Asbestos was long used for many different products, especially building materials such as flooring, insulation, and roof panels. By the 1930's, the effects of asbestos exposure and inhalation were beginning to be noted, but it was only classified as a carcinogen many decades later. In Germany, a ban on asbestos was passed in 1993. As of September 2016, although a number of North American libraries show holdings of this title, the vast majority appear to be for a small number of issues. Complete runs are very rare.
