The Dangers of Asbestos Exposure
Asbestos fibers are easily inhaled or ingested, and once in the body, they can become lodged in the lungs or other organs, causing inflammation and scarring. Over time, this damage can lead to severe health conditions, including:
Mesothelioma: A rare and aggressive form of cancer that primarily affects the lining of the lungs, abdomen, and heart.
Asbestosis: A chronic lung condition characterized by scarring of lung tissue, which can cause shortness of breath, coughing, and chest pain.
Lung cancer: Exposure to asbestos increases the risk of developing lung cancer, particularly in smokers.
Other cancers: Asbestos exposure has also been linked to cancers of the larynx, ovaries, and gastrointestinal tract.
