These fiber minerals used in construction applications are shaped like needles. When the fibres become friable in the air, they can enter the body by inhalation or ingestion (the nose or mouth) lodging in the trachea, alveoli and bronchial tissue. The asbestos fibers work into the lung tissue and may cause Asbestosis, Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer.
There are two classifications of asbestos. Fibrous serpentine is the first one, containing the mineral chrysotile. The other type is fibrous amphibole including the five most common types of asbestos minerals: Actinolite, Amosite, Anthophyllite, Crocidolite, and Tremolite.
