A type of TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY in which the object is examined directly by an extremely narrow electron beam scanning the specimen point-by-point and using the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen to create the image. It should not be confused with SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY.
Relating to the size of solids.
Microscopy using an electron beam, instead of light, to visualize the sample, thereby allowing much greater magnification. The interactions of ELECTRONS with specimens are used to provide information about the fine structure of that specimen.

A risk assessment for exposure to grunerite asbestos (amosite) in an iron ore mine. (1/189)

The potential for health risks to humans exposed to the asbestos minerals continues to be a public health concern. Although the production and use of the commercial amphibole asbestos minerals-grunerite (amosite) and riebeckite (crocidolite)-have been almost completely eliminated from world commerce, special opportunities for potentially significant exposures remain. Commercially viable deposits of grunerite asbestos are very rare, but it can occur as a gangue mineral in a limited part of a mine otherwise thought asbestos-free. This report describes such a situation, in which a very localized seam of grunerite asbestos was identified in an iron ore mine. The geological occurrence of the seam in the ore body is described, as well as the mineralogical character of the grunerite asbestos. The most relevant epidemiological studies of workers exposed to grunerite asbestos are used to gauge the hazards associated with the inhalation of this fibrous mineral. Both analytical transmission electron microscopy and phase-contrast optical microscopy were used to quantify the fibers present in the air during mining in the area with outcroppings of grunerite asbestos. Analytical transmission electron microscopy and continuous-scan x-ray diffraction were used to determine the type of asbestos fiber present. Knowing the level of the miner's exposures, we carried out a risk assessment by using a model developed for the Environmental Protection Agency.  (+info)

Asbestos induces activator protein-1 transactivation in transgenic mice. (2/189)

Activation of activator protein (AP-1) by crocidolite asbestos was examined in vitro in a JB6 P+ cell line stably transfected with AP-1-luciferase reporter plasmid and in vivo using AP-1-luciferase reporter transgenic mice. In in vitro studies, crocidolite asbestos caused a dose- and time-dependent induction of AP-1 activation in cultured JB6 cells. The elevated AP-1 activity persisted for at least 48 h. Crocidolite asbestos also induced AP-1 transactivation in the pulmonary and bronchial tissues of transgenic mice. AP-1 activation was observed at 2 days after intratracheal instillation of the mice with asbestos. At 3 days postexposure, AP-1 activation was elevated 10-fold in the lung tissue and 22-fold in bronchiolar tissue as compared with their controls. The induction of AP-1 activity by asbestos appeared to be mediated through the activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase family members, including extracellular signal-regulating protein kinase, Erk1 and Erk2. Aspirin inhibited asbestos-induced AP-1 activity in JB6 cells. Pretreatment of the mice with aspirin also inhibited asbestos-induced AP-1 activation in bronchiolar tissue. The data suggest that further investigation of the role of AP-1 activation in asbestos-induced cell proliferation and carcinogenesis is warranted. In addition, investigation of the potential therapeutic benefits of aspirin in the prevention/amelioration of asbestos-induced cancer is justified.  (+info)

Asbestos exposure upregulates the adhesion of pleural leukocytes to pleural mesothelial cells via VCAM-1. (3/189)

This study was designed to assess the effects of in vitro and in vivo asbestos exposure on the adhesion of rat pleural leukocytes (RPLs) labeled with the fluorochrome calcein AM to rat pleural mesothelial cells (RPMCs). Exposure of RPMCs for 24 h to either crocidolite or chrysotile fibers (1.25-10 microgram/cm(2)) increased the adhesion of RPLs to RPMCs in a dose-dependent fashion, an effect that was potentiated by interleukin-1beta. These findings were not observed with nonfibrogenic carbonyl iron particles. Crocidolite and chrysotile plus interleukin-1beta also upregulated vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 mRNA and protein expression in RPMCs, and the binding of RPL to asbestos-treated RPMCs was abrogated by anti-vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 antibody. PRLs exposed by intermittent inhalation to crocidolite for 2 wk manifested significantly greater binding to RPMCs than did RPLs from sham-exposed animals. The ability of asbestos fibers to upregulate RPL adhesion to RPMCs may play a role in the induction and/or potentiation of asbestos-induced pleural injury.  (+info)

Asbestos-induced phosphorylation of epidermal growth factor receptor is linked to c-fos and apoptosis. (4/189)

We examined the mechanisms of interaction of crocidolite asbestos fibers with the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor (EGFR) and the role of the EGFR-extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) signaling pathway in early-response protooncogene (c-fos/c-jun) expression and apoptosis induced by asbestos in rat pleural mesothelial (RPM) cells. Asbestos fibers, but not the nonfibrous analog riebeckite, abolished binding of EGF to the EGFR. This was not due to a direct interaction of fibers with ligand, inasmuch as binding studies using fibers and EGF in the absence of membranes showed that EGF did not adsorb to the surface of asbestos fibers. Exposure of RPM cells to asbestos caused a greater than twofold increase in steady-state message and protein levels of EGFR (P < 0.05). The tyrphostin AG-1478, which inhibits the tyrosine kinase activity of the EGFR, but not the tyrphostin A-10, which does not affect EGFR activity, significantly ameliorated asbestos-induced increases in mRNA levels of c-fos but not of c-jun. Pretreatment of RPM cells with AG-1478 significantly reduced apoptosis in cells exposed to asbestos. Our findings suggest that asbestos-induced binding to EGFR initiates signaling pathways responsible for increased expression of the protooncogene c-fos and the development of apoptosis. The ability to block asbestos-induced elevations in c-fos mRNA levels and apoptosis by small-molecule inhibitors of EGFR phosphorylation may have therapeutic implications in asbestos-related diseases.  (+info)

Role of oxyradicals in mutagenicity and DNA damage induced by crocidolite asbestos in mammalian cells. (5/189)

