Why The Dramatics?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral composed of flexible fibers that are resistant to heat, electricity and corrosion. These qualities make the mineral useful, but they also make it highly toxic. Asbestos was widely used in construction as an effective insulator, and it can be added to cloth, paper, cement, plastic and other materials to make them stronger.
When asbestos is disrupted during demolition, these tiny fibres are released into the air. If inhaled, can cause life-threatening lung diseases such as cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma.
