What Is Asbestos?


(information provided by cancer monthly)
 

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was put into thousands of industrial and consumer products such as oven mitts, hair dryers, dry wall, plumbing and electrical, roof shingles, flooring, insulation, and even cigarette filters. Many houses built before 1977 contained asbestos material, and sawing, drilling can disturb asbestos fibers.  These microscopic fibers can then become airborne and become ingested or inhaled. There are approximately 2,200 cases of mesothelioma diagnosed in the U.S. every year. It is unfortunate that some companies continued to put asbestos into their products long after they knew the dangers of asbestos to humans. Mesothelioma, which is a terminal lung cancer, can be caused by asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer that develops from cells of the mesothelium which is the lining that covers the internal organs of the body. Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos. It can take decades to develop mesothelioma from asbestos exposure.
