Asbestos was used as a ‘miracle’ material, particularly as an addition to building materials. Cheap and easily accessible, it added strength, durability, as well as insulating and fire retardant properties to the building materials. However, it was discovered that prolonged exposure to asbestos caused incurable disease and cancer, notably malignant mesothelioma and asbestosis. While asbestos in itself is not dangerous, it is when it is damaged, and disturbed that it is a huge problem. The damaged asbestos releases fibres which can be inhaled. Once inhaled they embed in the lining of the lungs and so cause cancer and disease.
