Home / Blog / Asbestos Dangers Minimized by Industry

American industry and spin campaigns go hand-in-hand. Sometimes the subject of the spin is an embarrassment brought on by an executive’s improprieties. Other times, it’s a defective product costing the company millions in recalls. However, the worst of the worst are the spin campaigns that attempt to cover up the effects of a dangerous product, resulting in the deaths of thousands.

The tobacco industry is probably the most famous offenders. They doctored health studies, bribed government officials, and engaged in a number of other dastardly deeds to convince the public that smoking was good for you. A less known but equally deadly cover-up was launched when the ill effects of asbestos inhalation was first reported. Industry tried to minimize the risks, leading to thousands of additional victims being exposed to the deadly material.
