image showing asbestos Asbestos is a naturally occurring carcinogenic fibrous silicate mineral 18,000 times smaller than a human hair. Known for its fire-resistant properties, asbestos has been used in construction for well over 100 years. Asbestos products that have not been disturbed pose little danger. However, if disturbed, it can pose a serious health threat to anyone in the vicinity. Tiny fibers of the substance can contaminate the air and if inhaled, will aggravate lung tissue. Once in your lungs, asbestos causes long-term damage leading to asbestos cancer or mesothelioma. Asbestosnation.org and the Environment Working Group estimate that annual asbestos-related fatalities number between 12,000 and 15,000 in the United States.
