ASBESTOS: Lurking silently to kill

In the realm of health hazards, asbestos is a silent assassin, with its detrimental effects stealthily manifesting between 10 to 40 years after exposure. Often referred to as the "lung killer," this fibrous silicate mineral leaves a trail of scarred lung tissue and breathlessness in its wake, a grim reminder of its enduring presence. 



This silent killer is classified into two categories: Class A (Friable Asbestos) and Class B (Non-Friable Asbestos). The former, aptly named for its powdery consistency, poses the gravest danger as it easily crumbles into dust, releasing asbestos fibers into the air which then find their way into the lungs of anyone who breathes it. It thus poses an imminent threat to anyone within proximity, necessitating specialised removal procedures. 


On the other hand, Class B asbestos, which can be found within compounds like cement or plastic, exhibits a lower risk profile due to its bonded nature. It remains secure unless disturbed. 

Despite the growing awareness surrounding its hazards, the nature of asbestos remains a formidable challenge. Its invisible presence defies detection without comprehensive sampling surveys, leaving householders grappling with uncertainty as to whether asbestos may be lurking within their homes. 


While strides have been made in certain countries to reduce asbestos-related risks, the battle against its pervasive use is far from over.


Understanding the legacy of asbestos is imperative in navigating its lingering threats. By shedding light on its elusive nature and potential dangers, we take a crucial step towards safeguarding public health and forging a path towards asbestos-free environments.
