A new study released by the UK's Health and Safety Executive reports that mesothelioma deaths in that country are higher than they ever have been, but won't peak for another seven years. This figure includes strictly men, as the data on women is not currently available. It is believed that the ratio between British men and British women with mesothelioma was 5:1. In 2007, 2,156 people died from the disease in the United Kingdom.
