As we know today, the use of and prolonged exposure to this material can cause serious health hazards that prove fatal in many cases. Until this was understood from a scientific and medical viewpoint it was considered to be a versatile, multi-use building material.
Over time, as with many areas in the UK, in Warrington asbestos testing became necessary as people began getting afflicted by diseases. The latest reports say that four thousand deaths occur in a year with asbestos is being named as the single biggest cause for deaths in workplaces and homes. A fatal lung disease called asbestosis and a form of lung cancer called mesothelioma have been clearly identified as arising due to exposure to asbestos. The actual cause is due to inhalation of the asbestos fibres, which if not expelled from the lungs can become embedded in the internal mucal linings and cause severe medical conditions. Small amounts do not pose serious hazards but asbestos material that crumbles or that has been treated by sawing, sanding or scraping is likely to create a very serious problem.
