When is Asbestos Dangerous?
Because it is so hard to destroy asbestos fibers, the body cannot break them down or remove them once they are lodged in lung or body tissues. They remain in place where they can cause disease.
There are three primary diseases associated with asbestos exposure:
Asbestosis is a serious, chronic, non-cancerous respiratory disease. Inhaled asbestos fibers aggravate lung tissues, which cause them to
scar. Symptoms of asbestosis include shortness of breath and a dry crackling sound in the lungs while inhaling. In its advanced stages, the disease may cause cardiac failure
There is no effective treatment for asbestosis; the disease is usually disabling or fatal. The risk of asbestosis is minimal for those who do not work with asbestos; the disease is rarely caused by neighborhood or family exposure. Those who renovate or demolish buildings that contain asbestos may be at significant risk, depending on the nature of the exposure and precautions taken.
Lung cancer causes the largest number of deaths related to asbestos exposure. The incidence of lung cancer in people who are
directly involved in the mining, milling, manufacturing and use of asbestos and its products is much higher than in the general population.
The most common symptoms of lung cancer are coughing and a change in breathing. Other symptoms include shortness of breath, persistent chest pains, hoarseness, and anemia.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that most often occurs in the thin membrane lining of the lungs, chest, abdomen, and (rarely) heart.
Evidence suggests that cancers in the esophagus, larynx, oral cavity, stomach, colon and kidney may be caused by ingesting asbestos. For more information on asbestos-related cancers, contact your local chapter of the American Cancer Society.
Three things seem to determine your likelihood of developing one of these asbestos related diseases:
- The amount and duration of exposure – the more you are exposed to asbestos and the more fibers that enter your body, the more likely you are to develop asbestos related problems. While there is no “safe level” of asbestos exposure, people who are exposed more frequently over a long period of time are more at risk.
- Whether or not you smoke – if you smoke and you have been exposed to asbestos, you are far more likely to develop lung cancer than someone who does not smoke and who has not been exposed to asbestos. If you work with asbestos or have been exposed to it, the first thing you should do to reduce your chances of developing cancer is to stop smoking.
- Age – cases of mesothelioma have occurred in the children of asbestos workers whose only exposures were from the dust brought home on the clothing of family members who worked with asbestos. The younger people are when they inhale asbestos, the more likely they are to develop mesothelioma. This is why enormous efforts are being made to prevent school children from being exposed.
Because each exposure to asbestos increases the body burden of asbestos fibers, it is very important to reduce and minimize your exposure.

What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a highly heat-resistant fibrous silicate mineral that was mostly used in building materials in the mid-80s. Most Australian homes constructed have Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) used in the building process. ACMs were highly resistant to heat, water, and erosion. However, the Australian government banned the use of ACMs on 31st December 2003. Houses built or renovated before 1990 are likely to have asbestos in their building structure. Asbestos is mostly referred to by its colours.
Non Friable Asbestos
Non-friable asbestos is Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) that cannot be crushed, crumbled, pulverised or turned into powder by human force. Compared to friable asbestos, non-friable asbestos is relatively safe. However, if handled improperly, bonded asbestos are still hazardous. Some common examples of non-friable asbestos are fibro sheeting (flat and corrugated), asbestos cement, AC sheeting, roof shingles, water and drainage, floor tiles, vinyl flooring, electricity and gas meter boxes.

- Blue asbestos (crocidolite)
