Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos is a fibrous mineral which was used for over a century in thousands of products which were sold and used in Ohio. Beginning in the early 1900s, scientists began to notice a link between asbestos exposure and serious ailments including mesothelioma.
Warnings regarding asbestos exposure began being issued by foreign governments in the 1930s, but the American asbestos manufacturers fought for years to bury the science which showed that their products were killing people.
The amount of mesothelioma deaths and asbestos-related diseases eventually became well publicized, resulting in the ban of most asbestos products by the 1970s. Unfortunately, mesothelioma has a long latency period and people can develop mesothelioma decades after their initial exposure to asbestos products.
