Asbestos was used widely in consumer products, building materials and research applications for more than a century here in the United States. Iterations of the products shown above were available for purchase through the early 1980s. Since asbestos remains legal here in the United States, many asbestos products remain on the market today and continue to cause deadly diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestosis.
