Mesothelioma History

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.
