The Belluck & Fox, LLP partner says a recent AboutMesothelioma.net article, ‘13 Relevant Facts about Asbestos Disease,’ provides a ‘quick-and-easy update’ about current medical research on mesothelioma.
New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) January 17, 2013 – New York mesothelioma lawyer Joseph W. Belluck said today that a new article available at the website sponsored by his law firm, Belluck & Fox, LLP, Mesotheliomahelp.org provides readers with a helpful summary of facts about asbestos disease in just a few minutes’ time.
The 600-word article, “13 Relevant Facts about Asbestos Disease in 2013,” reports on a study, “Malignant Mesothelioma: Facts, Myths and Hypotheses,” which was prepared by nine doctors from New York University, the University of Hawaii and other research universities who specialize in treating mesothelioma patients.
The study’s findings were published in the Journal of Cell Physiology, a peer-reviewed scientific journal, and made available this month on the website of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (a part of the National Institutes of Health).
“By taking a few minutes to read this blog article, one can get a quick-and-easy update as to the latest thinking about mesothelioma and other asbestos-exposure diseases,” said Belluck, whose nationally recognized New York law firm represents mesothelioma victims and their families.
Belluck said part of the mission of AboutMesothelioma.net is to present the latest news about mesothelioma, including medical research and advances in treatment, for those who may not ordinarily review medical journals and websites.
“The goal of the blog is to routinely present informative, insightful and helpful postings such as this article, which refers readers to the study if they would like to review it in more depth,” he said.
“We will continue to ensure that AboutMesothelioma.net is current and relevant to the mesothelioma and asbestos-disease community throughout 2013 and beyond.”
Mesothelioma is an aggressive and incurable lung cancer. It is often caused by inhaling asbestos fibers during work in manufacturing, construction or the military. Asbestos is a heat- and fire-resistant material that was commonly used as an insulator in industrial and manufacturing equipment and products.
