One of the most devastating aspects of asbestos and its ability to inflict serious physical harm is the fact that, for many years, asbestos was an integral component of many products, structures and industries. This meant that it was not only builders, workers and government employees who experienced asbestos exposure and a resulting elevated risk of mesothelioma and other harm. It also the people who lived in buildings constructed with asbestos, family members of workers that handled asbestos and millions of others who came into incidental contact with the dangerous fibers who suffered as a result.
