An analysis from the Bulletin of Hygiene examining illnesses among dock workers at the naval base at Willheimshaven during the 1930s, including those who became ill as a result of asbestos exposure.
Navy veterans, merchant marines, dock workers, and other sailors are among those at the highest risk of diseases caused by exposure to asbestos.
