Report Predicts Thousands of Korean Mesothelioma Deaths from Use of Asbestos Products, According to Surviving Mesothelioma

Scientists in Korea say “slates” made of concrete and chrysotile asbestos are among the products that are likely to keep the mesothelioma death rate rising in the country until it peaks in 2021. Surviving Mesothelioma has just posted an article on the new research. Click here to read it now.

“We predicted the mortality from asbestos-related diseases by year, from 2014 to 2036, according to the amount of asbestos used,” explains study author Su-Young Kim of Kyungpook National University in Daegu. “As a result, it was predicted that a total of 1942 people (maximum, 3476) will die by 2036.”

The report in Science of the Total Environment predicts that the asbestos-containing slates alone, used extensively in Korean buildings in the 1970s, could cause 555 deaths from mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases by 2031.

“This report is a sobering reminder that, because of the long latency period of mesothelioma, the threat posed by asbestos exposure does not end when the exposure is over,” notes Surviving Mesothelioma Managing Editor, Alex Strauss.
