Mesothelioma Treatment Centers in South Dakota

South Dakota Mesothelioma Treatment CentersBecause of its low population density, South Dakota has a relatively low rate of fatalities from asbestos related diseases. However, between 1980 and 2000, 63 residents of South Dakota lost their lives to asbestos disease. Most of these courageous men and women lost a tough fight against mesothelioma cancer. While this rate is comparatively low, it is still 63 more people than should ever die from this avoidable disease. Asbestos, though prized for its industrial attributes, has long been identified as hazardous carcinogen. Unfortunately, many industries have chosen profit over the lives of their loyal workers, allowing asbestos use to threaten their well being and the health of their families.

The Asbestos Threat

Asbestos, which can be found in numerous products—including safety gear, building materials, electrical wiring, insulation, and more—becomes a health threat when it is somehow compromised and the asbestos fibers become friable (or crushable). At this point, people who come in contact with these tiny invisible particles can inhale or ingest them. Asbestos infiltrates the body and can cause major damage including the tearing and scarring of lung tissue (a potentially fatal disease called asbestosis) or malignant mutation of the tissues lining the lungs, heart, and abdominal organs, a cancer called mesothelioma. These serious diseases can take years or even decades to develop after being exposed to asbestos.
