Gallbladder Cancer and Asbestos Exposure #infographic

Upon hearing the word “asbestos”, the majority of people will most likely think of mesothelioma and lung disease. While the association is correct, very few are aware that exposure to this carcinogenic mineral can actually result in plenty of other debilitating health problems, such as gallbladder cancer.

Having a relatively low incidence among the U.S. population, the disease occurs in roughly 11,700 Americans every year. Nonetheless, gallbladder cancer is often fatal, with only 7% of patients achieving a 5-years survival following diagnosis.

Those who held down a job involving asbestos before the 1980s, when employees were rarely provided with adequate equipment to minimize exposure, are considerably prone to developing it. A noteworthy aspect concerning the diseases which may ensue as a consequence of asbestos exposure refers to latency. It is crucial to know that, if you have a history of asbestos exposure, the risk of experiencing health issues remains throughout your lifetime, as a disease can arise even 40 years later.

Do you suspect your diagnosis is related to workplace asbestos exposure? The attorneys and legal experts at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. will gladly help you recover financial compensation from the liable company.

Acne Pills Treatment: Antibiotics, Retinoids, & Vitamins #infographic

Acne is a widespread problem among teenagers that can also affect adults. Thus, many look for treatments that can help them get rid of these unflattering pimples. Nowadays, there are many remedies, but not all of them have the same effectiveness nor cause the same reaction in every individual.

Depending on the severity of the acne there are more and less aggressive treatments. For example, for the worst cases, there are antibiotics available, as well as isotretinoin pills. However, their main disadvantage is their multiple side effects. For milder cases or as a last resort, birth control pills or vitamins can do the job, but may take more time to show results.

This infographic by Acne Supplements Critic will clear all your doubts and help you decide which treatment sounds better for you. Nonetheless, you should always bear in mind that acne is produced by hormones, and there are not two cases alike. Therefore, you should always seek the counsel of your dermatologist.
