Three Signs You and Your Family Could Be Infected
1) The Fingers and Toes
The hands are the gateway to a person’s health(in particular, the nails). There are many studies that link finger and nail issues with different types of heart and lung diseases. Do you notice any clubbing on your nails? This is what happens when nail tissue underneath begins to thicken and harden a little bit. The fingers and nails will then extend themselves in a bubble like fashion(rounding and protruding out). The reason for that is lack of oxygen. There is no where for the blood supply and oxygen to go. This will impact the hands or feet(sometimes both).
You might want to get checked out if you start to notice abnormaltiies in the growth.
2) Dry Cough
Do you have a dry cough that is constant? There is a difference between having one to due to respiratory issues and one from asbestos. This is due to the lack of mucus production inside and overall performance with inhaling and exhaling.
Do you also notice some blood being coughed up? Do you notice phlegm that is kind of “rust in color”? That is a sign that something is wrong. Phelgm is supposed to be clear(not rust).
You or a loved one could have developed mesothelioma(a type of asbestos-related cancer).
3) Tired All the Time Do you feel tired all the time(I mean more than usual)? Fatigue can be due to many medical-related issues. However, you should get checked out if the fatigue is unusual(for the person) and consistent.