Crocidolite, one of the most carcinogenic forms of asbestos, is mutagenic in cultured mammalian cells when assayed using a system that can detect multilocus deletions. In the present study, we examined the effect of buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) on mutation frequency and the formation of 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) in human-hamster hybrid (A(L)) cells induced by crocidolite fibers in an attempt to determine the role of oxyradicals in mediating fiber mutagenesis. BSO, a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme gamma-glutamyl cysteine synthetase, depleted nonprotein sulfhydryls to <5% of control within 24 h at a nonmutagenic dose of 25 microM. In cells pretreated with BSO for 24 h, the mutation yield at the CD59 locus induced by a 4 microg/cm2 dose of crocidolite fibers was increased by more than 3-fold (P < 0.05). Using immunoperoxidase staining with a monoclonal antibody specific for 8-OHdG, we demonstrated that crocidolite fibers induced a dose-dependent increase in oxidative DNA damage in A(L) cells. Furthermore, addition of DMSO, a well-established hydroxyl radical (OH*) scavenger, dramatically suppressed 8-OHdG induction (P < 0.005). Our results definitely demonstrate that reactive oxygen species mediate fiber-induced DNA damage mutagenesis in A(L) cells in a concentration-dependent manner.  (+info)

Dielectric changes in membrane properties and cell interiors of human mesothelial cells in vitro after crocidolite asbestos exposure. (6/189)

Asbestos induces cytogenetic and genotoxic effects in cultured cell lines in vitro. For further investigations of the fiber-induced cellular changes, electrorotation (ROT) measurements can be used to determine early changes of surface properties and dielectric cellular changes. In the present study, human mesothelial cells (HMC) were exposed to nontoxic concentrations of crocidolite asbestos (1 microg/cm(2)) for 12, 24, 30, 50, and 72 hr, and were investigated for changes in dielectric properties, morphologic and biochemical changes using ROT measurements, electron microscopy, and flow cytometry, respectively. The results of ROT measurements revealed slightly increased internal conductivity and decreased membrane conductance of HMC during the first 12 hr of exposure to crocidolite. This may be due to functional changes of ion channels of the cellular membrane. However, after exposures of >= 30 hr, reduced internal conductivity and increased membrane conductance of HMC occurred. These effects may be caused by permeabilization of the cell membrane and the leakage of ions into the surrounding medium. The membrane capacitance of HMC is always decreased during exposure of cells to crocidolite fibers. This decreased membrane capacitance may result from the observed reduction in the number of microvilli and from the shrinkage of cells as observed by electron microscopy and flow cytometry. Changes in composition of the plasma membrane were also observed after the labeling of phosphatidylserines (PS) on the cell surface. These observed changes can be related to apoptotic events. Whereas during the first 50 hr of exposure only a small number of HMC with increased exposure of PS on the cell surface was detected by flow cytometry, the dielectric properties of HMC showed marked changes during this time. Our results show that surface property changes of the cellular membrane of HMC as well as interior dielectric changes occur after the exposure of cells to crocidolite fibers. The observed changes are discussed in terms of complex combined cellular effects after amphibole asbestos exposure.  (+info)

Mesothelial cell apoptosis is confirmed in vivo by morphological change in cytokeratin distribution. (7/189)

Apoptosis of mesothelial cells has been demonstrated in vitro but not in vivo. To identify apoptotic pleural cells as mesothelial, we used cytokeratin as a marker and found a striking spheroid, aggregated appearance of cytokeratin in apparently apoptotic mesothelial cells. In in vitro studies, we found that the aggregated cytokeratin pattern correlated with apoptosis in primary mesothelial cells from mice, rabbits, and humans and was not seen with necrosis. In in vivo studies in mice, we then used this cytokeratin pattern to identify and quantitate apoptotic mesothelial cells. Apoptotic mesothelial cells were best harvested by pleural lavage, indicating that they were loosely adherent or nonadherent. Instillation of RPMI 1640 medium or wollastonite for 24 h induced apoptosis in 0.1 +/- 0. 1 (SE) and 1.0 +/- 0.7%, respectively, of all mesothelial cells recovered, whereas instillation of known apoptotic stimuli, crocidolite asbestos (25 microg) for 24 h or actinomycin D plus murine tumor necrosis factor-alpha for 12 h, induced apoptosis in 5. 1 +/- 0.5 and 22.4 +/- 4.5%, respectively (significantly greater than in control experiments, P < 0.05). By analysis of cytokeratin staining, mesothelial cell apoptosis has been confirmed in vivo.  (+info)

Inhaled crocidolite mutagenicity in lung DNA. (8/189)

We used transgenic mice carrying the lacI reporter gene to study the mutagenesis potential of asbestos crocidolite. The animals were exposed by nose-only inhalation to an aerosol containing 5.75 mg/m(3) crocidolite dust for 6 hr/day and 5 consecutive days. After 1, 4, and 12 weeks, we examined four end points: the cytology of bronchoalveolar lavage, the lung load of crocidolite, the hydrophobic DNA adducts, and the mutations in the lacI reporter gene. Twelve weeks after exposure, nearly 10% of the inhaled fibers remained in the lung (227 +/- 103 ng/mg lung). There was evidence of a typical inflammatory response consisting of multinucleate macrophages at weeks 4 and 12, whereas immediately after the exposure, we observed numerous polymorphonuclear neutrophils. The mutant frequency significatively increased during the fourth week after the exposure: 13.5 [time] 10(-5) in the exposed group versus 6. 9 10(-5) in the control group. The induction factor, defined by the ratio of checked mutants of exposed mice to checked mutants of control mice, was 1.96. The mutation spectrum of control lung DNA and exposed lung DNA was similar, suggesting the possible involvement of a DNA repair decrease in crocidolite-treated animals. We used the (32)P-postlabeling method and did not detect any increase of either 5 mC or bulky adduct in treated mice. This is the first study that demonstrates asbestos mutagenicity in vivo after a nose-only inhalation.  (+info)

