My husband's parent's home was built back in the 60's. The time when asbestos was considered an integral part of every home. Back then, nobody knew that asbestos could be bad for the health. None of them has ever heard of mesothelioma (a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos), not until a relative in the US married a mesothelioma lawyer. And since the house is very old, they have decided to have it rebuilt. They have lived there for so many years and everyone was relieved when they found out that none of them have been exposed.
