What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a fibrous material that has been used widely for insulation and fireproofing buildings. This material has been discovered to be quite dangerous, as the fibers can be inhaled and become stuck in the lungs which can cause scarring and inflammation. Eventually, enough scarring will affect breathing and lead to shortness of breath and lung infections and heart or respiratory failure. There is no effective treatment for this condition, called asbestosis. The development of asbestosis depends on several factors, including the intensity and duration of exposure and the relative age of the person when exposed. Asbestosis can show no symptoms for between 10 and 30 years, which makes identifying the source difficult. There is no "safe" level of exposure to asbestos. The Centers for Disease Control states that over 1,300 people died from asbestos in 200, compared with 77 in 1968. Follow this link for more information: http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/pdf/wk/mm5328.pdf Those who have been exposed to asbestos have developed several different types of diseases. The four major types of diseases related to asbestos include: 1. Pleural mesothelioma 2. Peritoneal mesothelioma 3. Asbestosis 4. Lung Cancer There are no cures for these conditions.
