Action Mesothelioma Day is on 6th July- it’s a chance to remember the many people who died of this disease in the UK and also to raise awareness about the dangers of asbestos.
Mesothelioma is an incurable cancer that usually develops in the lining of the lungs (pleural mesothelioma) but can also affect the lining of the abdomen (peritoneal mesothelioma) and the lining of the heart (pericardial mesothelioma). It is caused by exposure to asbestos.
