Asbestos fibres found in beer from the 1970’s thought to be the cause of soaring rise in throat cancer

Beer with Asbestos Fibres from the 1970’s is blamed for the soaring throat cancer – Cases have QUADRUPLE over the last 50 years – with 90% affecting men

Fibres were used in breweries to filter out microorganisms that affect beer quality
Some pubs added asbestos to left-over beer to make it ready to serve again
Exposure causes cases of gullet cancer to increase four times

Asbestos became weak when it was old and dried out, releasing dangerous particles into the air

Cancer Research UK says there are 25 new cases of gullet cancer, also known as oesophageal cancer every day and it is the 14th most common cancer in the UK.
