Products And Materials Containing Asbestos
Asbestos has been used in a wide array of products since the 19th century, but was most widely used after World War II into the 1980s. Lawsuits against companies producing and installing asbestos began in the mid-20th century after doctors and researchers began noting severe lung problems among workers who handled asbestos.
