History of Asbestos
Asbestos started getting popular with builders and manufacturers in the 19th century. What they liked was the strength, resistance to fire, sound absorption and more importantly, the low cost.
The most common types of asbestos are chrysotile (white asbestos), amosite (gray or brown asbestos), and crocidolite (blue asbestos). Other more uncommon asbestos forms include tremolite and actinolite.
All of the forms of asbestos are hazardous to our health.
The prolonged inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause serious illnesses including lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis.
