Asbestos is a fibrous amphibole which is used for making fireproof articles. The main source of asbestos in indoor air is vinyl floor tiles, patching compounds, textured paints, insulation products including furnace, stove and pipe insulation etc. When inhaled, asbestos fibers may become lodged in the microscopic tubules of your lungs and can cause asbestosis or lung cancer. Workers involved in shipbuilding trades, asbestos mining and milling, manufacturing of asbestos textiles and other asbestos products have been found to be particularly exposed and more susceptible to asbestosis which may be characterized by pain in the chest or abdomen or by shortage of breath. Presence of asbestos can be detected by various asbestos testing services which are often based on polarized light microscopy (PLM).
