Hey guys, I got a question for everyone: What the hell is mesothelioma? It's sorta a riddle... Though not really. Wiki definition of mesothelioma is some form of cancer. I understand that patients diagnosed with mesothelioma have no cure. And also that mesothelioma risk is almost solely derived from exposure to asbestos. And as far as I know, mesothelioma causes are completely exclusive to asbestos inhalation, radiation, zeolite (whatever that is!)
Apparently, mesothelioma deaths are still on the rise today. But I guess my question is, why is mesothelioma such a highly debated topic? I mean, sure it's terrible and causes a ton of risk and has a 10% 5-year survival rate. But what about any other diseases...?
Anyway. I did not intend to offend anyone who is or knows someone afflicted with mesothelioma, and if that's the case, I shall keep you in my prayers. I especially did not mean to belittle the condition as I recognize its severity. Just wanted to clear that up hah...

And so, coming to Broadway, a booming bass drum and sounds of singing, told of a small Salvation Army unit carrying on amidst Broadway's night shopping crowds. Gatsby , walking towards that group, saw a youg girl, back toward him, just finishing a long, soulful oration ... "
The above passage is taken from the book "Gatsby" written by Ernest Vincent Wright in the late 1930's.
