Health Problems Caused by Asbestos

Asbestos is one of the most widely recognized construction health hazards. In addition to causing asbestosis, a debilitating lung disease, it is also an established carcinogen. It causes lung cancer and mesothelioma and has been linked to other cancers, such as ovar- ian and laryngeal. It is estimated by the World Health Organization that 43,000 people die each year due to asbestos exposure. Millions more will die in the coming decades, since many years can elapse between exposure and onset of illness.
