History of Asbestos

Asbestos has been in use since Ancient Greek Times. Interestingly, the Greeks were aware even then that it was a dangerous substance. At least two men during this time noted that asbestos caused sickness in the lungs of the people who wore clothing containing asbestos. However, much like modern times, the Greeks were so enamored with the benefits of asbestos, they overlooked the potential danger.

1700s and 1800s

Asbestos use declined during the Middle Ages, but there is some evidence it was used by royalty of the time for household goods. It came back into popular use during the 1700s and then especially during the Industrial Revolution of the late 1800s. This was when many of its modern uses came into effect. Manufacturers recognized how affordable and effective asbestos can be and began using it for steam pipes, ovens, boilers, and kilns. Asbestos has a very high tolerance for heat, so it was ideal for use in high-heat products.

Modern Use

Medical researchers began to recognize a problem with asbestos just prior to the 1920s. The first official diagnosis of asbestosis occurred in 1924. A 33 year old woman who had been working with asbestos for 20 years died from respiratory problems, prompting those in the medical community to begin studying the effects of asbestos. Nearly a quarter of people participating in the official study on the effects of asbestos had lung disease. In reaction to the research, England passed laws in the 1930s requiring ventilation in asbestos filled working environments. The United States followed suit two decades later.

Information was available during this time linking asbestos to cancer, but unfortunately, many in the industry ignored the warnings. It was around this same time silicosis was undergoing scrutiny and manufacturers were concerned they would be unable to sustain their businesses in light of the payments made to victims. Asbestos companies also covered up the potential link between their material and cancer because they saw the financial damage done to the silica industry. There were alternatives to asbestos containing products, but they were more expensive.

Additionally, it was easy to cover up the danger because it can take so long for symptoms of asbestos related cancer to develop. Many people who worked in industries that exposed them to asbestos are just now beginning to see the effects of that exposure. Unfortunately, mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer and little can be done about it once it takes hold. If you were exposed to asbestos, it is important to let your doctor know so he or she can assess your risk.
