Causes of MesotheliomaAll the possible causes of Mesothelioma have been placed under intense scrutiny and studied by scientists for the past several decades now. These studies estimate that in almost all cases (9 out of 10), Mesothelioma could be attributed to asbestos exposure.
Since its discovery by the ancient Greeks, asbestos has been observed to cause a variety of respiratory illnesses. Before the ban on asbestos, this mineral was discovered to have a lot of practical uses, mainly in construction, brake pad linings for automobiles and was even integrated and weaved into cloth by the ancient Greeks to make it look whiter.
Aside from asbestos exposure, the other possible causes of Mesothelioma that are yet to be proven; point out to the genetic mutation of cells which have several factors that could possibly contribute to the development of the disease such as an individual’s living conditions or environment, the overall state of health and lifestyle choices such as smoking.
There are also theories that suggest that an individual’s exposure to asbestos could probably initiate genetic mutation. This theory, however, remains to be proven. In further studies conducted on animals, the SV40 or the Simian Virus was identified to be another cause of Mesothelioma.
This research was initiated when it was discovered that a number of polio vaccines that were circulated in the mid-’50s to the early ’60s were contaminated with SV40. Even so, the absolute connection between Mesothelioma and SV40 was never established.
