Asbestos Documentary By New Jersey Mesothelioma Lawyers

(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 24, 2008 ) New Jersey mesothelioma lawyers Cohen, Placitella & Roth, P.C. recently released an updated version of “The History of Asbestos.” This asbestos education tool, written by leading asbestos mesothelioma attorney Chris Placitella, chronicles the strategy of silence adopted by the asbestos industry to keep the public ignorant of the health risks of asbestos exposure.

“The History of Asbestos” is a 25-minute film that investigates the decades of lies, half truths, and deceptions practiced by the asbestos industry. From the first asbestos claim in 1925, to the misnamed Air Hygiene Foundation of the 1930s, and the bankruptcy of the major asbestos companies in the 1980s, it tells the story of the asbestos cover-up and the staggering number of victims it claimed through asbestosis and mesothelioma fatalities. Hidden documents, corporate negligence, and a policy of deception contributed to a conspiracy aimed at preventing asbestos industry workers from learning that asbestos dust could kill them.

Asbestos is a carcinogen that was once widely used on construction sites and in products such as insulation, ceiling tiles, and car brakes. Breathing in asbestos causes mesothelioma, a type of cancer that affects the lining around the lungs and other organs. Malignant mesothelioma can take two forms: a cancer of the membrane that surrounds the lungs and lines the wall of the chest cavity (pleural mesothelioma) or a cancer of the membrane that covers the organs in the abdominal cavity (peritoneal mesothelioma). Malignant mesothelioma is almost always fatal, and even light asbestos exposure can result in cancer.

The New Jersey mesothelioma attorneys of Cohen, Placitella & Roth have extensive experience handling asbestos exposure cases and mesothelioma lawsuits. They have been helping New Jersey residents affected by mesothelioma receive much needed monetary compensation for over 35 years. “We fight for them like they are our own family,” says Chris Placitella, nationally renowned mesothelioma lawyer.
