Mesothelioma Lawyer - Article - Why is Asbestos Bad for you

Posted on Feb 10, 2006 | DailyPress

Why is Asbestos Bad for you?

Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was used commonly in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire-retardant.

The Environmental Protection Agency has banned several asbestos products. Manufacturers have also voluntarily limited uses of asbestos. Today, asbestos is most commonly found in older homes, in pipe and furnace insulation materials, shingles, paint, coating materials and floor tiles.

Elevated concentrations of airborne asbestos can occur after materials are disturbed by cutting, sanding, drilling or other activities. Improper attempts to remove these materials can release asbestos fibers into the air.

The most dangerous asbestos fibers are too small to be visible. After they are inhaled, they can remain and accumulate in the lungs. Asbestos can cause mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer.
