Nanotubes - A new source of Mesothelioma next to Asbestos
Saturday, April 4, 2009
As we discussed earlier, mesothelioma is a rare kind of cancer caused due to the exposure of asbestos. Hence people are taking various steps to put a full stop for this malicious disease. They have taken special effort in removing asbestos from as many homes and other buildings as possible. While this is appreciating, it is worrisome to discover that "Nanotubes or Carbon Nanotubes", an another threat causes mesothelioma. This nanotubes is being used in many forms and applications, specifically in electrical circuitry. Carbon nanotubes are also commonly used in medical applications. When a drug needs to be administered to a very specific location in the human body, these are excellent options due to their incredibly small size. Nanotube fibers are also routinely used in various polymers in order to make their properties more effective and efficient. Asbestos is so inherently harmful and damaging due to its makeup; it is not a certain chemical in asbestos that causes mesothelioma and other diseases, but the shape of its fibers. Carbon nanotubes take on much the same shape and therefore it is worried that they may cause mesothelioma, as well.
