What Is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a fibrous silicate mineral which is highly heat resistant and was commonly used for insulation and fire proofing before its damaging properties became widely known. Asbestos fibres cannot be seen, smelled or tasted making it easy for a person to unknowingly ingest them. Once in the body, these fibres are incredibly difficult to dispel and over the years they lead to inflammation, scarring and genetic damage to the body’s cells. The long term effects of asbestos ingestion include numerous adverse health effects, including lung cancer.