Author: D.M. Bernstein, R.A. Rogers, R. Sepulveda, P. Kunzendorf, B. Bellmann, H. Ernst, O. Creutzenberg, J.I. Phillips. Source: Toxicology And Applied Pharmacology. 2015. Summary:. Abstract. This study was designed to provide an understanding of the biokinetics and potential toxicology in the lung and pleura following inhalation of brake dust following short term exposure in rats. The deposition, translocation and pathological response of brake-dust derived from brake pads manufactured with chrysotile were evaluated in comparison to the amphibole, crocidolite asbestos. Rats were exposed by inhalation 6h/day for 5days to either brake-dust obtained by sanding of brake-drums manufactured with chrysotile, a mixture of chrysotile and the brake-dust or crocidolite asbestos. The chrysotile fibers were relatively biosoluble whereas the crocidolite asbestos fibers persisted through the life-time of the animal. This was reflected in the lung and the pleura where no significant pathological response was ...
Owing to the high rates of malignant mesothelioma in workers exposed to crocidolite earlier at Wittenoom and evidence of protection against cancer by vitamin A, a population-based cancer prevention programme providing retinol supplements (25,000 IU/day) was commenced in 1990. The former workers at Wittenoom known to be alive and living in Western Australia in June 1990 constitute the study population. The participants were classified into two groups: those who received supplemental retinol (intervention group) and those who received none (comparison group). The relative rate of mesothelioma for those receiving retinol was estimated using Cox regression, adjusting for cumulative asbestos exposure and age at first exposure to asbestos. Nine hundred and twenty-eight former Wittenoom workers received retinol at some stage of the programme, whereas 1471 workers never received retinol (comparison group). Those who received retinol were younger, had a greater exposure to asbestos and smoked less than ...
The impact of crocidolite exposure on the health of former Wittenoom miners and millers (largely male) has been well documented. Less is known about the health outcomes of the 2,968 women and girls who lived (N = 2,552) and worked (N = 416) in the blue asbestos milling and mining town of Wittenoom between 1943 and 1992. Quantitative exposure measurements were derived from dust studies undertaken over the lifetime of the mine and mill and the township. Incident cancers were obtained from the Western Australian (WA) Cancer Registry and the National Cancer Clearing House. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRS) compared Wittenoom females with the WA female population. Exposure-response relationships were examined using a matched case-control study design. There were (47) mesothelioma and (55) lung cancer cases among the 437 cancers in the Wittenoom females over the period 1960-2005. When compared to the WA female population, Wittenoom women and girls had higher rates of mesothelioma and possibly lung ...

Every day estimated 30 deaths in India is under way due to the ongoing trade and use of white asbestos. Asbestos in Greek means indestructible. Greeks called asbestos the magic mineral. Asbestos is a generic term, referring usually to six kinds of naturally occuring mineral fibres. Of these six, three are used more commonly. Chrysotile is the most common, accounts for almost 90 per cent of the asbestos used in the industry, but it is not unusual to encounter Amosite or Crocidolite as well. Though Crocidolite asbestos is banned in India, it can still be found in old insulation material, old ships that come from other countries for wrecking in India. All types of asbestos tend to break into very tiny fibre, almost microscopic. In fact, some of them may be up to 700 times smaller than human hair. Because of their small size, once released into the air, they may stay suspended in the air for hours or even days. Asbestos fibres are virtually indestructible. They are resistant to chemicals and ...

The inhalation of asbestos is a risk factor for the development of malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. Based on the broad surface area of asbestos fibers and their ability to enter the cytoplasm and nuclei of cells, it was hypothesized that proteins that adsorb onto the fiber surface play a role in the cytotoxicity and carcinogenesis of asbestos fibers. However, little is known about which proteins adsorb onto asbestos. Previously, we systematically identified asbestos-interacting proteins and classified them into eight sub-categories: chromatin/nucleotide/RNA-binding proteins, ribosomal proteins, cytoprotective proteins, cytoskeleton-associated proteins, histones and hemoglobin. Here, we report an adsorption profile of proteins for the three commercially used asbestos compounds: chrysotile, crocidolite and amosite. We quantified the amounts of adsorbed proteins by analyzing the silver-stained gels of sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis with ImageJ software, using the ...

The work involved an evaluation of the usefulness of epoxy and polyimide in asbestos paper or asbestos mat reinforced laminates. Initially, a crocidolite asbestos mat laminated with a polyimide resin was considered a good candidate, but process optimization studies failed to raise flexural strengths above the 20,000-30,000 psi level. The problem appeared to be one of inadequate wetting of the asbestos fibers, in combination with the excessive volatiles now inherent in the polyimide system itself. Fundamental studies later pointed out the asbestos fibers are very sensitive to buckling, and that voids in the resin matrix cannot be tolerated. Hydroclaving at 30,000 psi was also used in an attempt to alleviate this problem. Eventually, however, it was found that dilute methyl ethyl ketone solutions of epoxy resins - which do not develop volatiles and the consequent voids - provided the best impregnation. Crocidolite and epoxy composites were optimized at about 25 weight percent resin, 2.4 g/cc specific
The use of asbestos or exposure to asbestos has been increasing in economically developing China as the construction industry has been booming with dizzying speed. As in many other countries, the asbestos used for insulation in the industry was primarily chrysotile in China, but the extent to which other forms of asbestos were used in a vast country like China remains to be explored. In a comprehensive nationwide survey of pneumoconiosis data published in 1992, asbestosis among the Chinese has shown a stepwise increase in the past 30 years.12 By the late 1980s, there were more than 4000 cases per year reported officially from occupational settings such as textile workers. However, as for environmental (non-occupational) asbestos exposure or the use of crocidolite fibres in China, both had been rare and few had been reported in the literature outside China.. Asbestos has been classified by the International Agency Research on Cancer (IARC) as a group I carcinogen: known human carcinogen.13 Lung ...

