Firefighters may be at increased risk of occupational disease

There are many noble professions. Firefighter is certainly amongst them. While this occupation is noble, it is also dangerous. These brave men and women put their lives on the line on a daily basis to help keep Iowans safe. Sadly, even if they are able to survive each individual fire unscathed, these firefighters' exposure to airborne chemicals oftentimes causes them to develop occupational diseases such as cancer.

Arthritis may be a disabling medical condition

Many people in Iowa struggle with some sort of arthritis. This condition is an inflammation of one or more joints that can cause extensive pain and stiffness. For some, this condition is nothing more than an annoyance. For others, though, arthritis can be debilitating. When arthritis is so severe that it affects an individual's ability to work, it may be time for that individual to consider applying for Social Security disability benefits.
