Asbestos Rulled Out as Cause of Death

Mrs. Kristina Woodhouse, age 67, died in May from mesothelioma. Oddly enough, she had never been exposed to asbestos. This makes her one of a very small percentage of people that somehow develop mesothelioma without asbestos exposure. The disease in so rare in people that have not been exposed to asbestos that it is almost unheard of.

The coroner for Lockeridge, in the United Kingdom, heard that Mrs. Woodhouse had contracted mesothelioma and so performed an autopsy. Her husband, however, claims that Mrs. Woodhouse was never exposed to asbestos dust. He is a retired school teacher.

Mesothelioma is generally considered to be an industrial disease because asbestos is most commonly found in factories. Mrs. Woodhouse becomes part of 1% of all mesothelioma cases in that she did not develop mesothelioma following inhalation of asbestos dust. 

Mrs. Woodhouse fell ill in August of 2006 and died in May of 2007. Due to a lack of asbestos exposure, her death was ruled a natural death.
