Asbestosis
.
Asbestosis is caused by inhaling asbestos fibre. Although occupational laws have reduced the instances of asbestosis in Australia and many countries worldwide, workers engaging in abatements, grinding new brake pads, or manufacturing roofing materials may still be exposed to harmful asbestos fibres. A history of employment in building, plumbing, automobile repair, or demolition before the mid-twentieth century raises the risk of asbestosis. The more a person’s exposure, the higher the chance of having asbestosis. It usually takes many years between exposure and the onset of lung illness. There is no evidence that asbestos exposure in soil causes illness. Asbestosis is generally a slow-progressing type of lung fibrosis.
