Former Tennessee senator diagnosed with mesothelioma

Former senator Ray Albright of Tennessee was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare respiratory cancer linked to asbestos exposure, an article of News Channel 9 reported on November 16.

Reports revealed that Albright was first exposed to asbestos in 1953 while working in a company that manufactures boiler covers; he was tasked with using a band saw that would release asbestos dust. According to Albright, people could hardly see each other while working due to the thick dust that would envelop the place while sawing—unbeknownst to most of the workers, the dust contained the asbestos. The work lasted for 19 years and 40 years after beginning, Albright was diagnosed with mesothelioma. A doctor has estimated that Albright might live for another six months. Albright had already filed an asbestos claim against his former employer as he believes that his employer that time knew of the hazards of asbestos exposure.
