Many people have heard that asbestos is a dangerous substance to be avoided. But did you know that there are two groups that asbestos fibers belong to?
It should be recognized that all forms of asbestos are considered to be hazardous to human health. In total, there are six types of asbestos fibers, all of which are too small to be seen by the human eye. They are smaller than a strand of human hair and can get caught within the lungs if inhaled. Once trapped in the lungs, deadly asbestos-related diseases can develop, affecting a person's respiratory system and eventually leading to death.
