Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

New UK Study Finds Mesothelioma Deaths Will Peak in 2016

A new study released by the United Kingdom’s Health and Safety Executive found that although mesothelioma deaths are at their highest ever, they won’t peak until 2016.  The study found that 2,156 deaths in 2007 were due to mesothelioma, up from 2,058 in 2006, and 2,046 in 2005.

In the United Kingdom, men are five times more likely to develop mesothelioma than women.  The figures taken into account for this study include only men, because the figures are not currently available for women.
