Brief History of Asbestos
For years, asbestos was used in many products because of its flame resistant and durable qualities. However, by the late 1970s documented studies began to show the harmful effects caused from breathing in asbestos fibres by studying workers who were in contact with it on a daily basis. It was at this time that asbestos manufacturing began to decline before coming to a stop altogether.
Is Asbestos a Hazard?
When disturbed, asbestos releases hundreds of tiny fibres into the air, which can be easily breathed in by anyone in the immediate area. Once inhaled, these fibres are carried to the lower regions of the lungs where they become lodged, causing multiple health problems, including:
- Fibrotic lung disease
- Changes to the lining of the chest cavity
- Reduced respiratory function
- Lung cancer
- Enlarged heart
Though any kind of exposure to asbestos can cause serious health effects, the outlook is worse for those who have been exposed to high concentrations, or for a longer period of time, or frequently. This includes those who have worked with the material in the past.
