Asbestos can be found everywhere, from your walls, fabrics, brake linings, and many more, as it is a naturally occurring fibrous mineral that is anti-heat, fire, and electricity. If you are exposed to it might become deadly to your health. It has been known since it’s discovery that Asbestos can cause mesothelioma cancer in lungs, abdomen, or heart. Therefore, Asbestos is harmful to anyone exposed to it.
Asbestos is used in different commercial products, especially for industrial use. But due to its harmful effects to the human body, its legality has been questioned by different countries like the United Kingdom but not yet in the United States and Canada. Although the Canadian government has announced in 2018 that they will be banning Asbestos.
Asbestos is everywhere. Most households, especially those that are old houses do have asbestos for their attic insulation, pipes, flooring, roof, and wall shingles. These parts of the house are specially designed to avoid being caught on fire.
No one is safe from Asbestos. Despite its presence in different areas around you, even in different workplaces, exposure to Asbestos saves no one. It is even more deadly than skin cancer, that is caused by too much exposure to Ultraviolet sun rays. Although there are cases that people who are exposed to Asbestos tolerated the effects, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
