What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral. It is divided into two mineralogical groups, and not all varieties of asbestos are used commercially.
The first group is known as the amphibole family. The family includes crocidilite (“blue asbestos”), amosite (“brown asbestos”), tremolite, anthophyllite and actinolite. Among the various types of amphibole fibers, only crocidilite and amosite were used in commercial products. However, the “noncommercial” amphibole fibers (tremolite, anthophyllite and actinolite) may be present as contaminants in commercial products that use chrysotile asbestos, vermiculite and talc.
The serpentine group is the other mineralogical group of asbestos, and includes only the chrysotile variety of asbestos. Despite its hazardous properties, chrysotile was very popular with industry. It accounts for over 90% of the commercial asbestos used in the United States.
Asbestos is a toxic substance once used in hundreds of products in the United States. Asbestos can cause a variety of diseases, including mesothelioma — a rare cancer affecting the lining of the lung, abdomen or heart. Unfortunately for those affected, asbestos-related diseases could have been prevented, had the asbestos industry acted responsibly decades ago to protect American workers, their families, and the public from exposure to the toxic fiber.
This Web site looks at the background of asbestos use in the United States and the relationship between asbestos and diseases like mesothelioma. We dedicate this Web site to the American worker and to all people who have been affected by asbestos-related diseases.
There is a law firm that has represented mesothelioma victims and others injured by asbestos exposure for over 27 years. We hope that this Web site provides the information that you are seeking. If you would like more information, or would like to speak with us. Check out this site.
