The Burnt Asbestos Problem

It is widely understood that asbestos can create a very serious health risk for humans. Scientists have researched the effects of asbestos for decades to understand the issues.

Asbestos is a fibrous material. The fibres when released can be inhaled and will adhere to the cells in the lungs. The asbestos fibres are virtually impossible to remove from the lining of the lung. When the fibres remain in the lungs the can and will cause a multitude of lung diseases and over time the effects will be fatal. When materials such as any type of asbestos burn, the structure if the product degrades and the minute fibres are released and will float – these burnt fibres are easily inhaled. For burnt asbestos the dangerous fibres floating alongside ash from a burn site which can be inhaled and will cause lung disease and other health problems. Many of these diseases will result in death.
