Postby mmartric » Mon Oct 23, 2017 2:46 pm

hi guys, i have a question related to asbestos. I have seen the question below in one test, and i am not sure about the answer.
What particle can people breath, asbestos or CO2?
In my opinion CO2 is better than asbestos, right?

thanks for the help!

actually... asbestos can cause a type of cancer called mesothelioma when breathed into your body.
it was widely used in the 70's in the construction industry for insolation. also used in ships etc in boilers etc. for the similar purposes.
mesothelioma was known to be an almost incurable type of cancer although many very dedicated doctors have tried different methods and the prognosis have been improving.
unfortunately, many construction workers have become victims of this as it was widely used in the construction industry.
