From the late 1800s until today, thousands of people have lost their lives to mesothelioma, which is a cancer of the lining of the lungs. (In rare cases, mesothelioma may also affect membranes surrounding other organs.) As early as the 1930s, professional literature (accessible to industrial, medical and government interests) had begun to focus on the risk to people's health posed by exposure to asbestos.
