Asbestos poses extraordinarily serious hazards to human health. It causes asbestosis, a chronic disease of the lungs. Also it is a potential carcinogen. It is known to cause cancer of the lung, mesothelioma (a rare tumor of the lining of the lung), cancer of the larynx and gastrointestinal cancer.

As buildings containing asbestos age, deteriorate and become subject to renovation and demolition, the likelihood increases year by year, that the asbestos now in them will be disturbed and become airborne. Once it is in the air, this asbestos can be inhaled by workers, by school children, and by members of the public. After it is inhaled, it will in some persons eventually and inevitably cause cancer.
