remedy for if mesothelioma exists.
Just as taking ginseng, turmeric, tulsi and kachnaar guggul may help in keeping your body healthy in preventing cancers from developing; even if it is found that cancer is present in the future pellets of such herbal supplements may be found to assist by being injected into the tumor if the tumor is in operable. This effort may shrink the tumor(s) and eventually kill them off and by continuing to take the supplements one can be cancer or mesothelioma free.
Strange but it reminds me of work. You go in and then several years later you got all these problems because you have no pension and during the whole time nobody including the higher up's don't say a thing about it. People design things so cheap nowadays and gosh I sure do hope that they are not telling folk why pay for something you'll never need or use. That's ok, what comes around...goes around!
