What is asbestosis?

Asbestosis is a non-malignant, progressive lung disease caused by exposure to airborne asbestos fibers. Victims of asbestosis may have no symptoms for 20-30 years after exposure, but asbestosis causes permanent damage to the lungs and there is no cure or effective treatments. In advanced stages asbestosis victims require oxygen 24/7, and asbestosis can cause pulmonary hypertension, cardio pulmonary arrest and death.
