Asbestos exposure: Five symptoms and four deadly diseases caused by asbestos


The danger from asbestos comes from its composition, as the silicate is a fibrous material.

When damaged, it releases a cloud of fibres that humans may breathe in.

Even one-time exposure can embed these fibres in the lungs, causing irritation and scarring.

Symptoms may not appear for several decades – between 10 and 40 years – after that initial exposure.
