For decades, citizens of Australia have been performing renovations and building new structures in their homes. Unfortunately, this has led to asbestos exposure and subsequent mesothelioma for many of those tens of thousands of people. Thes people are making up what some are calling the "third wave" of mesothelioma victims.
The first two waves came from asbestos manufacturing, then working with asbestos in shipyards, construction and many other blue collar jobs. Now, renovators are being diagnosed with mesothelioma because they accidentaly uncovered asbestos in their homes over the last thirty years. Not only does this affect the people who performed the renovations, but the children who watched their parents while they worked are being diagnosed as well.
