Lung Diseases: Mesothelioma, Asbestosis, Silicosis, Pneumconiosis,Byssinosis

Lung diseases like Mesothelioma cancer are very much in the news these days on account of the insidious progress of these diseases. Not only are the lungs of the person exposed direct to toxicity affected; the whole family can contract mesothelioma through inhalation of the asbestos particles which attach themselves to clothing fibres and get a ride home.

Asbestosis, Byssinosis (brown lung disease), Coal Worker’s Pneumconiosis (black lung disease) and Industrial Bronchitis are some of the other leading work-related illnesses, other than mesothelioma cancer, in the USA, UK, and other parts of the developed world. These diseases are the result of inhalation of hazardous substances.

The lungs can be affected by substances present in the air of some workplace environments. Although the lungs can withstand short-term exposure to hazardous substances, exposure over a sustained period is dangerous. Only particles smaller than 0.005 mm in diameter - small enough to reach
the narrowest air passages and alveoli in the lungs, will cause damage. However, because they cannot be expelled from the system, they build up over a length of time. Eventually, they cause thickening and scarring of lung tissue, and may turn into life-threatening conditions.

Mesothelioma: Malignant mesothelioma cancer normally leads to death within two years of detection of the disease. In most cases mesothelioma cancer is detected only after the tumor has spread over a large area of the pleura, so there is no effective treatment. If the tumor is still small, when discovered, it can be surgically removed for a complete cure, but cases of survival after contracting mesothelioma cancer are rare. Individuals must protect themselves by wearing protective work gear, and taking the help of mesothelioma lawyers to enforce worker protection.

Prevention is the only strategy that will bear fruit, with employers taking the responsibility to ensure a safe environment for their work force.

Asbestosis: None of the asbestos related diseases, including asbestosis, can be reversed. Wide-spread scarring in the lung tissues, from inhalation of asbestos particles, can cause breathlessness and discomfort in the people who are affected. Severe cases can lead to death.

Diffuse Pleural Thickening: This condition significantly reduces the ability of the lungs to efficiently deliver oxygen to the blood, and can lead to lung cancer.

People with asbestos related lung disease are very susceptible to getting primary lung cancer. Statistics indicate that about 4 out of every 10 people with asbestosis or diffuse pleural thickening will eventually die of lung cancer.

Byssinosis: This disease is becoming less common in the developed countries, with the decline of the textile industry, but is common in cotton producing countries, like India.

It is rarely a life threatening condition, despite the extreme discomfort caused by shortness of breath. In extreme conditions respiratory failure may be caused.

Pneumconiosis: In severe cases pneumconiosis may lead to heart failure resulting from lung damage. In a variant of this condition, it may develop into a condition known as progressive massive fibrosis - the damage affecting the upper parts of the lungs. Complications that may further ensue are emphysema and lung cancer. Anyone in an advanced stage of the disease is at increased risk of premature death.

Both mesothelioma and asbestosis tend to develop in people who have experienced intense asbestos exposure. Sadly, once contracted, neither asbestosis nor mesothelioma can be reversed. The disease progresses even after direct exposure is discontinued.

Silicosis, is caused by inhalation of silica, affects people who work with sandstone, slate, granite etc. It has been estimated that about 3 million workers in the US have been exposed to silica dust. The acute form of silicosis, tends to develop after a few months of intensive exposure to silica - and it can lead to death in under a year.

There is a simple natural therapy to fight cancer but drug manufacturers' intense lobbying has ensured that North America is kept in the dark about this therapy.
