The versatility, strength, flexibility, and resistance to chemicals, heat and flame of asbestos helped to make it one of the most widely-used "product enhancers" of the 20th century. It was the miracle mineral that could make almost any product more efficient.
However, studies began to show that people who were exposed to asbestos through workplace exposures, consumer products or construction materials were being deleteriously harmed. As such, it comes as no surprise that the use of asbestos in the 21st century has strongly declined.
