What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is composed of bundles of resilient fibres. It served as an excellent insulator prior to the 1970’s. In 1971 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared asbestos to be unsafe and a hazardous air pollutant causing health issues. When materials containing asbestos are disturbed or improperly removed the fibres can become airborne and often go unseen. This causes exposure without knowledge and could result in health problems 10 to 40 years after exposure to asbestos.

Airborne Asbestos

Exposure to airborne friable asbestos may result in a potential health risk by breathing in asbestos fibres. Continued exposure can increase the amount of fibres that remain in the lung and fibers embedded in lung tissue over time may cause serious lung diseases. Asbestos fibres associated with these health risks are too small to be seen with the naked eye, and smokers are at higher risk of developing asbestos-related diseases.

3 Major Health Effects From Asbestos Exposure

A rare form of malignant cancer involving the lining of the lungs, chest or abdomen. This disease is always associated with asbestos exposure and is often fatal.

Inflammation and scarring of fibrous lung tissue which results in a reduction in lung capacity.

In addition to lung, laryngeal, and ovarian cancers, asbestos exposure also increases the risk of developing pharyngeal, stomach, and colon cancers.
