Irving John Selikoff (1915–1992), as a result of his work at Mount Sinai, was very prominent in the battles in America to get asbestos-related disease recognised, which resulted in the destruction of the asbestos industry.

In retrospect, it seems he did not have all the qualifications he claimed he had,[1] even if his contribution to public health were immense.
