What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a dangerous fiber that has been used in the past in manufacturing and construction. It has been linked to several dangerous conditions, including many cancers, which make any kind of exposure to asbestos a potentially life-threatening situation.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), when asbestos is disturbed, fiber particles can become airborne. These particles are so small, that victims may not even realize they’re breathing them in, but over time, they can lead to dangerous health conditions.
