What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral composed of durable and heat-resistant fibres. Historically, it was widely used in construction materials for its insulation and fireproofing properties. However, prolonged exposure to asbestos can lead to serious health conditions such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Therefore, it is now heavily regulated and its use is restricted in many countries.
