Navy Veterans at Risk for Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare yet extremely dangerous form of cancer resulting from exposure to asbestos. Typically, people who become victims of this disease were in contact with asbestos fibers at their places of work decades ago, prior to knowledge about the health risks associated with exposure to asbestos. Navy veterans, in particular, were hit hard by mesothelioma due to their particular working conditions.

Exposure Areas

Individuals who served in the US Navy from the 1930’s through the 70’s most likely served an ample amount of time on a ship built with materials containing asbestos. Despite the discovery of asbestos-related health hazards in the late 1930’s, the Navy continued its production of these dangerous ships through the 1970’s.

Anyone who was involved in the construction, repair, or demolition of US Navy watercraft during this time experienced a huge amount of exposure to asbestos. Those who served aboard the vessels when at sea were also constantly breathing in the dangerous fibers. In particular, the sailors who were confined to the engine and boiler rooms of the ship suffered from a copious amount of contact with asbestos.

Although the use of asbestos-containing materials has significantly decreased in the past few decades, some ships do still have these dangerous materials on-board.