Asbestos-induced mutagenicity in the lung may involve reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) released by alveolar macrophages. With the aim of proposing an alternative in vitro mutagenesis test, a coculture system of rat alveolar macrophages (NR8383) and transgenic Big Blue Rat2 embryonic fibroblasts was developed and tested with a crocidolite sample. Crocidolite exposure induced no detectable increase in ROS production from NR8383, contrasting with the oxidative burst that occurred following a brief exposure (1 hour) to zymosan, a known macrophage activator. In separated cocultures, crocidolite and zymosan induced different changes in the gene expressions involved in cellular inflammation in NR8383 and Big Blue. In particular, both particles induced up-regulation of iNOS expression in Big Blue, suggesting the formation of potentially genotoxic nitrogen species. However, crocidolite exposure in separated or mixed cocultures induced no mutagenic effects whereas an increase in Big Blue mutants was
A case of possible asbestos contamination at a storage facility in Michigan has left some customers in limbo while abatement consultants assess the full extent of the problem. The presence of asbestos at the site was confirmed earlier this month at Second Street Storage in K.I. Sawyer, a former military base in Northern Michigan. As reported in The Mining Journal, the asbestos was discovered by the buildings owners, the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, when they inspected the property after the tenant fell into arrears on rental payments and taxes. On inspection, tribal officials discovered a piece of pipe-fitting tape thought to contain asbestos on the floor of one of the buildings at the site. The presence of the toxic material was confirmed through testing, according to The Mining Journal. The facility was built in 1956 and used as hangars by the U.S. Air Force, which owned the property until 1995. Asbestos was widely used in building materials in the 1950s as builders took ...
Asbestos is a mineral that naturally forms in crystalline fibers. Because of its durable and fire-retardant properties, asbestos is widely used in many industrial applications. Unfortunately, asbestos is a dangerous material to work around. Individual asbestos fibers are thin and light - able to float in the air. Without adequate protection, workers can easily inhale these asbestos fibers. Sometimes the family of such a worker may even be exposed to asbestos from the fibers brought home on work clothes.. Tiny asbestos fibers work their way down into the lungs, where they pierce the tissue. Sometimes asbestos exposure causes significant scarring of the lungs, called asbestosis. There are many harmful effects associated with asbestosis. In some individuals, the asbestos fibers slowly work their way through the lung tissue and into the mesothelium, a layer of cells that surrounds and lungs and abdominal cavity. This lining becomes irritated by the crystalline asbestos fibers, which may eventually ...
Asbestos diseases are caused by inhaled asbestos fibres passing through the respiratory system into the lungs. Due to their size and shape they become trapped in the lungs which over time causes irritation, inflammation and scarring to the lungs. This process might take up to 50 years or longer after initial exposure and reduces the efficiency of the lungs which can impact upon mobility and general health. All asbestos fibres are potentially harmful albeit blue asbestos (crocidolite) is considered to be the most harmful followed by brown asbestos (amosite) and then white asbestos (chrysotile). However, not everyone who has inhaled asbestos fibres will go on to develop an asbestos-related illness. Despite encountering workplace exposure to asbestos dust, in the absence of a clear diagnosis, it will not be possible to recover compensation from a former employer. Have you worked directly with asbestos, old or new material or have you worked in close proximity to somebody who was? The risk of ...

We recently secured £85,000 for a client who sadly developed the cancer mesothelioma in her right chest several decades following significant exposure to asbestos at work for the then General Post Office.. Working as a telephonist from the early 1950s to 1970, her employer was at the time providing both a postal service and telecommunications before the GPO was abolished in 1969 to eventually become BT and Royal Mail.. Work was carried out in her work premises which involved cabling and the extensive creation of asbestos dust as the material used was drilled and asbestos cement mixed. Working in a confined space with no ventilation nor protective equipment, inhaling significant quantities of asbestos dust was unavoidable.. She enjoyed relatively good health until her late 70s when she started experiencing breathlessness. A visit to her doctor and further medical investigations sadly resulted in a diagnosis of mesothelioma of her right chest. She made the decision to pursue her previous ...
Among these various types, chrysolite is the most popular variant of asbestos and it is extensively used in making roofs, walls and ceilings. It is also used in the brake linings of automobile, insulation of pipes, boiler seats and gaskets. The second type of asbestos is amosite and it primarily originates from Africa. This type is widely used in insulating pipes, insulating thermal products and making cement sheets and ceiling tiles. The third type of asbestos is crocidolite and it is also widely popular as the blue asbestos. This type does not have much heat resistance and is primarily used for insulating steam engines. At times, it is also used for insulating pipes and making cement items. The fourth type of asbestos is chrysolite and it is not extensively used for most commercial purposes. This is usually observed as a contaminant is insulation items that contain asbestos. Anthophylite is the fifth type of asbestos and it is usually mined in Finaland. This asbestos comes with a grayish-brown ...
For people handling asbestos textile cloths and even those in close proximity with the products, the consequences could be great… and deadly.. Looking at asbestos containing products wont make people blind, but inhaling its fibers frequently could really pose some severe problems health-wise. The greater the amount of fibers inhaled the more frequent and severe the health problem can get.. Once a person inhales asbestos dust, the larger asbestos fibers are usually filtered by the lungs and upper respiratory tract. The smaller asbestos fibers usually escape the bodys protective mechanism and get stored in the lungs. Asbestos fiber can also penetrate deeper into the persons body. The penetration of asbestos fibers and their deposit inside a persons body may cause Asbestosis. Asbestosis is the scarring of a persons lung tissue and may lead to disability and/or death. Symptoms of this disease are often severe cough, constant shortness of breath and constant chest pains.. Other diseases ...

