Asbestos Health Risks
Asbestos exposure can cause a number of negative health effects, including the following:
- Persistent cough
- Chest tightness and pain
- Loss of appetite
- Scaring of the lungs
- Lung cancer
Certain factors that increase your risk of contracting an asbestos-related condition include smoking, prolonged or excessive asbestos exposure. It is important to note that asbestos is inhaled through airborne particles, so asbestos containing materials pose little to no health risk they are left undisturbed in an inaccessible area, such as sealed behind walls. However, even a small disruption such as a minor vibration or movement can release asbestos particles into the air, leading to an exposure risk.
