You have seen the commercial. Seems like its not a death sentence.

Lawyers have made themselves rich as hell off of that game.
A few doctors were in on it too. Every chain smoker who ever looked at asbestos dust for two seconds has mesothelioma - yeah right.

What goes unsaid is that mesothelioma is because of tobacco products that get absorbed onto the asbestos.

It probably has more to do with smoking.

The lawyers are the ones that get most of the money, more than the people who are sick.

Re: Is Doug Who Has Mesothelioma Dead Yet?
Doug Dellinger did pass away in the Spring of 2013. I think the ads have continued to run because he was so effective in communicating the message about mesothelioma cancer.

Several people have said things that show they do not know what they are talking about and only have their "opinions". Don't get me wrong, opinions are great and everybody's got one. But when you spread misinformation you may be hurting those that need to know the facts. Here's a few for you that you can easily check if you do the research:

- Mesothelioma is a very, very rare disease. Asbestosis and asbestos-related lung cancer is more common. Asbestosis can cause problems but may not kill you. The lung cancers may kill you but could be related to other things. Mesothelioma is something you may not be able to recover from and it is only caused by asbestos in some form from some source.

- Because so many asbestos companies lied and didn't protect people, they had to pay a lot of money. The $30 Billion Asbestos Trust is money that is for victims of asbestos disease. In some cases victims can also sue for damages.

- I am told that someone with mesothelioma can expect to get at least $500k but it could be 2-3 times that. However each case is different. The lawyers DO NOT get most of that money, but do collect fees that run 25%-40% of the total. Yes, that seems like a lot, but watch "Erin Brockovich"for reasons why it really may not be.

- There are only about 3,000 cases of mesothelioma diagnosed each year in the US. After being diagnosed, patients are lucky to live 5 years.

It's an awful cancer and the only positive thing is that if you get it there is money to pay for medical expenses, the funeral, and perhaps some to help your family get along for the rest of their lives without you.

Yes, you are correct on all points. Doug did not get it from tobacco. A very moronic, wtfignorant statement. Asbestosis comes from ASBESTOS. GOD HELP US ALL. It is a Death sentence.
