Mesothelioma or asbestosis is a terrible disease.
Mesothelioma, otherwise known as asbestos cancer or asbestosis, is a terrible disease that could have been prevented if only timely disclosures were made to the people that were exposed to the product. As far back as the 1930’s, manufacturers knew of the dangers of asbestos but did nothing about it. They failed to inform the people that came in contact with the product that there was a significant risk of developing an often fatal disease called Mesothelioma. Asbestos, a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals having the shape of thin fibrous crystals, is found in numerous applications and products including, but not limited to shipbuilding, fire retardant coatings, brake pads, concrete, bricks, pipes and fireplace cement, heat, fire, and acid resistant gaskets, pipe insulation, ceiling insulation, roofing shingles, furnace tape, fireproof drywall, flooring, roofing, lawn furniture, acoustic ceilings, plaster, and drywall joint compound. Approximately 100,000 people in the United States have died or are terminally ill, from exposure related to ship building alone.
