Plumbers high risk for Mesothelioma

Plumbers (Plumber) is the industrial workers most at risk for the deadly cancer mesothelioma. That's the findings of an insurance industry study recently conducted in the UK.
In a report prepared by the National Claims, finding that the former plumbers or plumbers, and electrical, construction workers and auto mechanics, have a much higher likelihood of cancer associated with asbestos than people who work in other industries. This is a finding supported by CDC researchers in the United States which found the number of deaths from mesothelioma among plumbers and predict these events could continue to rise for 40 years.
Asbestos is an insulating material that is widely used in industry around the world until the 1980's. It is primarily about pipe resistance to temperature extremes and corrosion. Although no longer used in new construction - and even been banned in over 40 countries (though not in the U.S.) - asbestos still exist around the water pipe, the pipe fittings and water heating filament millions of old homes and commercial buildings. Plumbers who do cutting pipes, repairing or replacing pipes, can release toxic fibers that is the origin of the emergence of mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and other diseases.
UK insurance report warns ex-plumbers and plumbers, mesothelioma is a very dangerous disease because it tends to grow slowly, with symptoms that can mimic other conditions, diagnosis of mesothelioma was initially very small possibility of this disease are found to gradually develop in the future day. According to the report "The symptoms of asbestosis often only emerge 15 to 20 years after initial exposure to asbestos. Symptoms begin gradually, and may become more visible for several years. Common symptoms are shortness of breath (initially after physical activity, but eventually he breaks too), coughing, wheezing, and chest pain. "
