The Dangers of Asbestos (Infographic)

Asbestos is mineral made up of tiny fibers, used often in commercial construction and manufacturing between the 1950's and 1970's. Manufacturers used asbestos for its strength, resistance to damage, and affordability; however, despite its versatility and strength, asbestos poses a number of health problems. Commercials detailing asbestos-related health problems, such as mesothelioma and lung cancer have been increasing, as clients can obtain compensation if long-term exposure to asbestos was someone else's fault.

Despite the major attention asbestos has been attracting since the late 1990's, what exactly is asbestos, and how much do you really know about the health risks associated with the building material? Blackwater Law has created a user-friendly infographic detailing the facts and history of asbestos.
