A dangerous cancer of the serous membranes, caused by asbestos is one of the concerns in our area today. I have learned that the serous membranes are the thin moist transparent membrane that lines the body cavities and surrounds the internal organs. They act as lubricants that gives easy movement of the organs of the body. If you know someone who are exposed to asbestos, you can help them by the information you can find at in your health centers. Aside from the free information about the disease, you can also find information about lawsuits on the disease.
