An exclusive white paper offered by KCIC is the focus of a new Madison-St. Clair Record article. KCIC Vice President Elizabeth Hanke is quoted in the piece, which is titled "Study predicts most new cases of mesothelioma will not be related to occupational exposure after 2040".
The white paper, available here, is authored by Maine-based risk assessment analyst Bertram Price, a mathematician. In it, he examines data showing that after 2040, new cases of mesothelioma will largely be "background" cases — that is, not linked to asbestos exposure.
According to the Madison-St. Clair Record, which covers the legal system in Madison and St. Clair counties in Illinois,"The findings raise questions over the defensive strategies of defendants named in asbestos-related litigation, which has been ongoing now for two decades."
