diseases are the result of inhalation of hazardous substances.
Any worker exposed to harmful substances should take out a

Mesothelioma: Malignant mesothelioma
normally leads to death within two years of detection of the
disease. In most cases the condition is detected only after
the tumor has spread over a large area of the pleura, there
is no effective treatment. If the tumor is still small, when
discovered, it can be surgically removed for a complete cure,
but such cases are rare.
Asbestosis: None of the asbestos related
diseases, including asbestosis, can be reversed. Wide-spread
scarring in the lung tissues, from inhalation of asbestos
particles, can cause breathlessness and discomfort in the
people who are affected. Severe cases can lead to death.
Diffuse Pleural Thickening: This condition
significantly reduces the ability of the lungs to efficiently
deliver oxygen to the blood, and can lead to lung cancer.
People with asbestos related lung disease are very susceptible
to getting primary lung cancer. About 4 out of every 10 people
with asbestosis or diffuse pleural thickening will eventually
die of lung cancer.
Byssinosis: This disease is becoming less
common in the developed countries, with the decline of the
textile industry, but is common in cotton producing countries,
It is rarely a life threatening condition, despite the extreme
discomfort caused by shortness of breath. In extreme conditions
respiratory failure may be caused.
Pneumconiosis: In severe cases pneumacontiosis
may lead to heart failure resulting from lung damage. In a
variant of this condition, it may develop into a condition
known as progressive massive fibrosis - the damage affecting
the upper parts of the lungs. Complications that may further
ensue are emphysema and lung cancer. Anyone in an advanced
stage of the disease is at increased risk of premature death.