People who are diagnosed with the most common form of asbestos-related lung disease are not at an increased risk of developing lung cancer later in life, a new study led by Curtin University has found.. The research, published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, examined the relationship between asbestos-related pleural plaques and an increased risk of lung cancer in more than 4,200 Australians exposed to asbestos from mixed occupations, mostly tradesmen, and the Wittenoom crocidolite mine and township in the Pilbara, Western Australia.. Lead author Professor Fraser Brims, from the Curtin Medical School and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth, said the relationship between asbestos-related pleural plaques and the risk of lung cancer was not well understood.. There have been suggestions that the presence of pleural plaque should act as a biomarker for lung cancer risk and therefore could be part of the eligibility criteria for early lung cancer detection ...
For over 40 forty years, asbestos litigation has been a part of the American judicial landscape. Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that has been used in building materials for many years, often for insulation. While nearly everyone in the United States has been exposed to asbestos at some time, many people who were exposed to asbestos over a long period of time have become ill. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, malignant pleural mesothelioma, a type of cancer that affects the inside lining of the chest cavity, is associated with asbestos exposure. Other effects of asbestos exposure can be a lung disease called asbestosis, build-up of scar tissue in the lung, pulmonary hypertension, and compromised immunity. It is estimated that more than 200,000 asbestos claims are pending in the U.S. courts. Over $70 billion has been spent in paying claims, attorney fees and other costs associated with asbestos claims, with remaining costs expected to reach up to $250 billion. ...
Asbestos fibres are 50 to 200 times thinner than human hair, making it practically invisible to the naked eye. Once disturbed, asbestos can linger in the air for very long periods, and has been found to cause a number of health risks through inhalation.. Asbestos testing is extremely important if youre purchasing a new commercial property (and it was built before 1990), especially if you want to renovate.. Our inspectors are qualified to perform asbestos inspections throughout Queensland, with asbestos testing and extensive reports provided. This report will include a Certificate of Analysis so you can be 100% confident the results found are accurate, along with an asbestos management plan if asbestos is discovered.. Make sure youre not at risk - contact us for a commercial asbestos test today.. ...
Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring silicate materials that come from metamorphic rocks. Asbestos occurs in large deposits naturally on every continent. The name Asbestos comes from the Greek word which means unquenchable or inextinguishable, as the material is very strong and resistant to chemicals, fire, and water. It also doesnt biodegrade, decompose or dissolve in water.. Because of its resilient qualities, asbestos has been used in thousands of different products and building materials throughout the centuries. The use of asbestos has been common in the industrialised world since the mid to late-19th century. However, it was not until the 20th century that asbestos was widely used in domestic and commercial buildings throughout the UK. Following previous bans of asbestos types in the UK (e.g. amosite and crocidolite in 1985), it wasnt until 1999 that its use was completely banned in the UK. Unfortunately, by this point, asbestos had already been used in most aspects of ...
The origin of the myofibroblast in fibrotic lung disease is uncertain, and no effective medical therapy for fibrosis exists. We have previously demonstrated that transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) induces pleural mesothelial cell (PMC) transformation into myofibroblasts and haptotactic migration in vitro. Whether PMC differentiation and migration occurs in vivo, and whether this response can be modulated for therapeutic benefit, is unknown. Here, using mice recombinant for green fluorescent protein (GFP) driven by the Wilms tumor-1 (WT-1) promoter, we demonstrate PMC trafficking into the lung and differentiation into myofibroblasts. Carbon monoxide or the induction of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) inhibited the expression of myofibroblast markers, contractility, and haptotaxis in PMCs treated with TGF-β1. Intrapleural HO-1 induction inhibited PMC migration after intratracheal fibrogenic injury. PMCs from patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) exhibited increased expression of ...
Westminster Magistrates Court heard how, in February 2018, Protostar Construction Ltd (PCL) commissioned an asbestos survey which identified a significant amount of asbestos at the site and provided detailed instructions on how it should be dealt with. PCL invited the survey company to attend site to quote for the asbestos removal and when the surveyor arrived, they discovered that PCL, and not a licensed asbestos removal company, had removed the asbestos themselves - putting all those who visited the site at risk.. An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found the company had removed a significant amount of asbestos whilst refurbishing a house without taking the necessary precautions to prevent its spread. The uncontrolled removal put at risk all persons who visited the site as well as the persons working on the site.. Protostar Construction Limited of Crawford Street, London pleaded guilty to breaching Regulation 11(1) of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and has been ...

Asbestos is the general name for a family of mineral products. These minerals are fibrous silicates that grow in crystalline structures that resemble a chain; at the level of the naked eye, these chains look like fibers or threads. The fibers are flexible and strong, and each fiber can be split into smaller fibers almost indefinitely. Asbestos fibers are waterproof and fireproof; they resist corrosion and electricity, and they have the tensile strength of metal wire. Asbestos is a truly remarkable substance.. It is also an incredibly deadly one. The ability of asbestos fibers to split into smaller and smaller strands allows asbestos fibers to enter the human body through the lungs and literally slide into and between the cells of soft tissues. The fibers near-indestructibility means that the body cannot break it down the way it breaks down other toxins or poisons - instead the body encysts the fibers to protect itself. This would not be a problem if a few fibers entered the lungs; our bodies ...
News media often run articles on the risks of exposure to asbestos from DIY renovators. These articles highlight the often unknown risks people are taking by either doing their own asbestos removal or are simply being unaware of the health related issues when performing demolition and renovations in their residence.. People in NSW need to be made aware of these risks and should contact a professional to do an inspection and possible removal of the asbestos if found. By choosing to DIY you are taking risks of developing long term serious health issues such as mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer of the lungs and abdomen. There is no cure for this disease and it is most often terminal..

We can blame industry and American business for not being mindful of the health of their workers, when it was well known that the exposure to airborne asbestos fibers would result in serious lung diseases. The business community conveniently chose not to regard the danger in favor of using these asbestos for the business profits is one of the dark stories of the development of business and industry in this country. It was a matter of shame that the government turned blind eye to an increasing public health crises until the matter of new asbestos related lung diseases cases became so compelling that action was needed at governmental level ...
Its considered the most contaminated site in the southern hemisphere and one of the most toxic in the world, but for some reason tourists just cant stay away from the abandoned mining town of Wittenoom, deep in Western Australias remote Pilbara region.. In its heyday, between 1930 and 1966, Wittenoom was home to around 20,000 people, most of whom worked in the now abandoned nearby mines, extracting deadly asbestos every day. Today, its a ghost town surrounded by large Danger signs designed to keep people as far away as possible. Even though asbestos mining ceased decades ago, Wittenoom is still surrounded by around three million tonnes of asbestos residue, enough to make the air there potentially deadly. The place is so dangerous that last year the Australian government decided to compulsorily acquire the properties of the last three people living in the area, just to get them to safety. And yet, there are thousands of tourists visiting Wittenoom every year and proudly posting photos of it ...
This article deals with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 which came into force on 13 November 2006. For the later regulations that came into force on 6th April 2012, see Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 came into force in the United Kingdom on 13 November 2006 and brought together a number of other asbestos related pieces of legislation. The pieces of legislation the regulations revoked and replaced were the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2002, the Asbestos (Licensing) Regulations 1983 and the Asbestos (Prohibitions) Regulations 1992. Key elements of the regulations include a greater emphasis on training requiring anyone who may come into contact with Asbestos in the course of their work to be given suitable training. Greater restrictions were also placed on the amount of exposure workers could be exposed to in the form of control limits. The recently published Asbestos: The survey guide (HSG264) is complementary to these ...
SEM enables asbestos in air to be quantified to very low levels, typically achieving lower limits of detection to 0.0005 fibres/ cm3 and below, compared to the 0.01 fibres/cm3 capability of standard phase contrast microscopy (PCM). SEM can also distinguish between different asbestos fibre types and other non-organic fibres using energy dispersive x-ray analysis (EDXA).. Current analysis using standard PCM has a limit of detection wholly unsuitable for risk assessment in an occupied environment and is only really valid for asbestos removal monitoring.. In such circumstances, SEMs ability to more accurately determine whether asbestos fibres are present means it can better identify the level of any risk that might be present - and what remedial actions are required. As a result, asbestos risk measurements in specific school locations can be used to prioritise risk and target spending on abatement accordingly. This means that scarce maintenance resources can be properly allocated for the treatment ...
Asbestos found at Gooseberry Hill Primary School presented a very low risk to health according to the Department of Education. John Fischer is the Executive Director of Infrastructure at the Department and says the environmental consultant who inspected the school had concluded that the Asbestos Containing Material in the surface soil appeared to be at levels that presented a very low risk to humans.. He said that while the low level of asbestos detected in the soil did not require the area to be sealed it would covered it as an extra precaution.. ...
Although asbestos is a hazardous material it can only pose a risk to health if the asbestos fibres become airborne and are then inhaled. Therefore, most asbestos materials pose little risk unless they are disturbed in some way that allows the fibres to be released into the air. Inhalation of asbestos fibres can lead to serious diseases such as lung cancer, mesothelioma (a cancer of the linings of the lungs - the pleura, or lower digestive tract - the peritoneum) and asbestosis (a chronic fibrosis of the lungs). Many cases of these diseases occurring now are a result of exposure in industries that used asbestos extensively in the past. However, the fact that asbestos was also installed in many buildings means that a wider range of people still have the potential to be exposed - particularly building and maintenance workers. For this reason the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 brought together three previous sets of Regulations covering the prohibition of asbestos, the control of asbestos at ...
Hornblende is an important constituent of many igneous rocks. It is also an important constituent of the rock known as amphibolite, formed by metamorphism of basalt.. Actinolite is an important and common member of the monoclinic series, forming radiating groups of acicular (needle-like) crystals of bright green or grayish-green color. It occurs frequently as a constituent of greenschists. The name (from Greek ακτις/aktis, a ray and λιθος/lithos, a stone) is a translation of the old German word Strahlstein (radiated stone).. Glaucophane, crocidolite, riebeckite and arfvedsonite form a somewhat special group of alkali amphiboles. The first two are blue fibrous minerals, with glaucophane occurring in blueschists and crocidolite (blue asbestos) in ironstone formations-both result from dynamo-metamorphic processes. The latter two are dark green minerals that occur as original constituents of igneous rocks rich in sodium, such as nepheline-syenite and phonolite.. Pargasite is a rare, ...

