Back then, asbestos was a popular material used widely in construction and many other industries. Little did we know that if inhaled, it poses a serious health problem known as asbestos mesothelioma. There are no risks involved if the material is enclosed or it is tightly bound in a product, like when it is used as sidings or asbestos floor tiles. At present, there is no common cure for this disease but there are available treatments. It can be treated through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
