“Asbestos” is the name of a group of similar minerals with separable, long, and thin fibers. Asbestos has long been suspected as a health
threat to humans because the fibers can be inhaled and are difficult to remove from the lungs. Although the use of asbestos and asbestos products has dramatically decreased, they are still found in many residential and commercial settings and continue to pose a health risk to workers and others.
