It is well known that mesothelioma, an aggressive and incurable form of lung cancer, is almost always connected to exposure to asbestos. Mesothelioma can develop after even low levels of exposure to asbestos. However there are a number of other types of lung cancer where the connection to asbestos is not as clear cut.

During the the 20th Century, the developing world became increasingly fascinated with an apparently revolutionary material. It was light, strong, flame resistant and an exceptional insulator that could be easily mixed or woven into other materials. Thanks to its adaptability this ancient and naturally occurring fibre became the hallmark of a modern and successful city. But little did we know that one day Asbestos was to become a time bomb that would affect future generations in a way that few could have imagined.
Action Mesothelioma Day is an annual event held on the first Friday in July every year. Mesothelioma is an incurable cancer caused by asbestos exposure and the day is now dedicated to remembering those who have lost their lives to the disease and to support and pay tribute to sufferers and their families. In addition, the day aims to raise awareness of the devastation caused by asbestos exposure which continues to affect so many in the UK and around the world.
