4 Common Signs of Asbestos Poisoning

Asbestos poisoning is just one of several dangerous results of exposure to asbestos. The signs of asbestos poisoning can take decades to be noticeable, so many people are not aware that they have been exposed until the condition has progressed to a dangerous degree. However, certain people may have a higher risk than others of developing mesothelioma or other asbestos-related conditions.

Asbestos fibers were generally used in construction and manufacturing businesses before the 1980s when use of this material was formally banned in the United States. Unfortunately, many employers neglected to tell their workers of the dangers of asbestos exposure, making it more likely that they would later be affected by asbestos poisoning.

Are You Aware of These Symptoms?

Although the signs of asbestos poisoning may not appear until years or even decades after initial exposure, it is important to be aware of some of the most common symptoms of this condition if you have been exposed to asbestos. Four of the most common signs of asbestos poisoning include:

  1. Persistent coughing
  2. Coughing up blood
  3. Wheezing/difficulty breathing
  4. Difficulty swallowing

There are other signs of asbestos poisoning, but these are some of the most commonly reported.
