Asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral fiber. It is used in building construction for its strength, fire resistance, and insulation properties. Many asbestos products have been banned, and manufacturers have voluntarily limited use of asbestos in many products due to risks of lung disease. However, asbestos can still be found in a variety of materials today.
