Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate material that has been used by manufacturers in the late 1900’s. It was used for its strength, resistance to heat and fire, electrical and chemical damage. Numerous tradesmen and families were exposed to this dangerous product. Manufacturers new for years that it was a dangerous product, but covered it up. It can take upwards of 10-50 years for symptoms to occur.
Asbestosis is the scarring of lung tissue from asbestos inhalation. Symptoms are chronic cough, shortness of breath and chest pain. Asbestosis can lead to lung cancer and Mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is a terminal cancer of the mesothelium, which is the membrane that protects and covers the lungs. This cancer can also metastasize and spread to other parts of the body.
