Dangers of Asbestos – Transcript

Mesothelioma is a form of lung cancer that is almost always related directly to asbestos exposure.  Cellino & Barnes would like to help you understand the complications of asbestos exposure and mesothelioma.  This video will help you understand why asbestos exposure is so dangerous.VIDEO:
Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that’s resistant to chemicals and heat, and very tough.  It was also added to the building materials of many older homes.  As a worker or homeowner, the hazard exists when undertaking a renovation or demolition.  The danger is releasing the asbestos fibers into the air.When a worker breathes, asbestos fibers enter the mouth and nose, and flow down the air passages deep into the lungs.  The fibers lodge in the delicate lung tissue where oxygen is absorbed into the blood.  Immune system cells try and breakdown the asbestos fibers and become damaged and die.  Scar tissue forms around the dead cells and spreads as more fibers imbed in the lungs.  Asbestos fibers can remain in the lungs for long periods, and the scar tissue that results continues to develop for many years after exposure.  Eventually, so much scar tissue develops that the lungs stop working.Since the year 2000, more workers have died from asbestos disease in B.C. than any other workplace injury.If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please contact us today.

Client Thanks

But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
