Asbestos is a mineral that consists of very fine, microscopic, needle-shaped fibers. The fibers are so small that you cannot see them unless the concentration in the air is very heavy. Asbestos is strong, resists heat, acids, friction, and is virtually indestructible; therefore, it is an excellent material for many uses. Asbestos becomes a health hazard only when these materials crumble, fall apart, are damaged or ripped. When asbestos materials are damaged the fibers become air born where they may stay suspended for a long period of time. The fibers can then be inhaled and become lodged deeply in the lungs.What are Asbestos Related Diseases?
