THE HISTORY OF ASBESTOS
Asbestos is best known as a 20th century product and as the subject of possibly the longest running civil injustices in the world today.
The truth is that asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral with a history spanning many thousands of years. Asbestos was first mined by the Greeks around 5000BC and since that time has been widely used in industry. The word “Asbestos” comes from the Greek word meaning “inextinguishable”. Throughout history, asbestos has gone from miracle mineral to a global danger, and is the cause of asbestos related diseases including mesothelioma, asbestosis and cancer.
