There Is Often A Long Lag Between Exposure and Disease
Many of the asbestos-related conditions can take years to manifest and many workers who were exposed long ago are just now being diagnosed with asbestos-related injuries and diseases such as cancers and difficulty breathing due to asbestos exposure (asbestosis). These diseases are generally caused by asbestos fibers that were inhaled or ingested in the work place. However, the longest latency period of any asbestos-related condition is that of mesothelioma.
