Asbestos became increasingly popular among manufacturers and builders in the late 19th century because of its sound absorption, average tensile strength, and its resistance to heat, electrical, and chemical damage. The asbestos fibers were mixed with cement or woven into fabric or mats. However, it has recently gained attention for its negative impact on the health of those exposed to it!
The inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause serious illnesses including malignant lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Long-term exposure to high concentrations of asbestos fibers is what causes health problems; asbestos exists in the ambient air at low-levels, which itself does not cause health problems. Asbestos has been banned in certain areas around the world and laws have been enacted to prevent asbestos exposure, extraction, and the manufacturing and processing of asbestos products.
