April 2, 2010 – Asbestosis is a lung disease primarily caused by work-site asbestos exposure via inhalation of airborne
asbestos fibers. Symptoms of asbestosis are diagnosed when the fibers begin to
impede breathing and affect the proper functioning of the lungs.
One of the first signs of asbestosis is when breathing becomes difficult
during physical exertion, not unlike the symptoms asthma patients

under proper medical supervision and proven asbestosis treatments.
