Anyone who is exposed to asbestos at some point during their life is at risk of developing an asbestos-related disease. However not many of us realise that very low levels of asbestos are actually present in the air, water, and soil. People who become ill from asbestos are usually exposed to it on a regular basis, most often in a job where they work directly with the material or through substantial environmental contact.

You should always contact your doctor about any asbestos exposure you have experienced and history is very important. Asbestos related symptoms can happen decades after you have been exposed; these symptoms may include;

Weight loss, loss of appetite & fatigue. Shortness of breath, pain in the chest, a cough that is persistant and gets worse as time passes. Difficulty swallowing and coughing up blood.

A spokesperson for said "anyone worried about the history of their asbestos exposure should contact their doctor immediately. Diagnosing your illness should always be your number one priority."

"After diagnosis you should also consider your legal options. Who is responsible for your abestos exposure? The company you worked for at the time? Or the company who manufactured the asbestos?"
