Asbestos: A Brief History
Asbestos is a naturally occurring material that has been used extensively in the construction industry. Nearly every building built prior to 1980 may contain asbestos in some form. It was widely used because of its special properties of being very resistant to destruction by heat or chemicals, and its fibers are extremely durable. These characteristics led to its use in wall insulation, paint, sprayed- or troweled-on surfacing materials, ceiling and floor materials, pipe, boiler, and duct insulation, cement filler and a variety of other products.
Possible Health Effects
Several types of disease can result from exposure to asbestos. Exposure to asbestos occurs when asbestos fibers of various sizes are released into the air and are inhaled. The smaller fibers can remain in the air for long periods of time. These fibers are so small that they are only visible with a microscope. It takes approximately 600 asbestos fibers bundled together to equal to the thickness of a human hair. These microscopic fibers can travel through the upper airways and become embedded in the lungs.
