Mesothelioma: the British disease
By the end of 2013 more than 60,000 people in the UK will have died from asbestos-related diseases this century. Mesothelioma deaths have risen since 2000, with 2,347 deaths reported in 2010.
Worse is to come DWP expects roughly 28,000 deaths from mesothelioma between July 2012 and March 2024.
