Exposure to Asbestos

Asbestos has historically been used in industries such as the construction industry; building insulation is one of the biggest causes of workplace mesothelioma. When fibres or particles from asbestos are inhaled, they embed themselves in the cells of the internal organs, particularly the lungs, and then the damage begins. It can be 20-50 years before sufferers show signs of mesothelioma and this is why signs of this disease can also be confused with signs of aging.
