Know more about Asbestos. Maybe you are one of the victim.

Asbestosis. Mesothelioma. Lung Cancer.

These three are the serious problem when one is a victim of Asbestos. What then is Asbestos?

Asbestos is the name given to a number of naturally occurring fibrous silicate minerals that have been mined for their useful properties such as thermal insulation, chemical and thermal stability, and high tensile strength. The three most common types of asbestos are: a) chrysotile, b) amosite and c) crocidolite.

Furthermore, Asbestos Survey reveals that over 70 people a week die in the UK of asbestos related diseases. A quarter of the dead worked in building and maintenance trades.
According to the HSE, very week: 3 plumbers die, 20 tradesmen die and 6 electricians die too. Of course, nobody wants many lives will be totally devastated. And researchers are always trying their very best to come up with the better remedy. Two of the possible solutions are now being discovered:
Pharmaceutical Decontamination and Pharmaceutical Decommissioning.

Learning these two is everyone's task for us to educate ourselves and avoid the risk from this monstrous-killer disease.

That is why, proper awareness and public interaction and vigilance is a must.
