Asbestos threat – is this still a thing?
Lung cancer, asbestosis, asthma, serious illnesses of the respiratory tract – that is just a short list of the ailments which people exposed to asbestos may suffer from. The fact that the list goes on and on is really compelling but no more than the fact that there are still thousands of buildings all over the UK which have not had its asbestos components removed. And, in fairness, time does not reduce the risk of contracting either of the illnesses described above. It is actually quite the contrary – every year there the chances that this material is going to wreak havoc grow exponentially.
Why should I be concerned?
The major reason for concern is the fact that asbestos dilapidates over time and once it becomes friable and crumbled, the toxic dust is released into the air. Obviously, it then is breathed by people who are exposed to these invisible fibres and the consequences of inhaling them are really dire and sometimes even life-threatening. The most important aspect of such exposure is that people who were in contact with asbestos may not necessarily develop any symptoms right after the release – sometimes it can even take years for the pernicious effects to manifest at which point it is sometimes difficult to fight these types of ailments.
