Mesothelioma Treatments
Firefighters have an increased risk of developing mesothelioma due to exposure to asbestos in older structures on fire as well as carrying asbestos on their clothes.
Given the increased risk of asbestos exposure faced by firefighters, it is important for firefighters to stay on their toes about potential exposure scenarios. The first step firefighters should take to protect themselves is to educate themselves about asbestos. Mesothelioma Guide is a guide and resource for mesothelioma patients and it features extensive information for those in need that have been exposed to asbestos.
