Rescue Workers With Mesothelioma Cancer And Asbestos Claims

9/11 terrorist attacks have in the past decade, Officials say at least 3000 people have been killed. The terrorist attacks not only brought terror, but also brings health damage. Although terrorist attacks have passed ten years, many rescue workers suffering from cancer or other diseases because they have inhaled a large number of dust. While a decade will have passed Sunday since the tragedy, firefighters and volunteers exposed to the carcinogenic dust and debris continue to suffer. the dust contained lead, glass fibers, cement, gypsum, calcium carbonate, titanium, benzene and asbestos can increase the risk of cancer. Asbestos exposure can cause mesothelioma is already confirmed by the researchers. Rescue workers in order to save people who were trapped in the rubble. they breathed in dust containing asbestos and other dangerous chemicals. Asbestos fibers increases the risk of cancer and mesothelioma. Analysts say the dust contained lead, calcium carbonate, cement, gypsum, glass fibers, titanium, benzene and asbestos. Exposure sciences expert Paul Lioy told ABC health the dust was "something we had never seen before." many diseases have shown a clear symptom will take several decades. Such as mesothelioma, asbestos cancer, lung cancer, etc. Mesothelioma, for example, can have a latency period of 30 years. However mesothelioma is often difficult to diagnose for a variety of reasons. it is difficult to diagnose pleural mesothelioma in its early stages because its symptoms often mimic the symptoms of other common illnesses, such as the flu, pneumonia or laryngitis.

Studies have shown that 19% of rescue workers suffering from lung cancer or other cancers, But there is no mesothelioma. That may be because the incubation period of mesothelioma is fifteen years or longer time. These firefighters are 19 percent more likely to develop cancer than firefighters not present at ground zero, a New York Times article reported. Says Dr. David Prezant of the Fire Department of New York City, who conducted the study. Even so, Prezant said he does not know whether it will be compelling enough to convince Congress to alter the law. The study included nearly 10,000 male firefighters and looked only at cancers that developed in the first seven years after the World Trade Center attacks. Because mesothelioma has a latency period measured in decades, the study would not be expected to find a significant increase in mesothelioma rates. The James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, named after a firefighter who helped during the rescue period, was passed in 2010 to offer some health care compensation to firefighters.
