Scientists find genetic link to mesothelioma

Scientists have found that individuals who carry a mutation in a gene called BAP1 are susceptible to developing two forms of cancer – mesothelioma, and melanoma of the eye. Additionally, when these individuals are exposed to asbestos or similar mineral fibers, their risk of developing mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer of the lining of the chest and abdomen, may be markedly increased.

Excerpt: MONTREAL - Within 24 hours of taking office, the new Parti Quebecois government slammed the door on two controversial industries and dropped a hint about shutting down a third.

Mesothelioma: What Makes a Hot Keyword?

Mesothelioma: What Makes a Hot Keyword? | Asbestos and Mesothelioma World News | Scoop.it
When it comes to hot money-making niches, mesothelioma is a popular example. Find out why. Then find out how to find your own hot keywords.

 

People search Google for information about the condition.


Sites that provide quality information get that traffic.


They can then feature high paying ads on their sites, directing visitors to law firms if they think they might have a case.


The law firms pay good money for those referrals because they know there’s a lot of money to be made in the lawsuits themselves.


It’s a basic case of supply and demand. And this is far from the only niche that can be monetized effectively in this way.
