"The series dealt with the continuing exposure to cancer-causing asbestos by hundreds of thousands of miners, construction workers, home gardeners, auto mechanics and others. Industry claimed there was no danger and government, for the most part, believed that asbestos had been banned.... The stories that followed (Seattle P-I 1999 coverage) in 2000 documented that miners in other places are being killed by the same fibers today and asbestos can still be found in such benign consumer products as crayons, play sand, garden products, attic insulation, wall board, construction products and vehicle brake shoes."
