Contents Notes
Until the mid-1960s, asbestos had a reputation as a lifesaver. In 1960, it became known that exposure to asbestos can cause mesothelioma, a virulent and lethal cancer. Yet the bulk of the world's asbestos was mined after 1960. This is a global history of how the asbestos industry defended their product throughout the 20th century.
