How Asbestos Exposure Works
The pathway through which asbestos impairs our health is simple: microscopic
slivers of the material, often just microns long, become embedded in the
lungs. These small strands irritate the lungs, causing the tissue to grow
abnormally. Over time, scar tissue can develop, creating a major breathing
difficulty called asbestosis. Still worse, many develop a condition more
commonly associated with smoking:
mesothelioma, a form of cancer. The prognosis is not good for either condition, and
treatment can be intrusive, meaning you may be facing significant medical
bills and lost wages in the years ahead.
