What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber once used in various trades for its heat, electrical, and chemical resistant properties. Asbestos is composed of millions of microscopic fibers that can easily break apart, become airborne, and be inhaled. Inhaled asbestos fibers may become lodged in the lungs and lead to lung cancer, mesothelioma, or other asbestos-related diseases.
Asbestos exposure is strongly associated with several potentially fatal illnesses, the most serious of which is malignant mesothelioma. This is aggressive cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, heart, abdomen, and other organs. Malignant mesothelioma does not appear for years or even decades after the initial exposure.
