Description:   Caption: Asbestos fibers - chrysotile type. Asbestos is a group of fibrous naturally occurring minerals including chrysotile, amosite, crocidolite, anthophyllite, actinolite and tremolite. Asbestos has been used in a variety of products for purposes of insulation, friction products, fire protection, sound dampening, texturing, chemical resistance, and other applications. Asbestos is a health hazard and causes asbestos-related illnesses, such as asbestosis and mesothelioma. Asbestos is a health concern because it is a carcinogen and may cause cancer. Asbestos can break down into very small fibers, which can become airborne and stay airborne for a long time. Exposure generally occurs by inhalation or ingestion. Asbestos causes asbestos-related illnesses such as asbestosis, mesothelioma, and other cancers. Asbestosis is an illness characterized by the scarring of the lungs which reduces the lung?s ability to function. Mesothelioma is a cancer of the membrane lining the chest or abdominal cavity. Mesothelioma is specifically related to asbestos exposure. Lung cancer and other cancers have been linked to asbestos exposure.
