What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is made of microscopic fibers that are extremely durable and able to resist fire and most chemical reactions. As a result, when it was first discovered, it was declared a “miracle mineral” and was used for years. Primarily, because of its heat resistant properties, asbestos was an extremely popular choice for building materials including:
- Roofing shingles
- Floor tiles
- Ceiling material
- Cement compounds
- Textile products
However, in the 1970s, we learned that despite its strength and ability to withstand extreme heat, asbestos is extremely hazardous and therefore unfit to be used in building materials.
Why is Asbestos Hazardous?
The same durable property that once made asbestos so attractive as a building material is precisely the reason why it can be so dangerous to our health. Asbestos fibers are microscopic, a fraction of the diameter of human hair. And because they are so small, it is very easy for these fibers to be inhaled. If they are inhaled, they can cling to the respiratory system, including the lining of the lungs and inner cavity tissue. Thanks to their durable nature, they are almost impossible to be expelled or broken down once they become lodged in the respiratory system’s soft tissue.
Over the years, hundreds of thousands of people have been exposed to asbestos in some form or another thanks to its universal use in homes and buildings. Any exposure to asbestos is hazardous as it can lead to cancer, mesothelioma and lung disease.
