Is this Info about mesothelioma correct?

While surfing across I wanted to know what causes mesothelioma in people working outside asbestos factories. While browsing through a blog (http://mesothelioma-fight.blogspot.com) I found out that even people living in houses with asbestos sheets as roofings have a tendency of getting mesothelioma. Is this info. true?

Hi.  You're right. People living in houses with asbestos insulation are at an increased risk of developing asbestos-induced lung cancer and mesothelioma. This can happen particularly when asbestos containing materials are not handled properly during house repairs or remodeling.  Sanding or cutting asbestos can release fibers into the air, causing lung injury and eventually, cancer when inhaled.  But it takes a long time from the exposure to asbestos before someone develops cancer - around 30 - 40 years.

Hey everyone,

So I've been intent on researching mesothelioma and wanted to share with everyone some very helpful website that have been extremely informative for me and my family.  

Below is the list of what i've found:

www.mesothelioma-net.org
www.mesotheliomareportr.org
impmeso.org

All the best to everyone who is dealing with this as well.
