August 2021 – Asbestos Service Kelowna Views the History of Asbestos.
Asbestos has a long history in Canada. Canada was a major force in the asbestos industry. In 1850, the first asbestos discovery was made in Quebec. As the industry took off more and more workers began falling ill with horrible diseases. McGill researched this and found a link between working with asbestos and becoming severely ill. What researchers did with the data next was shocking! They were paid off for 6 years to keep the discovery under wraps!
