I’m sorry to hear this news but the famous NFL football player Merlin Olsen has just been added to the list of stars who passed away because of a rare disease named Mesothelioma.
So what is this disease named Mesothelioma which took away Merlin Olsen’s life? Mesothelioma is a form of cancer which is the effect of inhaling a chemical named Asbestos. Unfortunately, Merlin Olsen was already diagnosed with Mesothelioma in June of last year and has undergone 3 chemotheraphies since then to combat it.
I really don’t know how Olsen inhaled some of these Asbestos but accordingly, he filed a recent lawsuit against NBC Studios, NBC Universal, and 20th Century Fox for exposing him to Asbestos in January of this year. I guess this sad news should be a warning sign to these companies to take a closer look on the safety of their studios.
Merlin Olsen will surely be remembered not only as a great football player but also one of the best actors. He will definitely be missed. RIP Merlin Olsen.
