What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a heat-resistant fiber silicate mineral that can be woven into fire-resistant materials for fire proofing use in construction projects and industries. For decades building contractors have used asbestos fibers to insulate ceilings and walls. Inhaling these minute particles can damage your lungs. These particles are so small they can remain in the air you are breathing for hours or even days.
It can take several years to notice any signs or symptoms of asbestos poisoning. Symptoms include: dry cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, tightness in chest, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). Other health issues that can be attributed to asbestos poisoning include: lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis (hardening of the lungs), pulmonary hypertension, and damage to immune and digestive systems.
