Why is Asbestos Dangerous to Our Health?

Asbestos is a hazardous material that can cause serious health problems when its fibers are inhaled.

Once inhaled, the fibers can become lodged in the lungs and cause long-term damage.

Exposure to asbestos is responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans each year.

The health problems associated with asbestos exposure include:

  • Asbestosis: A chronic lung disease that occurs after prolonged exposure to asbestos. It is a fatal disease with no known cure.
  • Mesothelioma: A type of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs and is almost always caused by asbestos exposure. It is also a fatal disease.
  • Asbestos Lung Cancer: This type of cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos and has similar symptoms to lung cancer. It is estimated that around 4,800 cases of asbestos-related lung cancer occur in the US each year.

It is important to note that the health effects of asbestos exposure may not become apparent until many years after the exposure has occurred. Therefore, it is crucial to take necessary precautions to prevent exposure to asbestos.

Where is Asbestos Found?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in the past for its insulating and fire-resistant properties.

Despite the well-known health risks associated with asbestos exposure, it can still be found in many buildings, products, and substances in the US.

Asbestos can be found in homes, schools, buildings, and factories throughout the US. It is commonly used for insulation, pipe cement, floor tiles, roof shingles, flashing, and siding.

Asbestos popcorn ceilings are also a common feature in homes and industrial premises.

Although the use of asbestos has declined substantially since 2002, it is still present in many everyday products and materials. While asbestos mining in the US stopped in 2002, it is still imported into the country for use in buildings and commercial products.

Despite the health concerns, asbestos itself can still legally be used in the US. However, legislation regulates exposure to limit the risk of asbestos-related illnesses.

If there are concerns that there may be asbestos in a home or building, it is important to seek professional testing services.
