Read more by Mark PricePublished October 05, 2018 06:55:10Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, found in various minerals including gold and silver.
It is a component of most building materials and is used in building products including bricks, cement, concrete, and plaster.
It is a highly flammable substance, and it can burn at temperatures up to 500 degrees Celsius.
It has been linked to cancer and asthma.
However, asbestos is also a source of value for the British economy.
The value of the UK’s asbestos industry has risen by 30% since 2010, and its share in the UK economy has risen from 13% in 2012 to 23% in 2019.
According to the UK National Health Service (NHS), the country produces an estimated 20 million tonnes of asbestos, and the estimated value of British-manufactured asbestos products is around £9 billion.
Asbestos has been associated with serious health issues in the past, particularly asthma, and has been identified as a carcinogen.
It can be toxic, and inhaling asbestos can cause lung and respiratory diseases, which can result in heart disease and respiratory infections.
As well as affecting people with asthma and lung cancer, it can cause breathing problems in older people, and can cause bronchitis and other serious lung problems.
As it can be extremely difficult to identify the source of asbestos exposure, the government has recommended that people be aware of its potential effects, and to get advice on whether they should have asbestos exposure checked out by their GP.
However if you have any concerns about asbestos or your home, you can contact your local health authority, or contact your council or health authority.
The government will make sure that all affected communities receive the support they need to tackle asbestos-related health and safety issues.
If you or anyone you know needs asbestos exposure testing, please call the National Health Services on 0161 222 8555 or contact the local health board or health department.
