Asbestos exposure believed to cause incurable cancers

Mesothelioma is an incurable cancer in the tissues of the lungs and other organs. A diagnosis of mesothelioma means one's family will probably be preparing for the worst. The patient faces the possibility of multiple surgeries, radiation and chemo treatments along with their respective side effects. Mesothelioma and some other cancers are known to result from asbestos exposure, and the state of Ohio is among those that have more than their fair share of suffering.

Food and Drug Administration concerned over study bias

People in Ohio and across the country have been indoctrinated to read labels. They are told that labels on everything from cereal to cigarettes contain important information to help them make educated choices.

Cell phones are so common that they almost seem like they are part of the human hand. People in Ohio are seldom without them, checking them first thing in the morning and keeping them close by the bed at night.

Recently, however, startling reports may have cell phone users rethinking the proximity in which they keep their devices, and others may be considering filing product liability claims.

Nevertheless, the toxic materials remain in many older buildings in Ohio and across the country. Some parents may be shocked to learn that hundreds of thousands of those buildings are schools.
