What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was used in construction building due to its fire resistant qualities. Despite its fire resistance, it is extremely detrimental to your health as asbestos particles in the air can easily be inhaled or ingested.Once your body takes in the asbestos particles, they will lodge in various body cavities, particularly your lungs.
Unfortunately, it is fairly certain that any exposure to asbestos is too much. This is due to the following:
- Asbestos fibers are so small and easily enter into the body, making it impossible to determine your level of exposure.
- It is quite difficult to contain asbestos as it can easily be picked up by the wind or spread by asbestos-exposed workers.
- Often times, workers can expose their families to asbestos because the fibers are on their clothes.
