Asbestos exposure causes mesothelioma
Asbestos exposure in the workplace is the most common cause of mesothelioma. While not as common, second-hand exposure to asbestos fibers on workers’ clothing also puts family members at risk. Home construction, renovation, and demolition often expose both workers and homeowners to asbestos-containing materials. This is especially true for buildings constructed in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, when asbestos materials were commonly used in home and school construction.
Many working-class people in steel plants, chemical plants, oil refineries, automotive factories, railroads, shipyards, naval vessels, and the construction industry were regularly exposed to asbestos. Because mesothelioma has a long latency period (the time between exposure and disease), people did not develop mesothelioma until later in life. They had no inkling that decades earlier, workplace asbestos exposure would set them up for a deadly cancer.
