WHY ASBESTOS IS DANGEROUS
Asbestos is friable so if it is disturbed microscopic asbestos fibres are released into the air that can then be easily inhaled into our lungs. Once fibres are in our lungs they remain and over time, diseases can develop.
Even a small level of asbestos exposure increases the chance of developing an asbestos-related disease.
