Asbestos History

Asbestos History: Though the use of asbestos goes back further, it became most prevalent beginning in the late 1800s. While asbestos provided many benefits in countless products throughout the twentieth century, it also caused significant health risks to those exposed to its microscopic fibers. These health issues include mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.

Exposure to asbestos, particularly over a long period of time, can cause serious health issues, such as mesothelioma and asbestosis.
