Summary: This public health statement tells you about asbestos and the effects of exposure.


Public Health Statement for Asbestos



This Public Health Statement is the summary chapter from the Toxicological Profile for Asbestos.

It is one in a series of Public Health Statements about hazardous substances and their health effects. A shorter version, the ToxFAQs reeport is also available.

This information is important because this substance may harm you.

The effects of exposure to any hazardous substance depend on the dose, the duration, how you are exposed, personal traits and habits, and whether other chemicals are present.

Yes, unfortunately we have all come into contact with substances that have been determined to be a health hazard to some degree, so it is wise to become informed and educated about these risks so that we can identify these potential problems and minimized our exposure to asbestos-contamination as much as possible.
