Asbestos is the genetic damage in cells and trigger cancer. Starting from the results of the examination Nancy accused that the baby powder that was used contained asbestos causing mesothelioma cancer.

Please note, mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer that attacks less than 0.3 percent of the population in the United States.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) considers asbestos as a carcinogen that can cause lung cancer, larynx, mesothelioma and ovaries.

Actually asbestos is a mineral, but its composition is dangerous because it can be separated into microscopic fibers that are not biodegradable.

As a result, these fibers nest in the lungs that have been exposed to asbestos for years. Then, the content will damage healthy cells which ultimately cause cancer.

In fact, Asbestos.com estimates that between 2 and 10 percent of all people exposed to long-term asbestos, develop pleural mesothelioma, a type of cancer that accounts for 75 percent of cases.

Symptoms of this disease such as dry cough, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Usually, these symptoms will appear after someone is exposed for 20 to 50 years, aka when the tumor has developed.

Generally, cancer due to asbestos exposure is very vulnerable to attack factory workers. But in this case, Nancy is not a factory bad guy.

However, he suspects that exposure to the atmosphere in the surrounding environment is not enough to be the cause of mesothelioma cancer. On the other hand, it is also unknown how long Nancy used baby powder.

Even so, Nancy still suspected that her baby's powder also contained asbestos which caused cancer. Even laboratory tests also prove that the baby powder contains asbestos tremolite and anthophyllite.

After 2 years of being diagnosed with mesothelioma cancer, Nancy is now still alive thanks to routine treatment. Though the average patient can survive only 12-22 months after being diagnosed.

In fact, only about 4 percent of mesothelioma cancer patients can survive up to 5 years.
