Here are a couple of mesothelioma-related stories making headlines this week:
- Research for Earlier Mesothelioma Detection:In a study being conducted by the Department of Computer Science at San Diego State University and funded by the National Cancer Institute, a group of California researchers are looking into improving mesothelioma diagnosis with blood tests. Those conducting the study believe a different type of evaluation, one that looks for abnormal sugars, may provide a valuable tool for earlier detection.
- Construction Workers and Electricians At High Risk Of Asbestos Exposure: As being reported by Medical News Today (MNT), statistics show that construction workers and electricians are at a higher risk for mesothelioma. This is due to their high likelihood of asbestos exposure, including contact with construction materials and dust that may contain asbestos.
- Labor to Lead Push for Global Ban on Asbestos: With more than one-third of the world’s nations increasing their use of asbestos, industry experts fear a rise in mesothelioma cases and other asbestos related diseases. For this reason, Australia’s Foreign Minister, Kevin Rudd, is leading a movement aimed at pushing for a global ban on asbestos.
