asbestos

While once a staple in construction materials, fireproofing, and other textiles, asbestos has come from being a popular building material to being regarded as highly dangerous due to the fatal side effects it can cause.

What is asbestos?

Asbestos are types of silicate minerals which when the fibers are inhaled, they stick and form a protective layer in the lungs. These fibers remain in the lungs for years and eventually create cancer cells where it goes undetected often for several years or longer.

What kinds of cancer can occur from asbestos exposure?

One of the most common results of routine contact with asbestos is the development of Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that commonly affects the lining of the lungs or the chest wall. It can also form in the lining of the Pericardium (the protective sac around the heart), or in the lining of the abdomen. More often than not, Mesothelioma is an aggressive and fatal form of cancer.
