Asbestos, The Risks Involved
Chances are you have heard of asbestos, but you may not know the risks and how to protect yourself and your family. Asbestos is a mineral found naturally in many places including North America. Asbestos is widely used in both construction and manufacturing industries.
How Is Asbestos Used?
Asbestos fibers are very resilient, specifically to heat and corrosion. These qualities have made the mineral a key piece in many construction products, unfortunately, these qualities have also made the mineral incredibly toxic. Asbestos fibers can be found in adhesives, cements, drywall compounds and other building materials.
A Deeper Look Into The Risks From Asbestos Exposure
Asbestos exposure can cause lung disease and an aggressive cancer known as, mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is fast moving and almost impossible to win the battle against. With links to ovarian cancer and laryngeal cancer as a result from exposure to asbestos it’s important you are informed about asbestos exposures and the risks.
Who Is At Risk?
Anyone who has been exposed or inhaled asbestos fibers may be at risk. Those with the greatest risk are thought to be middle aged men, typically in the construction and manufacturing industries. Workplace exposure has shown to lead to a heightened risk of asbestos exposure. Don’t be misled, mesothelioma is not a cancer that targets gender, age or race.
