What is mesothelioma? It is a rapacious cancer that attacks
the internal lining of the lungs, abdomen, and heart. More than 30 percent of Americans beset with
mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos during military service.
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, there are currently 25 million living individuals
who have served in the United States' armed forces. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of these living
veterans were exposed to toxic asbestos-containing materials during military service. Asbestos dot com offers
complete information on mesothelioma treatment options, lists of
occupations, ships, and shipyards that could have put our Veterans at risk for developing asbestos-related diseases.
Additionally their Veterans Assistance Department offers extensive experience in filing VA claims and can
help any veteran coping with mesothelioma receive benefits from the VA system.
