Mesothelioma Center According to the Mesothelioma Center in the US, Australia has one of the highest incidences of mesothelioma in the world, largely due to its extensive use and mining of asbestos. Deaths from mesothelioma were reported at 416 in 1997 and 522 in 2005 within Australia. Government experts believe that because mesothelioma has such a long latency period - often 20 to 50 years, incidence of the disease in Australia will not peak until after 2010, perhaps as late as 2017. In total, about 18,000 cases are expected by the year 2020, according to a University of Sydney study.
With more than 3,000 pages of content, the Center's site [ style="text-decoration: none"] features information on asbestos, mesothelioma, and other cancers that are caused by asbestos exposure (lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, etc.). Unlike other sites, has achieved HON code approval (Health On the Net (HON) Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation that works to preserve the accuracy and trustworthiness of Web-based medical information). The Center has employed a full staff of writers dedicated to research and writing about asbestos exposure and the diseases that result from exposure to the toxic mineral. In addition, the Mesothelioma Center's medical adviser and editor, Dr. Mauricio Salazar,M.D., who has worked in the field of cancer treatment for years, has personally reviewed, edited, and approved all medical information on the web site.
