What are the dangers caused by asbestos roof tiles or slates?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is resistant to degradation by chemicals as well as thermal energy. They also have the feature of electricity and fire resistance and have strong fibers that can be woven or bound.
Asbestos was used thousands of years back in clothing, candle wicks, pottery, and many more. But this mineral came into the limelight only after its use started in the construction industry as a light weighted alternative and it became common in every home across Edinburgh.
Many people passed away from the serious and fatal impact of Asbestos.
Following are the fatal and serious health conditions that might occur due to the asbestos roofing tiles:
Mesothelioma: Cancer of linings of the lungs.
