What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a heat-resistant mineral fiber once widely used in building construction materials for insulation, as a fire retardant, and for many other purposes. Asbestos can harm people when asbestos-containing materials are disturbed, releasing tiny fibers into the air. When people breathe in the fibers, they can develop diseases like asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.
