3 Reasons Why Asbestos is Bad for Your Health

The Health Risks Related To Asbestos That You Might Know About

Did you know, the longer you breathe asbestos, the more prone to health issues you are?

Smokers put themselves at a greater risk because smoking irritates the lungs. The more you smoke, the harder it is for the air to get inside. That means smokers are twice as likely to be affected by asbestos than a non-smoker.

Mesothelioma

Do you live with someone who has worked with asbestos, live nearby to an asbestos field, or breathed it in yourself? You need to get checked out by a doctor now. It has affected your health with your knowledge.

Do you remember how the teacher taught you, in health class, that living with someone who smokes can impact your health just as much as theirs? The same rules apply.

Do you have symptoms like stomach pain, fatigue, and constipation? You need to see a doctor.

Mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer that impacts those with these symptoms. It can take up to twenty years for the signs to show. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is something that most people feel is only reserved for the smokers in the room. Not true. Asbestos can cause lung cancer, according to multiple sources and doctors. You just need to inhale a small amount for the lung cancer to start developing.

Lung cancer can start in the lungs and work its way to anywhere in the body. The common myth about lung cancer is that it is reserved for the lungs. Once again, not true.

Get checked by a doctor if you feel you have been exposed, even if just as a safety precaution.