Are contractors required to test the ceiling for asbestos before attempting to remove it? Weve never had our ceiling tested, and since the house was built in 1976, it most likely does have asbestos. If my worst fear is true, then the contractor tore down the asbestos-containing ceiling and spread the fibers throughout the house. I fear for my siblings, since although we were all younger at the time, my brother and sister are younger than me and will have to continue living in it (greater time exposure). My mom is convinced that nothing is wrong ...

Practically everybody is exposed to small levels of asbestos throughout their lives. It can be found in the air that we breathe in very low concentration with the highest levels occuring in industrial and urban areas. The Asbestos fibers are usually released into the air as a result of activities which include remodeling, demolition work and other activities which involve disturbing asbestos is some way. Asbestos can also be found in some household tap water where the water pipes contain this hazardous material.. ...
This communication serves to inform all parents, legal guardians, teachers, administrators and all other employees that the six-month periodic surveillance of asbestos at all buildings as required by AHERA was performed in the previous July and January. The three-year re-inspection, also required by law, was performed in July of 2019 by a fully accredited Asbestos Inspector from the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management Office. All asbestoscontaining materials that remain are in good condition and are located in primarily in inaccessible areas. The next three-year re-inspection will be due July 2022. Updated asbestos management plans for each school building are available for review in the Operations & Maintenance Office and through the main office of each building ...
Environmental exposure to silicate compounds such as silica and asbestos has been associated with increased autoimmune responses and the development of autoimmune disease in humans. Residents of Libby, MT have experienced significant asbestos exposure due to an asbestos contaminated vermiculite mine near the community over several decades. Residents have developed numerous asbestos-related diseases as well as increased autoimmune responses. However, the exact mechanism by which Libby amphibole asbestos generates autoimmune responses is unclear. To elucidate a possible mechanism for asbestos induced autoimmunity, the cellular effects of Libby amphibole asbestos were characterized in vitro using a phagocytic murine macrophage cell line, which are characteristic of alveolar macrophages. Our results indicate that Libby amphibole asbestos generates oxidative stress in murine macrophages similar to crocidolite asbestos. However, Libby asbestos induces distinct cellular effects compared to crocidolite asbestos
Fibre concentrations of asbestos were measured in the air of a communal dining room in which the damaged ceiling had a sprayed on coating of insulation containing asbestos. The average concentration of crocidolite asbestos fibres was 4 f/cm3, 20 times the highest air concentration that appears to have been reported previously for a public building. It is concluded that although air concentrations of asbestos fibres in public buildings containing asbestos insulation materials are usually low, high concentrations can occur. This may have implications for the risk of exposed persons developing diseases associated with asbestos.. ...
Chrysotile, or white, asbestos is the dominant form of asbestos in international commerce today. It accounts for 99% of current world asbestos production of 2 million tonnes. Chrysotile is an extremely hazardous material. Clinical and epidemiologic studies have established incontrovertibly that chrysotile causes cancer of the lung, malignant mesothelioma of the pleura and peritoneum, cancer of the larynx and certain gastrointestinal cancers. Chrysotile also causes asbestosis, a progressive fibrous disease of the lungs. Risk of these diseases increases with cumulative lifetime exposure to chrysotile and rises also with increasing time interval (latency) since first exposure. Comparative analyses have established that chrysotile is 2 to 4 times less potent than crocidolite asbestos in its ability to cause malignant mesothelioma, but of equal potency of causation of lung cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization has declared chrysotile asbestos a ...

