How Asbestos Companies Could Have Prevented Mesothelioma

The cancer-causing nature of asbestos has only been publicly known for a few decades. Astonishingly, however, some asbestos companies had already been aware of the connection between asbestos dust exposure and life-threatening medical conditions. Rather than seeking out alternative materials, many of which were already known, they decided to hide the truth and endanger the wellbeing of the public.

Now that asbestos use is banned, fiberglass has taken over as the material of choice for insulation and other applications. The first commercial use of fiberglass began in the mid 1930s-around the same time asbestos companies became aware that asbestos causes mesothelioma. Although asbestos-related diseases had been known since the 1890s, a cancer link was not proven until the 1930s.

Within a few decades of its introduction, fiberglass was already used extensively, even being formed into the bodies of some vehicles. Despite the availability of alternative substances, asbestos companies persisted in using a known carcinogen. By knowingly exposing the public to a carcinogenic substance, the asbestos industry showed blatant disregard for other human beings.
