What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral used in various industrial projects and building materials from the early 1900s onward. Asbestos has several benefits when used in buildings, including its high tensile strength, fire-resistant properties, and ability to be broken up into small fibers for insulation.
Unfortunately, no one knew how dangerous asbestos would turn out to be. This material can be easily inhaled due to its microscopic fibers, leading to debilitating illnesses years down the line. Although it is not outright banned in the United States, it is heavily regulated.
How Harmful Is Asbestos Exposure?
Asbestos can break up into tiny fibers, permanently attaching themselves to the lining of the lungs, the lungs themselves, and even the linings of the heart. Over time, asbestos will remain in the body, causing damage that might not be detected until well over 20 to 40 years after exposure.
