Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In Western Europe, Scandinavia, North America and Australia the manufacture and use of asbestos products peaked in the 1970's. The current incidence of mesothelioma ranges from 14 to 35 cases/million/year in eleven industrialized countries which had used asbestos 2.0 to 5.5 kg/capita/year about 25 years earlier. A significant linear correlation (r = 0.80, p = 0.01) exists between the two variables. Accordingly, about 170 tons of produced and consumed asbestos will cause at least one death from mesothelioma, most often as a consequence of occupational exposure.
