Asbestos Products and Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos companies in the U. S. mined over 800,000 tons of asbestos ore during the peak consumption period from 1930 to 1980.

Asbestos companies were negligent in warning their employees and product users about the dangers of asbestos exposure to their long-term health.

Asbestos was used in over 3,000 consumer products through 1980.


Thirty million tons of asbestos materials were used in U. S. during the 20th century.

One hundred twenty-five million Americans have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace.

One hundred seven thousand people worldwide die from asbestos-related diseases each year.

Asbestos kills between 12,000 to 15,000 Americans each year.

Eleven million people were exposed to toxic asbestos products between 1940 and 1978 (National Institutes of Health (NIH).


Workers exposed to asbestos are seven times more likely to die of an asbestos-related disease than the general population.

Asbestos Product Exposure in the United States

The first use of asbestos was in the U. S. in steam engines in 1928. Asbestos was used during WW2 in ships, military bases, vehicles, aircraft and building products. Asbestos materials are resistant to heat, insulating, fireproofing, cheap, flexible and were used in over 3,000 products from the early 1900s to 1980.
