Asbestos and lungs cancer

Wow!!! It’s Monday again, and in no time at all, we will welcome half year of 2009!!! How time flies really fast, huh?? I felt like January was only yesterday, and in a blink of an eye, we are in the month of May going to month of June. *sigh*
3 more weeks from now, I’ll be celebrating my 11th Anniversary with Hubby and this time, I totally have no idea what to give hubby. Probably present won’t be necessary kan?? After all we have been together for 11 years and have been receiving so many stuffs from each other for Birthday, Valentine, Xmas and many other occasions. I’m thinking to go somewhere for a romantic dinner with hubby alone and book a romantic room where only the two of us will be there. But..but..the thought of leaving my kids under the care of MIL, while me and hubby are having our time make me feel sooooooo guilty. How could I leave my kids like that??? *sigh*
Ok..ok!! I still have plenty of time before my anniversary on 14th of June. So I’ll come back to this by next week. Heheheee Do I have to buy any cake? Presents? Well..see lah what’s my decision nanti.
What I want to tell you right now, at this moment is about how hazardous asbestos to our health. In case you don’t know about asbestos, it’s a material used in our daily life. It is used for the purpose of insulation in our house, fireproofing, car brakes, cements, floor tiles and also pipe covering. Sounds like it’s just a normal product we used daily, huh?? But do you know that asbestos could cause a serious lung condition like Mesothelioma, lung cancer and Asbestosis?? Yeah, it’s very scary. In case you don’t know about Mesothelioma and asbestosis :
@ Mesothelioma ~ It’s a cancer on chest lining and abdomen
@ Asbestosis ~ A condition where the lungs become scarred with fibrous tissue making it difficult to breath.
When I read about these lungs conditions, I got really scared as many of the asbestos products could be easily found in our house. It is dangerous as its fibres are 50 to 200 times thinner than a human air, thus the fibers can float in the air for extended periods of times and can be easily breathed into the lungs. Each year in the US, thousands of individuals suffer from Mesothelioma which is fatal but preventable. However, it is extremely difficult to detect this condition in the early stages and when the victims finally diagnosed; they have less than a year to live. Dangsss!!! Aren’t you scared to know about this too???
Each day, we hear much stuff from our food, to our shampoo, make-up, lotion and many that could cause cancer. I’m not sure what else we can consume or product to use that has no potential danger to us. Do we have to live everything in organic these days? Yeah..wall, shampoo or tiles made from organic stuffs and have no danger to us at all. Hah! How’s that sound to you?? I’m not sure. But what I know, I will need to be extra careful with the stuffs I put in my house. If possible, there will be no more asbestos material which could endanger my whole family. How about you? Will you do the same too???
*If you have family or loved ones diagnosed with Mesothelioma, you can get the Mesothelioma Lawyer to fight for your right to get the financial compensation you deserve.
