What Is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber. It is found in both rock and soil and has properties that make it ideal for chemical resistance and fire retardation. For this reason, it is a substance that has been used widely for many years in a broad range of industries and production types.

The United States began to regulate asbestos use in the 1970s, once the link between asbestos and deadly diseases became certain. For many years, workers were unknowingly exposed to dangerously high quantities of this substance. Since symptoms can take as many as 50 years to develop, many workers may not know they have suffered the damaging results of asbestos exposure until many years after leaving their workplaces.

How Asbestos Causes Lung Scarring

The microscopic, needle-like fibers that make up asbestos can become trapped in the body’s soft tissue when inhaled. Over time, scarring in the tissue occurs as the body tries to expel these tough, resistant fibers. This leads to symptoms such as dry coughing, chest pain, and difficulty breathing.
