The Link Between Asbestos and Mesothelioma

Originally, asbestos was discovered to be an inexpensive material that could be used for insulating or fireproofing. Most insulation materials before the mid 1970s contained asbestos, as did thousands of other construction materials. Around the turn of the century, however, people began to notice an unusually large number of deaths and lung problems arising in asbestos mining towns. In the 1930s, major medical journals began featuring articles that linked asbestos to cancer. Even though proof that asbestos was carcinogenic was overwhelming, many companies ignored the scientific evidence and continued to use asbestos to manufacture their products. Some companies blatantly disregarded the warnings, claiming that asbestos was more helpful than harmful; other companies took lofty measures to cover up their continued use of asbestos, thereby risking the lives of their workers and anyone who would come in contact with their products.
