Millions of people have been exposed to asbestos
Asbestos is a mineral that comes from the ground just like coal. Beginning in the early 1900’s and up through the late 1980’s, asbestos was used in hundreds of different products, including pipe insulation, cements, joint compounds, gaskets, floor tile, brake linings, packing, wallboard, boilers, furnaces, and many other industrial, construction, and household products.
It is estimated that over 25 million people have been exposed to asbestos during their lifetime.
Asbestos-related cancers and diseases
Exposure to asbestos is known to cause the following types of cancers:
- Lung Cancer
- Larynx Cancer
- Esophageal Cancer
- Colon Cancer
Exposure to asbestos can also cause serious non-cancerous diseases such as:
- Pulmonary Asbestosis
- Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease
How people were exposed to asbestos
Millions of workers have been exposed to asbestos working in various job settings. Some of those work places include:
- U.S. Navy
- Oil Refineries
- Steel Mills
- Chemical Companies
- Power Plants
- Heavy Industries
- Construction (Industrial, Commercial, Residential)
- Motor Vehicle Repair
Some of the trades that frequently handled or were exposed to asbestos include:
- Construction Laborers
- Auto Mechanics
Other individuals experienced exposure to asbestos while performing home improvement work or changing brakes on their cars.
Tragically, wives and children have also contracted asbestos diseases and cancers as a result of asbestos being brought into the home by their husbands and fathers.
Asbestos companies conspired to cover-up the dangers of asbestos
The dangers of asbestos have been known for over 100 years. The first study about the dangers of asbestos was published in 1906. Asbestos companies did everything they could throughout the 1900’s to cover-up the dangers of asbestos. Millions of workers were exposed to asbestos without knowing about its deadly effects.