All types of asbestos fibers are known to cause serious health hazards in humans. Amosite and crocidolite are considered the most hazardous asbestos fiber types;[citation needed] however, chrysotile asbestos has also produced tumors in animals and is a recognized cause of asbestosis and malignant mesothelioma in humans, and mesothelioma has been observed in people who were occupationally exposed to chrysotile, family members of the occupationally exposed, and residents who lived close to asbestos factories and mines. During the 1980s and again in the 1990s it was suggested at times that the process of making asbestos cement could neutralize the asbestos, either via chemical processes or by causing cement to attach to the fibers and changing their physical size; subsequent studies showed that this was untrue, and that decades-old asbestos cement, when broken, releases asbestos fibers identical to those found in nature, with no detectable alteration. Exposure to asbestos in the form of fibers is ...
Obtain an Asbestos Abatement Permit. Asbestos Fact:. Asbestos is a material that can be found in buildings and can be harmful to human health. The Districts Asbestos Abatement Program ensures that asbestos removal contractors protect their own health and safety, and the health and safety of building occupants and the general public.. Answers to Common Questions:. What is asbestos?. Asbestos is a group of naturally occurring silicate minerals that separate into thin but strong fibers. Asbestos is a non-combustible, excellent insulator with a very high tensile strength. It is durable, flexible and resistant to wear. Six asbestos minerals were commonly used commercially - chrysotile, amosite, crocidolite, anthophylite, tremolite and actinolite.. How does asbestos harm people?. Undamaged, asbestos may cause no threat. It is when asbestos-containing material is disturbed that tiny asbestos fibers are released. These fibers enter the body through inhalation or ingestion. What are the health effects ...
Mesothelioma is a disease where cells in the mesothelium become abnormal and divide without order or control. The cancer cells can invade nearby tissues and organs or spread to other areas of the body. Mesothelioma usually affects the pleura, the membrane that surrounds the lungs. This form of the disease is called pleural mesothelioma. The peritoneum can also be affected, which is known as peritoneal mesothelioma. It rarely begins in the pericardium.. Mesothelioma can be divided into three types: epithelioid, sarcomatoid and mixed/biphasic. Epithelioid mesothelioma has the best outlook and makes up 50% to 70% of all mesothelioma cases.. Decades ago, researchers connected the development of mesothelioma to crocidolite asbestos exposure in South African miners. Approximately 70% to 90% of patients who develop mesothelioma have some prior asbestos exposure commonly through work. Mesothelioma cases tend to come from those working near or in shipyards and plants that produce asbestos ...
Asbestos is still widely being used for house roofing. Many people in the village dont know the dangers of asbestos which are used as roof/canopy. Asbestos enters the body by inhalation. Long term inhalation of asbestos can pose a deadly health risk.. The impact from inhaling asbestos fibres can not be seen in a short time frame. Sometimes the symptoms will appear within 20-30 years after the exposure to the first asbestos fibres.. Asbestos fibres can cause asbestosis (the occurrence of scar tissue in the lungs), lung cancer and mesothelioma (cancer in the Mesothelium membrane). The risk of this disease will increase due to the large amount inhalation of asbestos fibres.. Also, the risk of lung cancer caused by inhalation of asbestos fibres is greater than cigarette smoke. This is because asbestos consists of small fibres that are easily separated, so if the fibres are airborne and inhaled will be harmful to the body health.. Usually, this asbestos fibre can pose a health risk if it entered ...
Montréal, September 19, 2012 - The Québec Medical Association (QMA) applauds the decision of the federal government to no longer oppose listing the chrysotile form of asbestos as a hazardous substance in Annex III to the Rotterdam Convention. This highly significant decision affirms the hazard of asbestos in all its forms.. Since 1945, the medical community has been compiling and identifying the pathologies related to asbestos. The QMAs position on the use of asbestos is clear: chrysotile asbestos is a carcinogen and causes asbestosis. Continuing to operate asbestos mines and export this product are unacceptable activities from a medical standpoint.. According to the Institut national de santé publique, even when controlled, the safe use of asbestos is not achievable in practice. It is therefore important, for the health of asbestos workers and the health of people around the world, to favour banning the mining and export of this substance.. The Québec Medical Association is now urging the ...
May 2002. Executive Summary Although measurement of asbestos fibres in drinking water is technically difficult, research has indicated that most waters, whether or not distributed through asbestos cement pipes, contain asbestos fibres. This is because asbestos is widely found in the environment as a consequence of natural dissolution of asbestos-containing minerals. Asbestos cement pipes can give rise to an increase in the numbers of asbestos fibres in drinking water, particularly when first installed. The risks to health from ingestion of asbestos fibres in food and drinking water have been extensively studied by both epidemiology and by experiments in laboratory animals. Most epidemiological studies found no association with any specific gastrointestinal cancers, although a small number of studies did find a weak positive association. The studies considered the best did not provide evidence for a link between asbestos in drinking water and cancer. Of the 8 long-term animal studies, only one ...
Non-friable, or bonded ACM is used to refer to ACM in which the asbestos is firmly bound in the matrix of the material. These materials are unlikely to release measurable levels of airborne asbestos fibre into the environment if they are undisturbed. Therefore, they generally pose a lower risk to health. However, activities that may abrade the ACM such as drilling, grinding have the potential to release higher concentrations of airborne asbestos fibres into the environment. The non-friable ACM are mainly made up of asbestos fibres together with a bonding compound (such as cement), and typically contain up to 15 per cent asbestos. Non-friable ACM are solid, quite rigid and the asbestos fibres are tightly bound in the material. Non-friable ACM are the most common in domestic houses. They are commonly called fibro, asbestos cement and AC sheeting. Examples of non-friable ACM include asbestos cement products (flat, profiled and corrugated sheeting used in walls, ceilings and roofs, moulded ...

