Asbestos-containing products were used in the building and construction of office buildings, industrial parks, plants, factories, refineries, mills, and shipyards. U. S workers were exposed to toxic asbestos products on a daily basis in their workplace. Asbestos was used in walls, ceilings, flooring, wiring, drywall, paints, metals, glues, pipes and heating systems.
Asbestos fibers are very tiny as small as .03 microns. The human eye can see particles to about 40 microns. These microscopic particles are very dangerous and when inhaled or ingested and can lay dormant in a human body for 10-50 years. These asbestos particles can weaken the human immune system and may lead to malignant Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers. The average age for a person diagnosed with Mesothelioma is 69.
