Asbestos is the collective term for a number of naturally occurring silicate minerals with a fiber structure. The name asbestos comes from the Greek word 'asbestos', which means indestructible or transient.
Some asbestos fibers are so small that the cilia and mucous membranes in our airways can not drain them. This allows them to penetrate deep into the lungs and cause maximum damage. For example, asbestosis, a disease in which the alveoli become more and more difficult to absorb oxygen. Asbestosis can cause pleural cancer or lung cancer.
Asbestos in Canada, South Africa, the former Soviet Union and Australia as a natural mineral is mined in open mining.
There are 1600 asbestos deaths every year in the Netherlands. Worldwide there are even 100,000!
There is no treatment for the Asbestosis disease. Asbestosis is a lung disease that is caused by inhaling a large amount of asbestos dust. The symptoms include shortness of breath and a dry and painful cough. Often this goes along with pain in the chest. Asbestosis is progressive and irreversible.
The aim of asbestos inventories is to gain insight into the asbestos problem and to ensure that asbestos is traceable and therefore manageable. Asbestos inventories are a great way to get the facts up quickly and separate the sense and nonsense around asbestos. Result is a safe environment.