Asbestos is a mineral fiber. It can be positively identified only with a special type of microscope. There are several types of asbestos fibers. In the past, asbestos was added to a variety of products to strengthen them and to provide heat insulation and fire resistance. We do not specifically test for asbestos. During an inspection we visually check for any signs of asbestos. Typical uses for asbestos in older homes include insulation wrapping on heating pipes, roof shingles and floor tiles. If it is suspected that there could possibly be asbestos it will be noted on the report and the appropriate professional will be referred for further evaluation and/or remediation. Even if asbestos is in your home, this is usually NOT a serious problem. The mere presence of asbestos in a home or a building is not hazardous. The danger is that asbestos materials may become damaged over time. Damaged asbestos may release asbestos fibers and become a health hazard.. ...
What is Asbestos? Asbestos is a generic term for six different naturally occurring mineral formations which have the common characteristic of their crystalline structure being able to be separated into long, thin fibers. The fibers can be curved (serpentine asbestos, or chrysotile) or straight, needle-like fibers (the amphiboles). Chrysotile is the most common type of asbestos in the United States and has been mined in various locations in the United States. Asbestos fibers are present in the air throughout the United States. This is partly due to fibers broken from exposed asbestos containing rocks, but more has been released from asbestos containing products, such as vehicle brakes. Asbestos was called the miracle mineral due to its many unique physical properties. Asbestos was added to many building materials because of its ability to retard fire, strengthen products, and acoustically insulate. Asbestos use in building materials peaked in the years following World War II through the ...
by admin , Jul 21, 2017 , Asbestos, Environment Agency, Environmental Health, Water Framework Directive. As you will be aware we have had major concerns about our ageing and deteriorating asbestos cement drinking water pipes for some time now. Due to the age of previous significant development in Cranleigh in the 60s, we suspected that they may contain crocidolite (blue asbestos), in addition to chrysotile (white asbestos). Although Thames Water assured us that the pipes were constructed from white asbestos, our own research did not reflect this, and we have been pushing for testing to be carried out.. Over the past two weeks we were successful in getting Thames Water to send a section of drinking water pipe, being replaced in the Hitherwood area, for independent testing to confirm the presence of blue asbestos (crocidolite).

Background: All forms of asbestos are now banned in 52 countries. Safer products have replaced many materials that once were made with it. Nonetheless, many countries still use, import, and export asbestos and asbestos-containing products, and in those that have banned other forms of asbestos, the so-called controlled use of chrysotile asbestos is often exempted from the ban. In fact, chrysotile has accounted for , 95% of all the asbestos used globally. Objective: We examined and evaluated the literature used to support the exemption of chrysotile asbestos from the ban and how its exemption reflects the political and economic influence of the asbestos mining and manufacturing industry. Discussion: All forms of asbestos, including chrysotile, are proven human carcinogens. All forms cause malignant mesothelioma and lung and laryngeal cancers, and may cause ovarian, gastrointestinal, and other cancers. No exposure to asbestos is without risk. Illnesses and deaths from asbestos exposure are ...

While mesothelioma is the most well known illness caused by exposure to asbestos, it is not the only one. Another significant illness caused by asbestos is asbestosis. The first diagnosis of asbestosis was made in England, in 1924 following the death of a 36 year old asbestos worker.. Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that can be found in several different forms. Asbestos is known for its strength and resistance to heat. While its like to serious respiratory illnesses is now well known, asbestos is not banned in the United States. However, the use of asbestos has been extensively regulated by both state and federal laws since the mid 1970s, due to its carcinogenic properties and the other health problems it causes. The risk of exposure to asbestos is increased, however, because laws regulating the use of asbestos outside of the U.S. are often lax, so goods imported from other counties are still imported into the country.. Another common cause of exposure to asbestos is during the remediation or ...
Asbestos has been banned from use since 1990 due to the many health risks that it was discovered to cause.

Asbestos was a widely used material between the 1950s and 1980s, it is a naturally occurring fibrous material derived from metamorphic rocks; most of the asbestos in the UK would have originally been imported from Canada.. Asbestos is not only strong and flexible, but it also has a natural resistance to heat, fire, chemicals and electricity, these physical characteristics meant that as a construction material it was applied to a variety of products; estimates suggest that at its peak asbestos was used in over 3,000 products ranging from vinyl flooring, roofing tiles, insulation and even domestic appliances.. There are three types of Asbestos: Brown (Amosite), Blue (Crocidolite) and White (Chrysotile). A professional survey should be sought prior to the removal of the asbestos containing material (ACM), this will not only identify which type of asbestos it is, but will also identify the level of risk it posses to the occupants and therefore whether it should be removed as a matter of urgency of ...
What are the adverse effects of Asbestos? Discover the Health Risks Fact Sheet for Asbestos from latest research. Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals, which all have in common their eponymous asbestiform habit: long (roughly 1:20 aspect ratio), thin fibrous crystals, with each visible fiber composed of millions of microscopic fibrils that can be released by abrasion and other processes. They are commonly known by their colors, as blue asbestos, brown asbestos, white asbestos, and green asbestos. Asbestos mining existed more than 4,000 years ago, but large-scale mining began at the end of the 19th century, when manufacturers and builders began using asbestos for its desirable physical properties: sound absorption, average tensile strength, resistance to fire, heat, electricity, and affordability. It was used in such applications as electrical insulation for hotplate wiring and in building insulation. When asbestos is used for its resistance to fire or heat, the fibers are
02/18/2013 // Chicago, IL, USA // Cooney & Conway // Jessica McNeil // (press release). CHICAGO, IL - (News: asbestos attorney news) - Most people are aware of the common places where asbestos has been found, such as in insulation, drywall, and automotive parts. But asbestos has shown up in some lesser-known and somewhat surprising places too. As a result, in the past, some people may have unknowingly exposed themselves to asbestos, which can cause mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis, while doing chores around the home or using everyday products. One place where you may have least expected to find asbestos is in a handheld hair blow dryer. Blow dryers were often manufactured using asbestos, but it took a photographer to discover that the dryers actually emitted asbestos fibers. The photographer was drying film negatives with a blow dryer, and noted small flecks of dust on the negatives, which turned out to be asbestos. It was found that exposure to asbestos through use of a hair dryer was ...

Awareness of the hazards associated with asbestos fibers may be a recent medical discovery, however, it was first linked to health issues as early as the first century, A.D. by a Roman historian. The recommended treatment was for workers to wear a wet cloth over their mouths and noses, and to work upwind when mining asbestos rock. Often the first signs of asbestos exposure diseases may take twelve to forty years after initial exposure to appear. Studies in the 1960s, along with the previous findings from earlier studies, found there was a significant risk for unprotected workers exposed occupationally to asbestos fibers in the air. Many people who are exposed to asbestos fibers show no symptoms associated with exposure. It has not been determined how to predict who will be affected once exposed. However, it has been medically proven that people who had unprotected exposure to airborne asbestos fibers do have an increased risk of contracting one or more of the following three diseases. ...
Asbestos Survey in Croughton. There are 6 types of asbestos but only 3 have been widely used in building materials: White, Brown, Blue. Strictly speaking blue is the most dangerous, followed by brown and then white. However the material with which the asbestos was mixed is an important risk factor.
