Tiny and sharp asbestos fibers most often enter the human body in breathing. The inhalation of these fibers can lead to serious, and often life-threatening, cancerous and noncancerous diseases such as:
- Lung cancer
In 1989, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a plan to phase out the use of asbestos, but the ban was overturned just two years later. Unfortunately, this means that asbestos-related diseases will continue to manifest in children and adults for years to come. Sadly, when people seek medical help for asbestos exposure problems, medical personnel may misdiagnose cancer or asbestos in the lungs as asthma.
Where are asbestos fibers found?
Asbestos is an excellent insulator and is heat- and fire-resistant. It has often been found in construction materials, small appliances and household items such as:
- Ceiling tiles
- Oven mitts
Many people who suffer from asbestos-related health conditions may not know they have been in contact with the fibers. However, most individuals with these health conditions had direct contact with asbestos through their work in mines, oil refineries, automotive manufacturing and repair or even construction. Additionally, those who have chosen to renovate older homes may have unknowingly placed themselves and their families at risk.
