Asbestos Recovery Team
Taking You into a Cleaner Future
It has been historically documented that the effects of exposure and inhalation of asbestos have been catastrophic, long-term and even fatal. Studies have shown that this includes fibrotic lung disease (asbestosis) and changes in the lining of the chest cavity. These diseases can ultimately result in reduced respiratory function and may even be fatal. Long-term inhalation of asbestos fibres also increases the risk of lung cancer and mesothelioma.
The most recent Global Burden of Disease estimate of the number of asbestosis deaths is a staggering 3,495 and was published in 2016. Asbestos-caused cancer was identified in the late 1930’s but despite the damning evidence, it is still used across the globe. Various estimates have been made over time including those of World Health Organization (WHO) and International Labour Organization: reporting 107,000 – 112,000 deaths
