Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos fibers. A new study published in Translational Oncology looked at Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA). Data from Italy shows a connection between NOA and mesothelioma biomarkers. Naturally occurring asbestos (NOA) is a material found in rocks and soil. It is caused by natural processes in the Earth. It’s different from the asbestos used in buildings or cars. When rocks or soil with NOA are disturbed by weather or human activities, tiny fibers can be released into the air. If people breathe them in, it can be harmful. Exploring Environmental Health Researchers have been looking into this environmental health puzzle. They wanted to know about the effects of NOA exposure….
