Asbestosis


What is Asbestosis?

What is Asbestosis?

Asbestosis is caused by repeated or prolonged exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous mineral. It is frequently found in insulation materials and as part of construction materials. Before the 1970’s, asbestos was the building material of choice because it was strong and very heat resistant.
