Why is asbestos still happening?

The rate of asbestos diseases like asbestosis and mesothelioma is still continuing at its peak level in Kent and nationally. Tragically in the UK more than 5,000 people a year die from mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer. This is still happening because although widespread use of new asbestos virtually ceased by the early 1980s, asbestos diseases usually do not develop until 30 to 50 years or more after the exposure.
