Cancer May Replace Heart Disease as #1 Killer

Heart disease has been the number one killer of people, both in the United States and worldwide; however, this may not be the case for very much longer. According to the World Health Organization, cancer has become an ever-increasing cause of death worldwide. The organization projects the total number of people diagnosed with cancer in 2008 to reach an all time high of 12 million, with 7 million deaths. While smoking seems to be the prominent cause of this increase, the number of cases involving asbestos exposure are shocking as well.

While the United States has had a heavy decrease in smokers, Americans face cancers caused by materials found in our everyday products and in our homes. Asbestos is a serious problem if not recognized and dealt with properly. Fortunately, America has advanced screening methods to detect cancer, giving American citizens a better chance to fight a diagnosis of cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer recently released information that suggested that "the global cancer burden doubled in the last thirty years of the
twentieth century, and it is estimated that this will double again
between 2000 and 2020, and nearly triple by 2030."

Being knowledgeable about dangerous asbestos sites and products helps people avoid high level exposure to the deadly material, however, some people have been exposed to asbestos as a result of someone else's negligence. If you've been wrongfully exposed to asbestos, contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Kherkher at 800-220-9341 today.
