List of asbestos disease medical articles

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Thousands of scientific and medical articles have chronicled human understanding of the hazards of asbestos to human life.[1][2] This understanding paralleled the growth of the industrial revolution, particularly in the textile factories and mines of Great Britain. This body of knowledge is frequently referred to in litigation as the state of the art or the benchmark for determining if a company acted within the bounds of negligent behavior. The following is a chronological list of some of the major pre-1950 scientific and medical articles relating to the knowledge of the medical and scientific communities regarding asbestos and disease in humans:
