The Center for Disease control has issued its update on the estimate of the number of mesothelioma that occur each year in the United states. According to the estimates asbestos related mesothelioma will continue until 2055. According to the report “Because mesothelioma manifests 20–40 years after first exposure, the number of mesothelioma deaths will likely peak by 2010 (4). The analysis described in this report indicates that the annual number of mesothelioma deaths is still increasing, and future cases will continue to reflect the extensive past use of asbestos.”
