Mesothelioma history dates back to the mining of
asbestos in the late 1800's. By the turn of
the century, health risks of working in the mining
operations of asbestos were becoming known.
Throat lesions, lung diseases and other problems
were beginning to appear in some of the minors.
Because of the lag time between exposure to
asbestos dust and fibers and the symptoms leading to a
diagnosis of Mesothelioma, the link between the two
was not readily apparent for years. Mining of
asbestos fibers began in earnest in the 1940's and the
incidence of Mesothelioma increased, too. But
the widespread use of cigarettes occurred during the
same time period and the relationship between
Mesothelioma and asbestos was not readily apparent.
In the early 1960's studies began to appear in
medical journals showing a link between Mesothelioma
and working in or living around asbestos mines.
The mines, which were mostly outside the U.S., were
able to suppress the conclusions of these studies and
it wasn't until the 1970's that the first warning of
the dangers of asbestos began to appear to the public.
It wasn't until the late 1970's that the first civil
proceedings began to be brought against the asbestos
industry by some Mesothelioma victims.
Today the Occupational and Safety Administration (OSHA)
has prescribed strict standards in the United States
for the asbestos industry. Many products like
home insulation no longer use asbestos and nearly all
structures containing asbestos have had the insulation
removed under OSHA standards. New victims of
Mesothelioma are still turning up as the disease
slowly shows itself.
