Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that was commonly used as fire-proof insulation for buildings or other structures. In recent years, most uses of asbestos were made illegal in the United States due to evidence showing that exposure to asbestos can cause cancer. Breathing in asbestos fibers can damage the lungs and lead to the lung cancer called “mesothelioma”. Even though federal regulations now govern the use of asbestos for the sake of public health, hundreds of workers in our country are still exposed to this deadly substance in the workplace. Some individuals may even be exposed in their own homes, due to living in a place that was originally constructed with asbestos.
