Asbestos can be dangerous

Exposure to asbestos causes many cancers, including lung cancer, mesothelioma (a rare cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity), laryngeal cancer, ovarian cancer and possibly pharyngeal, stomach and colorectal cancers.

When disasters happen, asbestos can get disturbed and become airborne. This short video talks about where asbestos is most commonly found and how to identify it.

It is important to know, if you do find asbestos, don't attempt to remove it yourself. Be safe. Report it, and have it removed by a professional.
