Asbestos is a naturally occurring group of minerals that contain strong and flexible fibers. Because it is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, asbestos was used as a multipurpose material used in a number of building, manufacturing, and commercial applications.
The qualities that make asbestos a highly desirable material also make it deadly. When disturbed, asbestos fibers turn into microscopic airborne dust particles. These particles/fibers can linger in the air for hours or days and can attach to clothing or work instruments. If inhaled, they can cause serious health problems. Asbestos exposure has been known to cause a number of cancers, the most notable being mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that normally attacks the lungs and abdomen. Here is a partial list of occupations that are likely to have caused asbestos exposure.
