How do airborne asbestos fibers enter the body?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral. It can break down to fibers that are so small that you cannot see them. If asbestos fibers are in the air you breathe, you will get asbestos fibers in your lungs and body.
This is the primary way that people are exposed to asbestos.
Asbestos fibers may remain in the lungs for a lifetime. In some cases, the fibers might damage the lungs or the lining of the lungs, leading to illness and even death.
Many people have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
