Mesothelioma Takes Away Merlin Olsen

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.

Merlin Olsen is a former player of the team Los Angeles Rams’ “Fearsome Foursome” for 15 years until he turned into acting in the TV show Little House on the Prairie.

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.
