Why is Asbestos Dangerous to Our Health?

While the presence of asbestos is a cause for concern due to its potential for exposure, it’s essential to understand the real impact this hazardous material can have on our health. Asbestos is known for its harmful effects on the respiratory system, with long-term exposure increasing the risk of serious health conditions.

Asbestos is a risk to health when the fibers are released into the air and breathed into the lungs. The asbestos fibers may get trapped in the lungs causing inflammation and scarring over time.

Once this happens there is no way to remove them.

This can lead to respiratory issues such as difficulty breathing, coughing, and wheezing. In some cases, prolonged exposure to asbestos can result in the development of serious diseases, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

The danger lies in the fact that asbestos-related diseases often take years or even decades to manifest symptoms, making it difficult to identify the root cause.

By the time individuals become aware of their condition, the damage may already be severe, with limited treatment options available.

Furthermore, certain factors can increase the risk and severity of asbestos-related diseases.

Factors such as the duration and intensity of asbestos exposure, the type of asbestos fibers encountered, and individual susceptibility all play a role in determining the potential health consequences.

The importance of early detection and prevention cannot be emphasized enough when it comes to asbestos.

This is why proactive asbestos testing and prevention measures are vital to protecting our health.

Asbestos exposure kills 12,000 to 15,000 Americans each year.

Potentially deadly health problems which are caused by exposure to asbestos include:


Asbestosis causes irreversible damage to the lungs. Once scarring occurs, it cannot be reversed, and the condition cannot be cured.

More than 39,000 American lives are lost to this devastating condition each year.

Treatment primarily focuses on managing symptoms and preventing further exposure to asbestos.


Mesothelioma is a cancer in the lining of the lungs. It is almost always caused by asbestos exposure and is usually fatal.

The average life expectancy for mesothelioma patients is 12 to 21 months.

Asbestos Lung Cancer

It is estimated that on average 6,000 deaths a year in the US are linked to Asbestos Lung Cancer. It manifests in the same way as lung cancer, but the cause is exposure to asbestos.

Where is Asbestos Found?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring substance that has been used for thousands of years. It was favored for its excellent insulating, fire retardant properties as well as its resistance to chemical erosion. The Romans used asbestos to make tablecloths and napkins.

Surprisingly, the dangers of asbestos were also known by the Romans. Unfortunately, the dangers of asbestos exposure largely went ignored for many years. With the coming of the industrial age in the 1800’s the mining and use of asbestos increased.

The 1950s saw a huge increase in the use of asbestos in building materials for homes and commercial premises. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the federal government began regulating asbestos and passing laws that limited exposure.

In spite of all of the health concerns, asbestos is still found in many buildings, products, and substances in the US. Asbestos is found in homes, schools, buildings, and factories everywhere in the US. Asbestos itself can still legally be used in the US. The legislation regulates exposure, but it does not make asbestos use illegal.

Asbestos can still be found in many homes and buildings. It may be used for insulation, pipe cement, floor tiles, roof shingles and flashing, and siding. Asbestos popcorn ceilings are also commonly found in homes and industrial premises.

Even though the use of asbestos has declined, it is still common in our everyday lives.

Today, asbestos use is banned in 50 countries around the world, but it isn’t yet banned in the United States.

Although asbestos mining in the US stopped in 2002, it is still imported into the country for use in buildings and commercial products.

Asbestos could be in your home, your workplace, and even your children’s school.
